Shakir Stewart Passes Away

by Upscale Swagger on November 2, 2008

Def Jam executive VP Shakir Stewart has reportedly committed suicide yesterday. According to Gyant Scoop, he says “Everybody who I’m talking to is telling me that he was dealing with a a lot of pressure from higher ups at Def Jam.” Shakir had made headlines back in June 2008 when it was announced that he would be replacing Jay-Z position over at Def Jam. More details to come.

My condolences go out to the Stewart family.
