Very sad news, I found out today (thanks Thun) that one of my favourite Hip Hop producers died in a car accident,Tony Depula aka Tony D from Trenton, New Jersey, was responsible for groups like the Poor Righteous Teachers and YZ and produced for the likes of King Sun, Scott Lark, Kwest The Madd Lad, Almighty & KD Ranks, Blvd Mosse, Blaque Sperm and many others as well as his own solo albums, on the 4th and Broadway and Grand Central labels and group Crusaders For Real Hip Hop, he was also a masterful digger and owned many independent and obscure records he would often use in his Indy Mixes CD's, he also had a ton of unreleased material that he planned on releassing at some stage.

R.I.P. to a great producer and entertaining MC that has left behind a legacy of great beats and artists.
