Legendary breakdancer Adolfo “Shabba Doo” Quiñones, who starred in the 1984 movie “Breakin'” and the sequel, “Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo,” has reportedly passed away at 65.

Quiñones was also a member of the dance group “The Original Lockers,” who pioneered the dance move “Locking” along with members Fred “Rerun” Berry, Don “Campbellock” Campbell, and Toni Basil. Quiñones worked with various A-list artists, including Madonna, Lionel Richie, and Luther Vandross. He also choreographed Three 6 Mafia’s performance at the 78th Academy Awards, where the group won an Oscar for best original song for their track “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp” from the movie “Hustle & Flow” starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard.

TMZ spoke to law enforcement sources, who say it appears that a roommate found Shabba unconscious Wednesday night, but no foul play is suspected. His last Instagram post featured him in bed along with a message about recovering from a cold, and he assured that he tested negative for COVID-19. You can read the post above.
