He’s a man with a hip hop pedigree, a DJ since the early ’90s, a British ex-pat living in New York who worked his way up to an album deal with then-cutting edge Elektra Records, for the underrated Here Comes The Fuzz. He’s the kind of guy who signs remarkable rap talent like Wale and Rhymefest to his own label, Allido, while producing for the likes of Lily Allen and Robbie Williams. He’s also the first person (that we know of) to officially remix Bob Dylan (we heard even the Rambling Man himself gave praise). And he still finds time to drop chart-topping albums like 2007’s The Version and working on a forthcoming album that he’s said is his best yet, The Business.

Newcleus co-founder, writer, rapper, singer, keyboardist and bass player Robert Crafton III p/k/a Chilly B has passed away due to complications from a massive stroke. The stroke had left him brain dead and in a coma. On Tuesday, February 23rd the decision was made to remove him from life support and he passed on not long after.
Chilly B’s signature moments were his classic verse from “Jam On It”, his funky bass guitar licks from “Jam On Revenge (The Wikki Wikki Song)”, and his booming deep vocal and sizzling synthesizer solo from “Computer Age (Push The Button)”. In recent years he was involved in independent production, including working on a new Newcleus album, and touring with Newcleus.
