    Butler was speeding in a Range Rover at 2 AM on Ventura Blvd. in Studio City. He drove off the road, hit three parking meters and a concrete wall. The vehicle then flipped over twice. Butler and his wife, an r&b singer who had signed with Epic Records, were killed. There is an old expression, "Speed kills." It does indeed.

    Rapper and record producer Lovebug Starski -- his real name was Kevin Smith -- is credited with coining the term "hip-hop." Personally, I think he stole the word from Here Comes Peter Cottontail.
