Blogoncherry.com – Every hip-hop fan should know about who Chris Lighty is. He is a longtime manager who ever  worked for 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Mariah Carey, and many other musicians.

Bad news broke yesterday, Thursday (Aug 30), when his dead body was found on his Bronx apartment’s patio with a 9 mm pistol near to his body with a pool of his blood.

Police officers at the scene said he committed suicide. Based on the statement of eyewitnesses, before the accident happened, they heared Chris and his wife, Veronica, argued one to another in his South Riverside home at 11.30 a.m. in that time. After that, Chris reportedly walked away and a few moment later, he shot his head.

The rumors said that the successful hip-hop manager was struggling for his debts. Too many debts that forced him to sell his Manhattan apartment for $ 5,6 million last October. It could be the trigger of the family fight.

Apart from the debts, as seen on Chris’blog, it seems he frustrated to see the growth of hip-hop scene. He wrote his disappointment in a statements posted on his blog.

Here is some of Chris’ writings on his blog several days before the suicidal accident.

“BUSY TRYING TO STAY AHEAD OF THE RAT RACE WE CALL HIP HOP.”

“Chaos and mayhem . . . hip hop”

“YOU HAVE SEEN THE SENSELESS LOSSES THAT WE HAVE HAD IN HIP HOP … THE CHAOS AND MAYHEM WILL DESTROY HIP HOP.”

From the post, Chris obviously already sick of hip-hop world, and he found nothing after working on it for a long time. All that he found and felt were chaos and mayhem.

As this shocking news spread very fast, some of people inside hip-hop music industry took their Twitter account to show their sympathy. Sean “Diddy” Combs, Rihanna, Fat Joe, and Nick Cannon are among hip hop musicians that send their deepest condolences.

R.I.P Chris Lighty, hip-hop world will miss you!
