Toronto rapper & Hip Hop Series continues with a #FridayFlashback to August 1st 2015 when Shane Redway died early Saturday morning after he was involved in a fatal car accident that killed all three passengers inside. A rising star in the city of Drake, fans and artists poured their love for the artist on social media and at events such as Manifesto 2015 below.

The Hollywood Reporter stated Redway was traveling in a vehicle with three others around 4 a.m. local time on Saturday. The car was traveling on Highway 427 and headed onto a northbound ramp for the 401 westbound track where it skidded off the road and hit the right guardrail. The impact of the accident was so severe that the car exploded into flames.

The Toronto Star had also reported:

“The vehicle burst into flames after the crash and witnesses rushed to the scene in an attempt to rescue the three people trapped inside. They got one out, the OPP said, and performed CPR on the woman until paramedics arrived.

The two people trapped inside the vehicle were pronounced dead on the scene, while the woman was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries, where she later died.

Police haven’t confirmed the identities of victims, but believe the two people trapped inside the car were a male driver and female passenger. OPP Sgt. Kerry Schmidt said confirming the identities has been challenging because the bodies are badly burnt”.

Redway’s Champ Management team confirmed the death to the Star and issued a brief statement.

“Redway was known for being a passionate artist who was always striving for greatness, pushing the boundaries of always believing in your visions & dreams which led to the creation of the BLVD (The Belief Leading Visions & Dreams),” Champ Managment wrote in the email statement.

Fellow Toronto rappers Drake and Kardinal Offishall expressed shared thoughts over the passing of the rising young artists. They join several others in tributes and other displays of kind words and well wishes to the family.
