I am just hearing about the death of the #1 Hip Hop manager Chris Lighty.  Chris Lighty unfortuneately commited suicide Thursday morning August 30, 2012 after an argument with his former wife.  Police said that he put a gun to his head and shot himself. 

Lighly 44, is one of the most well know, respected and successful Hip Hop managers who has worked with the likes of 50 cent, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Mobb Deep, LL Cool J and Nas.  Just to name a few.  News of is suicide is a complete shock and source of utter sadness for the entire Hip Hop community.  His suicide took place inside a South Riverdale apartment after a fight that he had with his ex-wife Veronica, whom he divorce a year ago. Sources say he may have been dealing with financial struggles which includes owing about $5 million to the IRS.
