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.
