Read the Future heart-breaking Tribute To the Late Sound Engineer Seth Firkins

Many Hip Hop figures pay their respects.

Seth Firkins, a sound engineer who had been working with the rappers in the Atlanta scene for years, died in his sleep on September 23.

Firkins was especially close to Future, and had worked as an engineer in the rapper's 2012 Pluto 3D album. Some other major credits include American Gangster by JAY-Z and The Appeal: Georgia's Most wanted by Gucci Mane. He also worked with Young Thug, Rihanna, Ciara and Trina.

Future shared a heartwarming response on social media, writing a lengthy Instagram caption to celebrate the life of his friend.

"I always gave racism a cold shoulder because my brother Is a white man by the name of Seth Firkins," he wrote. "I got a call saying u died in your dream? The first thing that came to my mind is, why do you sleep at 5 in the morning? When we started to record our best fuck and I tell u 'not' falling asleep we have more work to do.. but something told me that I should have been home recording for some reason."

"I was saying this in my head, bad news beat me home!

There is No cap in my game kid, the rest of my brother. Rest well."
