Twitter is reporting that former No Limit rapper Mr. Magic passed away in a car accident. I’m still waiting for something solid, but this seems to be true.
I’m from Louisiana; this hurts me.
From what I can gather, he, his wife, and daughter were involved in a fatal car accident in Mississippi last night. The daughter is said to be critical at this point. I’ll have more details as they become available.
Many have taken to Twitter to morn the rapper who made his No Limit debut in 1998 with Sky’s The Limit but left the label after 5 years, releasing two more albums in the process. He then joined with Roy Jones Jr. & fellow New Orleans rapper and No Limit member Choppa to form Body Head Bangerz and put out one album, Body Head Bangerz Vol. 1 in 2004. His most noted appearances came on C-Murder’s “Down With My Niggas” and Jones Jr.’s “I Smoke, I Drank” remix featuring YoungBloodz.
