Bad Boy producer Chucky Thompson has died.
The announcement was made by Young Guru.
“There is nothing I can write that will take away this pain. I have to say RIP to my mentor, my big brother, the man who changed my life forever. You were the kindest person the world has ever seen. You were the most gifted musician I have ever been around. You treated me like family from day one,” Young Guru wrote alongside a picture of him and the late beatmaker.
Chucky worked with some of rap’s artists, Biggie, Mary J. Blige and Nas.
“You made a point to the labels that I had to fly to New York with you on every session. You put me in rooms with Biggie. I will forever be in your debt and I will forever be your little brother. This one hurts so bad I can even explain it. RIP @chucklife365 there will never be another you!!!!”
