RIP Chris Lighty

One of the most influential men in hip-hop took his own life yesterday, Chris Lighty. As the man behind Violator entertainment, he helped make 50 Cent the mega-star he is today and also had a pivotal role in the work of LL Cool J, Jay-Z, De la Soul, Warren G and plenty more. This rather brilliant article on Complex sums up his industry shaking manoeuvres, including going head to head with Suge Knight.

“Dutch filmmaker, journalist and rap fanatic Bram Van Splunteren stepped into the city for one intense week in 1986. He was armed with five things: a camera crew, a map, a deep respect for the hip-hop artform, a list of phone numbers, and a burning desire to get to the bottom of what this still-growing subculture was all about. By the time he left, he had the answers he needed, along with a treasure trove of golden video footage. Tragically, these images never returned from Europe, languishing in obscurity from hip-hop’s homeland for more than a quarter-century. Until now.”

This looks SUPER hot!
