RIP Theodore Beard IV of Damaged Good$

It was with great sadness that Big Dada learnt of the death on Friday of Theodore Beard IV aka Trak Bully of Damaged Good$. Ted was killed after his car hit the back of a truck in Oklahoma. He was just 28 years old and travelling to attend his young son's first soccer game. 

From the time we spent with Ted during his trips to London with rapping partner Chris Clark aka Cool Dundee to record with producer Xrabit, we know his family and friends have lost a bright, kind, beautiful man. A very talented rapper (and by all accounts an excellent basketball player), more than anything we remember his relentless positivity, both a product of his faith and something deeper within him, a sunniness of temperament that warmed all those around him. He will be missed.
