Well today we got word that one of the most respected guys in the industry has died. Violator Ceo Chris Lighty has died of apparent suicide, and was found in his Bronx Apartment. While details are still rather limited, Chris has been very instrumental in the lives of artist like 50 Cent, Missy Elliot, Diddy, Mariah Carey and has helped to launch the careers of so many others.
