February 17, 2000 Dream was murdered in Oakland, shot by person(s) unknown.
Our love goes out to the TDK, KTD, QMC, TFP, TMC, and FC crews and to the rest of Dream's family and friends.
Dream was one of the most well-respected old-school Oakland kings, a teacher and friend to many writers worldwide. He will be missed forever.
