Tragic news has reached us today that Kottonmouth Kings rapper Saint Dog has passed away aged just forty-four.
And tributes have since come pouring in online for the star.
And comprised of Saint Dog, D-Loc, and Johnny Richter.
But returned in 2015 for the group’s thirteenth release, Ganja Farm.
Kevin Zinger said in a statement to TMZ: “Anyone that knew Steve saw what a big heart he had.”
“Some of my fondest memories was watching Steve stop the music in the middle of a Kottonmouth Kings show to bring a handicapped fan in a wheelchair on stage so that he could have a better view of the show and even join in singing a few songs.”
“That was just the kind of person Steve was and he touched so many people in a positive way.
“His legacy will live on in his music and our hearts go out to his Son Max and his entire family, friends, and fans worldwide.”
He was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency services.
An autopsy is due to take place to determine his cause of death.
Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.
