It is with our deepest regret to reveal that the mother of rapper Andre 3000 was found dead at her home Monday.  She was only 58 years old.


Andre's mother, Sharon Benjamin-Hodo, according to reports was found unresponsive in her home sometime on Monday May 27th, Andre's 38th birthday.

Mrs. Benjamin-Hodo was the founder of a wonderful organization for underprivileged children which operated out of husband, Pastor Robert Hodo’s church, New Morning Light Missionary Baptist Church in Conley, GA..

For now, this is all the information we have.  We offer our deepest and most heartfelt condolences to 3-Stacks, his family and friends at this difficult time.
