The hip-hop community is mourning the loss of Chicago house music deejay, DJ Rashad. 

On Twitter, Chance the Rapper wrote that he considered Rashad a friend and that "music lost a legend."  He also said "Love you DJ Rashad." 

Detroit emcee Danny Brown echoed Chance's words and also sent his prayers out to "everyone saddened by this tragedy." 

Rappers 2 Chainz and Jay Electronica are also among those who remembered DJ Rashad.  

DJ Rashad -- born Rashad Harden -- was found in his Chicago-area home on Saturday afternoon.  Drug paraphernalia found at the scene indicated that he may have died from a drug overdose. 

Rashad is credited as a pioneer of the footwork dance style often used in dance battles.
