Hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty died Thursday morning after apparently shooting himself in the head in his Bronx apartment, sources told the Daily News.

Lighty, 44 — a longtime manager of 50 Cent, Diddy, Ja Rule and Mariah Carey — was found dead inside his South Riverdale apartment about 11:30 a.m., police sources said.
It appeared he died from a bullet to his head, sources said. A gun was recovered next to his body.

Law enforcement sources said Lighty — who divorced his wife, Veronica, last year — may have been dealing with financial struggles, including owing about $5 million to the IRS.
Musicians began Tweeting about Lighty soon after news of his death spread.

“R.I.P. Chris Lighty,” posted Fat Joe on his Twitter account. “That man saved my life.”

Update: 4:15pm..."No Note Was Found In The Home..." - Chief police spokesman Paul Browne ...

^ money has a way of makin people feel untouchable. and even if irs does catch u, u just came up and most likely feel like u can always get more money.


if he did it because of the irs that means 50 wouldn't throw the n*gga 5 mil after all they did together.

did he ask? would you ask? pride is a sin, i suffer from that sh*t on a much smaller basis. i would never lean on the next man when im in trouble, especially when it comes to money.

Chris found it just like how 50 worked with Steve stoute on the rbk deal. Yeah I know. 50 was going broke before the deal.

The rich in the entertainment industry don't get regular paychecks like you and I. They get paid in spurts that are 9/10 likely to decrease as time goes by. Rapper X may make 1 million in a year but he's not seeing much of the million after breaking off the label, producers, legal team, touring expenditures, talent representation, etc. AND THEN FINALLY (or actually initially) Uncle Sam wants his piece. And Uncle Sam wants a pretty significant chunk of that income.

So alotta n*ggas rather say "fu*k it" and just cut Uncle Sam out of the equation until they HAVE to pay the IRS. Sometimes out of greed and a retarded a.ss desire to ball; sometimes because breaking off Uncle Sam means they won't be able to invest in future projects or will have to work much harder/longer than they'd want or physically can.

Prollem is, cutting uncle sam out a.ssumes that at some point, you can pay him back. Which is where these guys run into huge legal problems.
