It’s with great sadness that DubCNN has to report that DJ Crazy Toones has passed away.

The legendary DJ and producer had a career spanning the decades, initially in the 90s alongside his brother WC, Chilly Chill, Big Gee, Sir Jinx and Coolio as a member of WC & The Maad Circle – then working with Westside Connection and Lench Mob Records.

In recent years he’s been Ice Cube’s official tour DJ and in our most recent update was part of a record with Young Maylay called “Make You Wanna Cry.”

Today the news broke across social media that CT had passed away, we believe due to a heart attack. Fans and artists alike have been sharing their grief on social media – including Mack 10, Immortal Technique, Ben Baller, Alchemist, Ice T, DJ Premier, DJ Pooh, Xzibit, Big Boy, E-A-Ski and more [click here to jump down to the tributes]

DJ Crazy Toones was always a supporter of DubCNN, from our earliest days right through to our most recent past. In 2006 we had the honour of promoting and releasing his “first mixtape of this millennium” entitled; CT Experience with DJ Skee & DJ Reflex

The project featured Ice Cube, The Game, Snoop Dogg, WC, Daz, Damani, Xzibit, MC Ren, King Tee, Jayo Felony, Soopafly, Young Maylay, Bad Lucc and many more. As a tribute to CT we’ve got the full project for you to stream below. You can see our entire archive of Toones here including interviews in 2006 and 2007.
