Multi-platinum producer D. Hill has sadly passed away at the age of 25.
The sad news was announced by producer Mojo Krazy and later confirmed by Hill’s grandmother through a Facebook post. “Y’all please pray for my family,” she wrote. “My sweet grandson Darius Hill has passed away .. Continue to Pray for his Family and Friends as we all go through the day ahead.”
Details surrounding his passing are scarce, however, several people have taken to social media to send their condolences and pay tribute to Hill. During a concert in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday night (Oct. 14), Playboy Carti shared the message “RIP D. Hill” on stage.
Producer Sonny Digital wrote, “Damn my brother. Love 4L” under Hill’s most recent Instagram post.
Hill began producing in 2017 and is best known for co-producing Future and Drake’s multi-platinum hit “Life Is Good,” as well as their collaboration “Desires.” He also produced several songs on Lil Uzi Vert and Future collaboration project Pluto x Baby Pluto, including “Over Your Head,” “I Don’t Wanna Break Up” and “Sleeping On the Floor.”
“I’ve been making beats since I was about 12 or 13, but I didn’t start taking it seriously until 2017,” he previously told Complex. “I started coming to Atlanta to get more connected with artists and build relationships. My earlier work started with Kollision. He’s a QC [Quality Control] artist. Me and him went crazy. Then I got some stuff with Gucci Mane’s artists. That’s about it as far as my earlier work.”
Hill also spoke about how he connected with Future and Drake. “I was really just working. It’s kind of impossible to get to the big artists, so you really have to work,” he told the outlet. “First, it’s about working with people who appreciate your sound. My sound is kind of unorthodox, so I had a hard time finding people who would know what to do with my beats. There’s a guy named Guap Tarantino and he’s a Freebandz artist. After working with him and staying consistent with him, everything else started to unfold.”
The REVOLT team would like to send our thoughts and prayers to D. Hill’s family and friends. May he rest in peace.
