    Kinda surprised it's been covered with the prominence it has here. Which isn't to say, y'know, prominent, but.
    In the past year or so both Rashad & Spinn had made a pretty decent name for themselves. Touring with Chance the Rapper and back-to-back billings at Pitchfork is pretty significant. Plus Rashad's crossover with the Hyperdub release (that was also a sonic cross-over of sorts for him). There is also the unfortunate bonus factor that this tragedy occurred so closely to the passing of Frankie Knuckles, which probably has some residual impact on the local media's coverage.

    Basically, I'm not really all that surprised. Is it at all weird that the actual cause of death has not yet been released? Apparently the autopsy was scheduled for yesterday but still no official word except for the "drug paraphernalia" found near his body. Never struck me as a heavy drug user or anything, not that I knew him personally of course.

    Well, I know all that. Just saying.

    Anyway, the autopsy was inconclusive, last I heard.

    I've been bumping his shit on the regular and had a pretty long conversation with some dude in Wicker Park about Rashad and footwork in general. Dude knew his shit and was super bummed about this news.
