The music world lost another great as legendary composer and producer, David Axelrod died. He was 83.

Now only was the creator most known for his own work as the in-house producer for Capital Records, (with albums under his name like Cannonball Adderley, the Electric Prunes and Lou Rawls,) but David went on to be sampled hundreds of times by hip-hop producers like DJ Shadow, Wu-Tang Clan, DJ Premier, Madlib and Lil Wayne.

And we're sure that tradition will continue. R.I.P.
