Former Cash Money Artist Stone Passes Away In Louisiana Prison

Cash Money Degreez's Stone passed away due to natural causes in a Louisiana prison.

Former Cash Money Records signee Alvin "Stone" Nelson has passed away while in a Louisiana Prison.

The rapper, who was part of Cash Money Degreez and in the duo D-Boyz with partner-in-rhyme Lac, reportedly died of natural causes. The news broke on and confirmed by several associates who took to Twitter to express their grief.

Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Stone got his feet wet in the game while managing an artist for Soulja Slim before trying his hand at rapping. Throughout his career, he worked with artists ranging from Lil Wayne and Juvenile to T.I. and Mac 10, co-writing Big Tymers' hit "Still Fly."

After leaving Cash Money Records, Stone and Lac founded D-Boyz Entertainment in 2004, later signing a deal with 404 Music, Inc. and releasing Life of a D-Boy in 2009. Wayne appeared on the offering's first single "It's Your Money."

Stone and Lac spoke with HipHopDX in May 2008, with the former explaining how the two penned "Still Fly." "We just had to come up with different slang, all the things that would be hood rich," he said. "And we laughing about 'em cause the shit was funny, but at the same time everything was real."

HipHopDX sends its condolensces to Stone's family during this difficult time.

    YMCMB soldiers are the realest around. Birdman got a bunch of stone cold killas out here on the streets. Stone will be missed, but never forgotten. Birdman's taken care of the family already so they're set. Stone was a casualty of war, but Birdman's got more. He run these streets, and I'm his accountant.

      You do know Stone left Cash Money in '04 and joined UTP for a while, right? Still, at least YOU have a good head on your shoulders-unlike a certain "YESSIR" who'd probably say he had it coming for leaving Cash Money.
