And the Plot Thickens…

As we alluded earlier this week, more information surrounding Shakir Stewart’s suicide has surfaced:

According to the Cobb medical examiner’s office, the autopsy report will take up to 12 weeks. Police are also withholding official details about the untimely death. Still, speculation amongst industry insiders is beginning to make its rounds, with some suggesting that the demise of the A&R star might be related to his involvement with the infamous Black Mafia Family.Stewart’s suicide was shocking in light of his recent promotion to Executive Vice President of A&R just this past summer – a position he called his “dream job.” He filled a vacuum left at Def Jam after the exit of rap star and former president of the label, Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. Official statements from the Stewart family expressed their sadness and implied that something had changed about their loved one in the days before his death. “It is difficult to express or explain in words what led to the tragic occurrence on Saturday. Over the past several weeks, Shakir’s behavior was inconsistent with the man we all know and love,” a statement read. According to a music industry source, Stewart was completely engrossed by his work and never seemed happy. Though his salary and respect in the music business was generous, sources say that Stewart was always attracted to the fast life, and he was even known to borrow large amounts of money. “He enjoyed the hustle, the wheeling and dealing. He was always on the move, never sitting still…and always in touch with gangsta types,” said a source. No organized crime ties have been confirmed.

This story seemed strange, at best, to begin with. When friends start revealing personal information, there is normally some truth to it. We’ll be sure to keep you all informed as more details emerge.

  • about it

    From Wikipedia:

    Founded by Demetrius “Meech” Flenory and his brother Terry “Southwest T”, the brothers began their rise in crime by selling $50 bags of crack cocaine on the streets of Detroit during the late 1980s in their high school years and eventually evolved into selling multi-kilogram quantities of cocaine all across the United States. A two-year federal investigation of the organization concluded that its membership is extensive and nationwide, with an estimated membership of over 500. Around 2000 there was a split between the brothers, with Terry Flenory moving to Los Angeles with his girlfriend to head his own organization and Demetrius staying in Atlanta; Terry, the younger of the two brothers, shared with his sister (in a conversation caught on a wiretap) he was worried his brother’s excessive partying would bring the wrong type of attention to their business. His suspicions were well-founded, as the DEA was listening in on that very phone call.

    In September 2008, both brothers were sentenced to 30 years in prison for running a large scale nationwide cocaine trafficking ring across the nation from 1990 through 2005. With credit for three years time served, “Big Meech”, now 38, will be released on December 16, 2031, or around his 61st birthday

    Not another “snitchin’ murder, I hope not

  • reece

    I HOPE MY MAN DIDN’T KILL HIMSELF.BECAUSE IF SO HE’S IN HELL FOR A SIN HE CAN’T REPENT FROM. AS FAR AS BMF, EVERY HUSTLER I’VE KNOWN AND KNOWN OF THEIR DOWN FALL WAS ALWAYS BRINGING ATTENTION TO THEMSELVES EITHER BY MURDERS OR BEING TO FLASHY.SOME BODY NEEDS TO TAKE NOTE FROM THE HUSTLERS ON CAPITOL HILL (HIDE & INVEST). NOT PARTY AND BUY EXPENSIVE CARS,MAKE IT RAIN IN CLUBS.

  • Listen to the word in the music !

    It’s quite obvious that either one, he snitched those brothers out and they sent the hit man which is a lil far fetched, there would be more clues if it was that scenario ! Or it could be what I think, I think the money stopped or slowed down considerably after that big ass bust in 05, and the BMF thing was his first job, first love and Def jam was his second job ! They get busted a couple years later Jeezy makes a Cd called the recession Come on he not talking about our economy no no no ! I know what it’s like when they take the big man down everybody under him gone feel it ! It still is no reason to kill yourself I have a loved one who did that and I think it’s kind of selfish real talk !

    I never ever respond to blogs…but this one is a MUST…these statements are hurtful and untrue!! Unfortunately being in the public gives me people the impression that maybe people like Shakir aren’t human, and perhaps don’t have families and friends. But the fact of the matter is they do and NO was not GAY…he did NOT have AIDS ..not involved in BMF!!! he was a hardworking, college educated driven young man full of ambition living his dreams. Trust me those close to him know what caused his pain and hurt, but the reality is this…ITS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS. Don’t you think it is more important to say a prayer for his soul and prayer for his fiance, children, mother, father, friends and those that loved and will miss him instead of conjuring up all these reasons for his death. If anyone that knows Shake knows that he would have never killed himself…PLEASE stop the rumors and spread some peace and take the time to listen to someone you know that may be hurting!

    Anybody ever stopped to think maybe just maybe this man was bipolar?

    Mental health is always overlooked when dealing with black men. Perhaps he needed medicine that he just was not getting alot of times brothas get hooked on weed when it’s prescribed meds that’s really needed!

    IDK something about his face tells me this man was living a lie. He was engaged to be married perhaps he he might have wanted but been un-able to come out the closet?

  • Dizzy

    Whoever think it’s non of the public’s business why he isnt with us anymore is crazy…Because you have people like me and others who look up to him for his accomplishments. The hip hop community looked up to Def Jam and the whole music industry period. For people who’s striving hard everyday to be successful doing what they love to do within the music industry this sends a weird message to us. After reading about Shakir months ago he inspired and opened my eyes to new directions so it would hurt me to know that to be successful within a industry that I love I have to be involved in things that will cause me to die. This guy answered to 2 men only and he’s dead someone with that kind of power doesnt just die I need answers…

  • Food4Thought

    Word on the streets is: Shakir didnt know he was filmed while undergoing his homosexual masonic initiation and upon being made aware rebelled and was murdered. Couldnt have the President of Def Jam not being a member of the elite club….

  • domobk

    its crazii how no one posted after food 4 thought hmmm. but theyre on point with it. i think i have an idea of who u r! if u must anonymously spread the truth to express urself so be it!!! god bless
