Respected DJ Omega Supreme of Organized Konfusion fame died this past Wednesday after a long bout with cancer. The DJ's death came as a shock to his close friends and family, many of whom reportedly believed his illness was in remission.

"It was a total shock to me. The last time I saw him he looked like he had beat the cancer," said fellow Organized Konfusion rapper Prince Po.

Po remembers his DJ, who fought cancer for years, as a devoted and loyal friend. "He was the best supporter I ever had," the rapper said. "He was never the type to try and be out front of the show, but ever since I've known him, from high school on, he would come to all my basketball games, my shows, always happy to be there for me. He was a true friend."

In addition to working with Organized, Omega Supreme, born Andre Kyles, worked with several record labels, including Warner Brothers and Sony, and managed artists, including Brooklyn rap group Da Bush Babees.

"He tried to bring talented and thirsty horses to water," remembered Po. "Dre was always trying to help every one of us."
