AceShowbiz - One of Cardi B's go-to producers has died following a shooting incident in Los Angeles on Friday, June 14.
DJ Official, real name Leslie Andre Wakefield, Jr, won a Grammy earlier this year for his work on the rapper's "Invasion of Privacy" album.
According to reports he and another man were shot as they sat in a car. The hitmaker was pronounced dead at the scene, while his friend is fighting for his life in the hospital.

DJ Official became a father in March, shortly after his big Grammy win.
Paying tribute to the hitmaker on social media, singer Ty Dolla $ign shared a photo of himself with Official and wrote, "How the f**k they gon' take @prodbyofficial? Who the f**k was mad at my bro?"
