KPFT is saddened to share word on the untimely death of former KPFT DJ Zin.
Zin, also known as Anthony Mills, and a passenger were killed Sunday afternoon in an automobile accident that injured five others.
As host of the KPFT program Sound of Soul (SOS) Radio, Zin was a veteran station DJ. Longtime listeners will remember Zin from his work with Matt Sonzala on the pioneering Houston hip-hop program Damage Control over 10 years ago. He eventually launched SOS Radio in overnights, then moved to an afternoon slot.
Zin was also an accomplished performer. As a spoken-word artist and rapper, he released several CDs and collaborated with many of Houston’s most notable artists. He was 42 years old.“ `
