Chris Lighty's funeral held in New York City at the Frank E. Campbell funeral home on Wednesday (September 5th) saw attendance from megastars like Diddy and 50 Cent.
As HNHH reported last week, a music industry insider, Chris Lighty, passed away after apparently shooting himself in the head, althoughÂ reports are muddled as to why, it seems Lighty was deep in debt with the IRS and had also recently gone through a divorce.
Chris Lighty's funeral was held in New York yesterday (Wednesday, September 5th)Â at theÂ Frank E. Campbell funeral home on Madison Avenue, the same funeral home which took care of Notorious B.I.G. and Aaliyah.
Lighty's funeral brought out some of the biggest stars in the hip-hop industry, all of whom wanted to pay their respects to an influential man. 50 Cent,Â Â Diddy, Busta Rhymes, Lloyd Banks,Â Mary J. Blige and LL Cool J were just some of the faces seen at Lighty's funeral. LL Cool J shared a few words on his friend to MTV while there, saying, "he was a jewel and a treasured person in the community.Â Just one of the architects of our culture and he was my friend."
