Co founder of Violator Management Chris Lighty was reported today to have committed suicide from a self inflicted gunshot in his Bronx, NY home. This is truly sad news to many including myself. His impact is felt and respected throughout from his peers, artists and people like myself who knew of his inspiring journey though music and wished to have just a fraction of his success. My condolences go out to his family and friends and may he rest in peace.
