At age 44, Chris Lighty, was found dead outside of his Bronx apartment. The founder and chief of Violator Management, who is known for building up such artists like 50 cents, Busta Rhymes, Q-Tips and worked with Diddy, Ja Rule and Mariah Carey, was found faced up on his balcony after shooting himself in the head. The situation occurred after a dispute with his wife who had filed for a divorced last year. It was reported that after the argument Chris Lighty stepped outside and committed suicide on the balcony.
I must say, I didn’t know much about Chris Lighty, but once I hear information about anyone it makes me want to look up more information on that person and see what will be the legacy they will leave behind. What I found out is without Chris Lighty, we may not have know many of the artist we love and are icons today. It’s sad to hear, that he took his own life when you could see throughout social medias, twitter specifically, that he was personally loved by many.
Chris Lighty, you had so many more to teach in this world…
