Major Ace, born Luke Monero, was a founding member of Pay As U Go Cartel. The uk collective helped launch the careers of a number of well-known uk artists, including Wiley and DJ Target among others.

In 2002, the group reached number 13 in the uk charts for his single "Champagne Dance."

After his death, Wiley spoke to the BBC's Newsbeat to offer their respects to their friend.

"The main Ace means a lot to me and he will always be missed," he said. "He got the credit he deserved. Major Ace was Wiley before Wiley."

A number of notable uk artists took to social networks to pay their own tributes to Big Ace.
