This is a sad day for hip-hop.
In 1999, Funkmaster Flex and DJ Big Kap dropped their acclaimed compilation album, The Tunnel, which featured everyone from Tupac and Biggie, to Jay Z and the Ruff Ryders.
There are no details surrounding Big Kap’s death, but many celebrities and friends expressed their condolences on social media.
Woke up to terrible news today … We lost Big Kap …. Not only a great DJ, key part of the flip squad and big dog pit bulls , and incredible talker with a unique and awesome voice but more than anything — great guy …always good for a warm smile and a sincere conversation… Was always very fond of this guy ever since I met him .. RIP brother… Sending love and positive vibes to his family, @funkflex , @ciphasounds and all the pit bulls and flip squad
Kap felt the love and support long before his passing. Cipha Sounds told Global Grind he owes all his success to Big Kap, because he would always show up late to his slot at The Tunnel when Cipha was interning at Hot 97. Check out the story below.
RIP, DJ Big Kap.
