Reports were first seen on Twitter when Medhi’s friend DJ Cut Killer tweeted in french “DJ Medhi! there are no words to tell you the pain I feel…rest in peace brother . “Close friend and colleague Drake and Chromeo followed, tweeting, “Damn…RIP MEHDI,” and “We lost our brother. No words,” respectively as stated by the Huffington Post.

He’s collaborated with Carole King, Daft Punk, Cassius, and created a single “I am Somebody” featuring Chromeo which you can view below.
