Many of his peers have been extending their condolences to Dixon's family and close friends, with Meek Mill, Dave East and Fabolous all speaking out about the young man's passing. Many people were waiting to see what Erica Mena would say, considering how close the two were a short time ago.

"We all deal with so much," wrote the Love & Hip-Hop star. "You dealt with a lot. I'm so sorry this happened, you didn't deserve this. Rest in forever peace. Watch over your blood sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews and your mommy. I know they are so broken right now."

Judging from the sheer volume of eulogies pouring in online, you can tell that Dixon affected so many souls in a positive manner. Many in the entertainment and sports industries were close with Cliff, having watched him play basketball on a professional level. We send our condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Cliff.
