Def Jam / Str8Lace Records recording artist K-Ruger passed away Monday September 19th 2005 in the early afternoon. At the time of going to press, the full details of his death were still undisclosed.
Str8Lace Records President Demetrius Peterson stated that the death of K-Ruger was sudden and unexpected, he expressed that his thoughts and prayers were with K-Rugers immediate family members. Mr. Peterson was arranging to return to Houston from California immediately to assist family members in these tragic circumstances.
K-Ruger had jumped into the spot light when Jay-Z signed him as his first artist, after accepting the position to become President of Def Jam Records.
Only last week, K-Ruger had been excited during conversations with distributors about the release of his upcoming albums and was proud of the fact that Jay-Z had said that he was like a Breath of Fresh Air and exactly what the rap game needed right now.
Ironically, K-Ruger had commented how so many great rappers had departed this world and yet were not truly appreciated until they had died, then he listed at least 20 names, including those of Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., DJ Screw, Fat Pat, and Easy-E, to name a few, all who were also young men when they passed.
God Bless you K-Ruger.
