CLOSE

Famed L.A. DJ, DJ Hideo, passed away Saturday at Mission Hospital in Orange, County.

The Hip-Hop DJ who opened for Coolio and Xzibit in past years succumbed to a yearlong battle with colon-liver cancer.

The mixer kept fans updated on his condition through his DJHideo.com blog posting pictures of himself in the hospital and preparing for chemotherapy.

He posted entries to fans on his progress even up to the day of his passing telling them,

Hi everyone!..Wanted to let everybody know that I check in back @ Mission hospital last week because of the weakness that I’ve been feeling for the past week. My vitals are stable and now need the assistance of a ventilator to breathe. I’m very aware of my condition and communicate in writing.

Right now, the one thing I really do miss is drinking a nice ice cold soda.”

He passed away just hours later.

His close friend DJ K-Sly says the DJ was in severe pain and told doctors not to resuscitate him if they noticed him slipping away.

He was 42-years-old.
