RIP DJ SPELL














Brian Caufield aka DJ Spell was murdered this week in LA.

Next month I am going to try to compile some of his music together and maybe work on a tribute depending what some of our close friends are thinking.

Until then...

Please go to DJ SPELL'S MYSPACE PAGE and PLAY BRIAN'S MUSIC AS LOUD AS YOU CAN IN MEMORY OF A GREAT MAN. R.I.P.

PLAY IT LOUD ENOUGH SO THAT HE CAN HEAR IT!

(Editor's Note: As I revisit his Myspace page I am in awe, I had no idea dude had gotten up so much with the graffiti, and had been doing so much music. Brian was incredibly prolific and hardworking, it is going to take A LOT more of these articles for us to truly shed light on the scope of his work. The more time I spend on that Myspace page the more distraught I am over this shit.)

  3. I wanted to thank the Colorado Rap Report for having this tribute dedicated to Brian. I didn't know him but heard what happened to him and then searched his myspace page. He was a very talented individual and it is so completely unfortunate we don't get to see more of his artistic talent. I look forward to hearing your compilation of his music.

  5. One of the most original people I've ever met. You helped me take care of my family when I needed someone most. I will keep your art and music alive forever.
