Wari and I shared many mutual friends. I can’t claim to be in this top tier of peoples, but we always chopped it up deep about beats and music samples when we happened into each other in the Mid city districts of Los Angeles. Wari was a meticulous beat maker and sample connoisseur. It took him a minute to warm up to me, but he finally let me listen to some tracks once in a while.

Taken much to early, he will be missed by many underground Angelinos.
