  1. AAAAAAW DAMN!…IT NEVER FAILS, TOWARDS THE END OF THE YEAR, CELEBRITIES BE DROPPING LIKE FLIES!…R I P! FAVORITE SONG "LOVE CHANGES" WITH KASHIF AND MELISSA!

  2. Sad to hear this, thought he was a cool, talented dude who'd overcome a lot in life. Rest In Power.

  3. :(( RIP About to listen to "So fine" and "Love Come Down" right now. The old heads know how to do that R&B right!

  4. Thank YOU!!!!…I'm damn sure one of them. I remember vividly cleaning my room & vacuuming th house bang "So Fine" all through the house. I have most if not all HIS albums on vinyl. Without Kashif & Nile Rodgers good RB music wouldn't have existed in the 80's & 90's.

  5. Something not right about this dudes death. Kashif was outspoken and he wrote a book that i was told executives in the music industry did n't like. That book was full of legal advice to recording artist how not to allow those Joos to play you out of your money. Kashif was not one for playing word games. He told it like it is. He will be greatly missed. But just like Sam Cooke, MJ, Vesta, Pimp C…..i sense foul play in his death. Why won't they release the cause of death?
