DJ Hideo Dies Of Cancer

(AllHipHop News) The Hip-Hop community lost another member to cancer on Saturday (April 24th), with the death of Los Angeles’ DJ Hideo. 

Hideo, 42, succumbed to colon and liver cancer while surrounded by family members and his children. 

Last week, Hideo had to check into Mission Hospital because of weakness and pain. 

“Because of the weakness that I’ve been feeling for the past

week,” Hideo wrote on his blog shortly before his death. “My vitals are

stable and now need the assistance of a ventilator to breathe. I’m very

aware of my condition and communicate in writing.  Right now, the one

thing I really do miss is drinking a nice ice cold soda.”

According to close friend, DJ K-Sly, DJ Hideo was in severe pain,

told doctors not to resuscitate him and he passed away round 3:30 PM. 

In early 2009, DJ Hideo was diagnosed with colon cancer. 

DJ Hideo worked for KKBT 100.3 The Beat as Mixshow Director and

Program and Production Assistant for nine years. Additionally, he

served as the DJ on the Steve Harvey Morning Show, Soul Assassins Radio

with Cypress Hill and others.
