Chris Lighty Dies AT 44

Hip hop executive Chris Lighty was found dead at his South Riverdale apartment at around 11:30 am this morning. There was a gun found next to him, and the cause of his death is reported as a self-inflicting gun wound to the head. Law enforcement sources said Lighty, who divorced his wife Veronica last year, may have been dealing with financial struggles, including owing about $5 million to the IRS. Lighty founded Violator Management in 1989 and helped artist such as Busta Rhymes, Mariah Carey, 50 Cent and many more get their career started. R.I.P.
