Quinn Coleman, DJ, A&R Exec and Son of Former BET Chief Debra Lee, Dies at 31

According to a statement from a rep for Lee: “Quinn was a loving son, brother, cousin and friend, a passionate DJ and A&R executive with a bright future ahead of him.

Coleman worked as a DJ under the name Spiccoli (presumably from the character in “Fast Time at Ridgmont High”) and, since May 2018, as an A&R executive at Capitol Records where he signed the group Brasstracks, among other acts.

Prior to his senior director position at Capitol, he spent four years at Warner Bros. Records as an A&R manager and a marketing coordinator.

“Quinn’s positivity and passion was infectious, he made everyone around him feel good and always felt more than a friend than A&R,” the group Brasstracks wrote on social media, adding that they’re dedicating their debut album, out August 21, to Coleman.

Capitol Records president Jeff Vaughn said: “We are all devastated to learn of the untimely passing of our colleague and friend, Quinn Coleman.

We offer our deepest condolences to Quinn’s family and loved ones at this extremely difficult time.”
