West Coast rap legend Ice Cube has paid his respect to late Westside Connection producer DJ Crazy Toones. The hip-hop veteran and others have remembered the musicmaker’s legacy.

This week, Cube and Westside Connection member Mack 10 kept Toones’ memory alive.

Some reports claim medical complications ultimately caused CT’s death.

Famed West Coast DJ and producer DJ Crazy Toones passed away today (Jan. 9) from a heart attack. Born Lamar Dupré Calhoun, Crazy Toones was the brother of Texas-hailing rapper WC and got into music when his brother did in the early 1990’s. Crazy Toones came to be known in the underground scene as something of mixtape connect, often hosting cyphers to his menacing, bass heavy beats. (XXL Mag)
