50 Cent Reportedly Hires Investigators To Look Into Chris Lighty's Death

At the request of Chris Lighty's mother, 50 Cent has reportedly hired investigators to look into Lighty's death, which was originally ruled a suicide by medical examiners.

According to reports, 50 Cent has hired a team of investigators to look into Chris Lighty's death. Lighty passed away in August of this year in what was ruled a suicide by medical examiners. However, Fox 5 in New York is reporting that 50 Cent hired a team to investigate the matter further, at the request of Lighty's mother. 

50 Cent was one of Lighty's many clients. Upon hearing that Lighty was dead, 50 shared his feelings, as we reported.

"Chris has been an important part of my business and personal growth for a decade," 50 explained. "He was a good friend and advisor who helped me develop as an artist and businessman. My prayers are with his family. He will be greatly missed." 

Chris' brother, Dave Lighty, also reacted to the news publicly, sharing that he did not believe he committed suicide. 

"I want the truth to come out. This isn’t my brother. My brother was a strong person…nothing is adding up. I can’t get a direct answer from anybody…I understand there’s a process to be followed. I can’t even get clear answers from people I think I should be getting clear answers from," he shared.

Fox 5's report can be seen below:

    "Did YOU know Chris personally" Did you? Obviously, neither did 50 or else maybe Lighty would still be alive today. That's the point, retard. People who kill themselves don't leave notes or tell a bunch of their friends prior to doing it. Cause then what would be the point? If Lighty had wanted help he would have gotten it. Are you still confused???

    "I read the comments, you bring NOTHING to the masses with that nonsense you swear is the end all information to life's existence. And when people check you, you talk smack and hide" Hide? lol It's the internet, bitch. If you want to post your address I'd be more than happy to come and say any of this to your face. And Schwarz? lol That little cyber militant has only made himself look desperate each time he's searched for something I've posted. Clearly, I get under his skin, and even more clearly, your's. I was giving my take just like everyone else. If you don't like it, eat a dick.

    Suggestion: 5O, why don't you kill yourself, I promise no one will investigate...

    Mr. Lighty was definitely a threat to some powerful person or people who thought enough of Lighty to kill him. I thought it was very odd that law enforcement and media outlets were very quick to rule his death a suicide even without extensive investigation, considering the fact that he wasn't your average suicide victim. He has never been on anti-depressents, never had history with drug or alcohol abuse and was very successful at what he did. Of course he made some bad moves and ended up owing the IRS millions but anyone who is a hustler or businessman knows that risk is just a part of the game. Suicide just doesn't add up to me and I've never even met the guy.

      Of course he made some bad moves and ended up owing the IRS millions RIGHT THERE! That's why you kill yourself. Owing the IRS means FEDERAL jail time. That shit isn't meant to be taken lightly. That's enough for people to kill themself. People can have the questions and having someone investigate further isn't wrong, but to think that this has happened before is ignorant because it has

    smh 50 I thought u knew better. The illuminati killed Chris Litey, he was gonna expose them in his book and talk about the gay hip hop mafia. He was gonna expose all the faggots in hip-hop including 50 cent and g-unit. He already knew Frank's Ocean was gay before he actually came out cuz Frank's didn't wanna be exposed by anyone else so he came out first. A lot of more ppl were gonna come out until Chris was gunned down by the elite, now hip hop is back to closeted rappers. RIP Chris Litey

    OFFICER FIFTYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To this day this man still is saying gangster stuff in his raps..But he's calling in the investigators to find a murderer and snitch on him? He snitched in his songs, he told on Ja Rule and Murder inc when they stabbed him...There is nothing real about this dude. Yet you want to keep talking about Rick Ross...Give me some proof Rick Ross snitched...Cause I see plenty of proof that officer fifty is a rat.

      Snitching is when two criminals participate in criminal activity and when one gets caught. He tell on his partner and who ever else is involved. That's a snitch. When a law abiding citizen call the police, that's not snitching. NO one said Ross was a snitch. We all no he is a fraud because he raps about a life he didn't live. If I locked you in 50 Cent in a room, Im a put my money on 50 walking out! Period you Pussy!

      Rick Ross was a Correction Officer for a few months. That's the equivalent of being a snitch, in my mind at least. This whole snitching thing is ridiculous. Cam'ron is an idiot. If you shoot me then your getting ratted the fuck out. I honestly believe that not snitching is more gangsta anyways. People are against snitching out of fear and you can't deny it. If you get stabbed or shot or anything, what drives you to keep the perpetrator's name to yourself.

      It's because of comments LIKE THIS why we should definitely not be cutting education budgets.... A brain is a terrible thing to waste... Dude has to be like 18 or under because he doesn't even have a BASIC understanding of how shit works and if he's older than 18.. good damn ...

      Young dumb, young ass nigga. And yes I can tell you're young from just how stupid your post is. Smh what a fucking idiot. This ain't no street shit. His man was murdered and it's on file that he killed himself and no one believes that. He's hiring niggas to find out the truth and if they find out and arrest dude.. THAT'S NOT SNITCHING DUMB FUCKER. Snitching is if you and I do a crime... and I get caught.. then I tell on YOU. THAT'S SNITCHING. Don't get it twisted..

    legitimate businessmen don't hire gangsters to do their investigations.

    you dumb primitive thinking backward fools. 50 cent hires a bunch of high powered investigator so now he's a snitch. For fucks sake if he dealt with gangsters and drug dealers his whole life he wouldn't be sucessful. Can't be a gangster and ''live by the code'' unless you think its okay killing innocent people. Fucking retards

    "a homeless man who lives under a bridge dont suicide how come a big famous manager does? doesnt add up" Homeless people are basically dead to society anyway, and are found dead all the time. It just doesn't make the news. Anyway, obviously, there was something really off with Lighty, and that's where IMO 50 should just leave well enough alone. Alot of people choose suicide because then they don't have to give a reason why. If they planned on giving an explanation, they probably wouldn't have killed themselves in the first place.

      We went through this already. How do YOU know Chris was off? Did YOU know Chris personally to where you're internet opinion matters more than Chris' MOM and someone like 50, who actually had a working relationship with him? Every time you comment I can see the bitch in you. I read the comments, you bring NOTHING to the masses with that nonsense you swear is the end all information to life's existence. And when people check you, you talk smack and hide. Schwarz has eaten you alive in these comment threads and others have simply told you to stfu because they see your condescending ways.

  • dj nemesis

    respect to 50....the media brainwashes people into thinkin all these people are vulnerable to suicide...bullshit...a homeless man who lives under a bridge dont suicide how come a big famous manager does? doesnt add up

      You cant generalize things like this, people get depressed and react to it differently. I seen a woman jump off the Howard Franklin bridge once down here in tampa bout 6 years ago, with my own eyes cause we were stuck in traffic while they tried to talk her down. Afterwords found out she was working as a dentist in the paper, so obviously money wasn't the issue. Probably got cheated on or something, People get depressed and make drastic decisions all the time. Chris Lighty was in his 40's, lost his wife and was going through financial difficulties, its not ridiculous to think he might have taken that route, people have done it for alot less. Even so, I'm glad there investigating it further, nothing wrong with making sure before you come to a decision
