DJ Rashad


After hip-hop was hit with devastating news pertaining to the death of DJ Rashad, many hoped to have some answers as to what caused his death. According to Pitchfork, the information Hyperdub—DJ Rashad's label—received regarding his death wasn't completely accurate.

A representative from Hyperdub told The Guardian that DJ Rashad died because of a blood clot in his leg. This information was from Rashad's cousin, who said that the coroner's report indicated that that was indeed the cause of his death. Now, Rashad's mother refutes the cousin's claim and that the cause for Rashad's death is still unknown. Initially, reports surfaced that drugs were the cause of his death. Originally, the autopsy was thought to be inconclusive.
