R.I.P. Party Arty of D.I.T.C.

DJ Premier email:
I want to send out my condolences to the family of Party Arty of the world famous D.I.T.C. (Diggin' In The Crates Crew and of GG (aka Get Dirty)

He passed away this afternoon (Dec. 4) around 1:30pm due to healt complications...

His hardcore lyrics have been ringing out in the streets from Showbiz & AG, Lord Finesse, OC, and their own group GD which consists of rhyme partner D-Flow...

He also appeared on the joint I produced called "Weed Scented" which featured Guru of Gang Starr and OC on AG's first solo LP...He appears on the new D.I.T.C. Records compilation which is in stores now called "The Movement"

...He caught the attention of 50 Cent altough the deal never went thru but his talent was recognized by true heads of the rap shit for his hyped up insane style on records and on stage preformance...

This also marks the 1 year anniversary of UGH member Pimp C who passed away this same day last year...We love you and will miss you both... R.I.P. Arty... DJ Premier
