Rashad Harden, better known as DJ Rashad, died earlier this year after overdosing on a mix of heroin, cocaine and Xanax, toxicology results have confirmed.

As previously reported, Harden was found dead in a Chicago apartment in April. Police stated that they suspect a drug overdose was the cause, having found drugs and drug paraphernalia near the body, though a cousin of the producer later claimed that complications relating to a blood clot in his leg was the cause.

An autopsy in the days after Harden’s death proved inconclusive, meaning that medical examiners had to wait for the toxicology results to be returned. Last week they confirmed that it had been a drug-related death.
