Heard about this earlier. Horrible news. Huge loss for the hip-hop community in Quebec.

I never met the guy, but we knew some mutual people and from everything I've heard he was a real stand up guy, and a truly original artist...

Piper with the blackface at Wrestlemania. So controversial.

This is truly a tragedy for the Montreal Hip-Hop scene. The Hip-Hop scene is in pretty bad shape here because there's no originality - or so little- coming out of Montreal. Bad News Brown was one of those original artists who was able to get recognition for his craft. For that he will be sorely missed. He really was a stand-up guy as well. I had the chance of meeting him once or twice and I have nothing but good things to say about him.

R.I.P.

R.I.P Bad News Brown

This is a huge loss to not only the hip hop scene in Montreal but the whole music scene in general, Bad News Brown was easily one of the most talented artists representing this city. He was a unique talent who I truly thought would be making noise for the city for a long time to come.

The first hip hop show I saw was Talib Kweli at the Medley in '03, Bad News opened the show and he absolutely KILLED IT. He could spit and his harmonica skills were simply incredible. Seeing such a great talent from this city lose their life in such a terrible way is truly devistating, my prayers go out to his family especially his daughter.

I'm not a big fan of hip hop, but this summer during the F1 festivities, he was there doing a show. I was stunned by his talent, I really liked it.

RIP.

Maybe OP should mentioned he was murdered. That's totally different from dying of an accident, suicide or natural causes.
