R.I.P. DJ Lace
As you may have heard, gospel hip hop's DJ Lace, aka Lawrence Stroman, went to be with the Lord late last week. The cause of death, originally reported as a heart attack, is uncertain.
His "homegoing" services will be held in Lithonia, GA tomorrow (April 20) and he will be honored in a variety of ways by a slew of affiliated DJ's in Atlanta this week for any of the Holy Hip Hop Awards, Dove Awards, and City Takers events.
Lace was the CEO and founder of New World Music and one of the founders of the Higher Ground Record Pool. Although Atlanta was his home, DJ Lace's roots can be traced back to Bronx, New York where he spun in the 70's under the name DJ Larry D.
He is survived by his wife Keshia, three children, his mother and father.
Official memorial information can be found online at djlacehomegoing.wordpress.com.
DJ Lace will most definitely be missed.
