Earlier today, Papoose dropped a track, “Obituary 2012,” which mourns many of the lost lives in the music industry from last year.
The song includes remembrances of singer Whitney Houston and “Soul Train” creator Don Cornelius. The song also mentions Chris Lighty, head of Violator Management, who reportedly committed suicide last year.
In the song, Papoose reveals that doesn’t believe that Lighty’s cause of death was suicide:
“Chris Lighty, Hip Hop shed a tear / He gave birth to so many careers / Born May 8th, ’68, in the Bronx, used to carry records for Red Alert, he was smart / Started Violator, made it better / He helped me with my career, we took a million dollar deal together / The cause of his death? They say suicide / But anybody who knows Chris sees through the lies.”
