Extraordinary gospel rapper, Lecrae took to Twitter to remember his dear friend and Christian Hip Hop pioneer, DJ Official who passed on to glory after undergoing a double lung transplant. He was 39.
The Grammy award-winning producer and musician was a member of the Christian hip hop collective, 116 Clique.
DJ OfficialÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s real name is Nelson J. Chu. He was LecraeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Deejay until his failing health forced him to retire in 2014.
Lecrae posted series of tweets, eulogising DJ Official for leaving indelible marks in the hearts of many he came across.
