Platinum songwriter, Lashawn Daniels, known by many as Big Shiz, died in car crash early this morning at the age of 41. While many may not be familiar with his name outside of the industry, he has worked with everyone from Destiny's Child, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Brandy, and many more.

Recently, he was also a cast member on the hit show, Tamar and Vince, as they were close friends. Lashawn was also married to April Daniels, who's also a name within the industry. They share three boys and this is truly a major loss to the industry, as he was music partners with Rodney Jerkins and has several platinum plaques on the wall from some of the great work he has done.
