News reports indicate that Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM, was found dead in his NY apartment today at about 5:20 PM. Rumor indicates that it may have been from a drug overdose, but we will certainly keep you posted as details develop.
DJ AM first got major recognition as part of the group Crazytown with the smash hit "Butterfly" in 2001. He has scratched on records for many big name artists including Jay-Z and Will Smith. He also was probably one of the biggest sneakerheads of our time.
Rest in peace, Adam. Thank you for your dedication and contribution to hip hop. You will be sorely missed.
