“It is with heaviness in our hearts today that we confirm the passing of Nicky Da B.  Nicky was a beautiful soul and we will always be grateful for his magnetic personality and loving spirit.

Diplo also paid his condolences via Twitter and reveals that the two were in fact working on an album together for Mad Decent.
