Def Jam label head Shakir Stewart found dead

based on the snakey culture and politics of the hiphop INDUSTRY, i've got to say I for one, don't take the suicide claims at face value.

Stewart's fiancée, Michelle Rivers, released a joint statement with his family on Sunday in which she said that "over the past several weeks, Shakir's behavior was inconsistent with the man we all know and love. As much as we all tried to help him, Shakir was in deep pain and largely suffering in silence."

and seriously...we will never know why some people take their own life. even if you're married to (or best friends with) someone who does it, you can be left completely baffled. depression sucks.
