R.I.P. DJ TimBuck2

It’s been a full 24 hours since the news impacted social media yesterday and it’s still shaking today. The Chicago hip hop scene lost an important member of its community with DJ TimBuck2’s passing due to cancer. He was only 34.

TimBuck2 was a mainstay on WGCI and in the scene with a weekly TimBuck2 Tuesdays event. He knew the entire scene from the big names to, most importantly, the independent artists. He gave many up and comers their first radio play with his #GoIll Radio show on WGCI weekends. In fact, it was really the only outlet artists here from the Chi had to mainstream radio. Think about that, that’s huge.

The countless amount of tributes spoke to that and the person himself. I curated a lot below and though I didn’t know him personally as well as everyone, I do have fond memories of some of his sets and enjoying life with the Treated Crew (Holt and Mano, specifically.) Sad loss. Give his unreleased mix a spin below too (h/t FSD). R.I.P.

We miss u @djtimbuck2 ♥️👏🏾🙏🏾 20/3 #bandofbrothers
