On July 4th, 1998, the world lost one of it's finest MC's, the man Drum & Bass bowed down before, Stevie Hyper D. A lot of rumors were started and the press had a field day blaming the notorious Rave scene (as per usual) for it's uninhibited use of ecstasy and what ever else they dribble about. So to put some rumors to rest, I have done my homework and this is what I came up with 

On a cool Friday night in a Maidstone bar, the worlds greatest MC was tearing up the mic on a mad set. During drinks (and allegedly some lines) afterwards, he complained to some friends he was not feeling well and later due to a long running heart problem, he left with his girlfriend .

That morning, Saturday, July 4th, 1998, Stevie Hyper D died in his bed from what the coroner found was a Cardiac Arrest, not a cocaine overdose although what triggered the attack was inconclusive. Within a month the greatest DJ's and MC's in the Jungle game gathered to honor Stevie in a way only they know how, you can see the flyer here.

Rest in Peace Stevie
