The Hip Hop community is in shock and mourning the passing of DJ Big Kap.

The legendary New York DJ, born real name Keith Carter, passed away early Tuesday morning at 45. The cause of death is unknown at this time.

Big Kap is described as “one of the most respected and well known DJ’s to ever step on the scene from Biggie to Shade45, Big Kap is a true legend and pioneer in the Hip Hop game.” His 1999 album, The Tunnel with Funkmaster Flex is hailed as a Hip Hop classic with posthumous features from the Notorious B.I.G. and 2Pac, as well as verses from Dr. Dre, Nas, Eminem, and Jay-Z.

My heart is so heavy right now! Just woke up to the very sad news of the passing of legendary New York DJ Big Kap. As a young girl from the South working hip hop, it wasn't easy getting our records played. I talk about in my book how if you wanted to get NY to support you had to get Flex, Kap, Clue etc to rock with you. Kap always and I mean always took my call and showed us love. He taught me how to really push the southern music in NY and he always took chances on new underground records and helped open up NY for south. Wow I am truly sad but so grateful to you Kap. I will miss you my friend. Damn we were talking abut partnering on some events. Wow heart is heavy. Rest easy my friend and I know you are now on the heavenly 1s and 2s with our Heavenly Father DJ JC ???? #Legendary #HipHopProfessional #culture #gonetoosoon #tears
