Turn it up for me Lil Durk announced Josh’s death in a tweet on Monday (May 31). Winners Circle Entertainment signed the multi-platinum producer and engineer, who collaborated with Durk and a slew of other rappers.
Durk tweeted, “Rip turn me up josh smh.”
Winners Circle Entertainment has yet to issue an official statement confirming Turn Me Up Josh’s death as of this writing. Several fans, friends, and past partners have expressed their thoughts on Twitter and Instagram, despite the fact that information surrounding the producer’s terrible demise are limited.
On Monday, Sonny Digital, Dougie On the Beat, Booka 600, and London Jae were among the artists that expressed their sympathies.
On his Instagram Story, Lil Durk also posted several photos of himself with Turn Me Up Josh. Monday also marks the seven-year anniversary of his cousin, OTF Nuski’s, death. “Nuski gang,” the Chicago native stated in another tweet.
Turn Me Up Josh was substantially involved in Durk’s The Voice (Deluxe) edition creation. He has worked with artists such as Drake, Migos, Nipsey Hussle, DaBaby, Megan Thee Stallion, Kehlani, and others, and has several big production credits in hip hop.
After producing Migos’ breakout single, “Versace,” the Houston native catapulted to notoriety. He also engineered Metro Boomin’s “10 Freaky Girls” and was nominated for a Grammy for his work on Drake and Durk’s smash hit “Laugh Now Cry Later.”
Turn Me Up Josh is also slated to serve as a producer on Durk and Lil Baby’s upcoming joint effort, Voice of the Heroes, which is set to drop next month, according to HipHopDX. Turn Me Up Josh was also said to be working with Gunna as a result of his recent success.
At this time, we at REVOLT extend our heartfelt sympathies to Turn Me Up Josh’s family, friends, and fans. Below is Lil Durk’s tweet on his death.
