Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn “CJ” Davis confirmed that the rapper behind albums like “Rich Slave,” died in a fatal shooting at the age of 36.

“Officials declared a "mass casualty incident" just after 9 p.m. Friday during the festival where an estimated 50,000 people were in attendance,” said Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña. "The crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage, and that caused some panic, and it started causing some injuries. People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic.”

While the cause of death has yet to be disclosed, Lewis revealed in December 2019 that he’d been battling stage IV pancreatic cancer.
