: MediaTakeOut.com just received word that Kevin Gilliam, better know as Battlecat - one of the most PROLIFIC HIP HOP PRODUCERS in history suffered a MASSIVE heart attack yesterday.

Kevin is well known for producing artists such as Snoop Dogg, The Game, Xzibit and Tha Eastsidaz along with a number of other West Coast rappers. His aesthetic is a progression from the early-'90s G-Funk sound pioneered by Above the Law, characterized by fat synth bass lines and soulful keys.

Let's all say a prayer for him, we're told his condition is VERY serious.
