K-Ruger Dies Unexpectedly

Def Jam / Str8Lace Records artist K-Ruger died September 19th. Further details were undisclosed at press time.

Str8Lace President Demetrius Peterson stated that the rapper’s death was sudden and unexpected.

K-Ruger jumped into the limelight when he became the first artist signed by Jay-Z in his role as Def Jam’s president.

Shortly before his death, the rapper was excited during conversations with distributors about the release of his upcoming album.

Ironically, he had commented on how so many hip-hop artists have died and, yet, were not truly appreciated until they were gone.
