Kimbo Slice Dies at Age 42, NYC’s Mayor Has Advice for Kanye West, & a Dungeon Family/Organized Noize Reunion is Set — ‘Tha Wire’
Professional fighter Kimbo Slice died on Monday due to heart failure; New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio had some some sound advice for Kanye West after his pop-up show drew thousands on Monday; Drake is number one again this week; and the Dungeon Family and Organized Noize will appear onstage together in Atlanta this year.
In less than a week of losing the greatest fighter of all-time (Muhammad Ali), famed fighter Kimbo Slice, real name Kevin Ferguson, died on Monday at a Florida hospital of heart failure at the age of 42.
Kimbo gained fame in the early 2000’s for his back yard brawl videos, and then later became a professional MMA fighter, competing in both the UFC and Bellator.
“Kimbo won his last fight at Bellator 149 in February 2016, but the highly publicized victory over rival Dada 5000 was reversed after the Florida native tested positive for a banned steroid,” said AllHipHop.
The intimidating heavyweight fighter stood at 6-foot-2, and weighed 225 pounds. His professional record was 5-2 with four TKOs. Though they were undocumented, Kimbo’s ultimate wins were his infamous backyard brawls.
Kimbo Slice is survived by his 6 children, and his wife Antoinette Ray.
Rest easy big guy.
On Monday morning, Kanye West had the streets of New York filled with thousands of people who wanted to see him hit the stage for his pop-up show, and it almost caused a riot when the NYPD made the decision to shut the event down due to overcrowding.
New York City mayor Bill de Blasio has since offered some advice to Yeezy and his wife about throwing block parties. Read more.
