I'm not the one to eulogize DJ PRZM—I never met the acclaimed Columbus DJ and producer, and local hip-hop is not my specialty—but just from the number of times I've seen his name over the years, the scope of his influence is not lost on me. PRZM died yesterday from complications from a heart ailment that had plagued him all his life.

Wes Flexner posted a quick rememberance of PRZM at donewaiting yesterday, and friends have been posting memories at omnimix and the Weightless boards (you need to register to access Weightless). PRMZ's MySpace is also filling up with dedications.

One thing I do know: After Daymon Dodson's untimely passing last year, this is another rough blow for Columbus hip-hop.
