Today, is a sad day for Chicago and the hip hop community. Timothy Jones, better known to many as "The Heavy Hitter" DJ Timbuck2, has passed away at the age of 34 after battling with cancer. The news broke Saturday morning, when Tim's colleagues at Chicago's urban radio station WGCI took to social media saying "Our hearts are very heavy today... RIP to our brother @DJTIMBUCK2.
To many, Tim was a well-known deejay in the clubs throughout Chicago and for many years, he was also WGCI's Rush Hour deejay on Weekdays and he hosted the station's GoILL show for local talent.
Tim will definitely be missed and we would like to send our prayers and condolences to his family.
