R.I.P. to Tony D
The Hip-Hop community has lost another great. Anthony Depula, 42, known as "Tony D" and "Harvee Wallbanger" of Trenton, NJ, made his transition on Saturday evening April 4th after losing control of his vehicle and crashing, leaving him w/ severe neck injuries. Read the story here: The Times (NJ). Tony D is responsible for producing tracks for groups like Poor Righteous Teachers, Blaque Spurm, King Sun, YZ, Crusaders For Real Hip-Hop, and others, as well as producing his own albums. There were also reports of him being the producer for "O.P.P." by Naughty By Nature, and tracks for Heavy D, that he didn't recieve credit for, although the matters were settled out of court. For those reading this post, please take a moment of silence in honor of one we have lost. PEACE!
