In September of 2012, beloved Bay Area hip-hop DJ Mathew Africa passed away in a tragic car accident. While he will always be remembered for his influential DJ career, which began with a show at Berkeley radio station KALX, Africa was a renowned crate-digger. And Good Records has just announced that his family is beginning to auction off his incredible record collection.
