Sadly it's not a good start to 2017...West Coast Hip Hop legend Lamar Calhoun aka DJ Crazy Toones has passed away at the age of 45 from a reported heart attack.
Crazy Toones, the younger brother of WC was a dope DJ (he was Ice Cube's tour DJ) and producer Toones was a member of WC & Tha Madd Circle and made speakers and headphones knock with his trademark Zapp claps, deep bass-lines and classic Parliament/Funkadelic funk and soul samples.
Pour out a little something and bump these classics in your system in his memory.
