The largest list of "Deceased rappers" on the internet


When we think about deceased rappers, there are a few names that come to mind right off the bat; Tupac Amaru Shakur (2Pac), Notorious B.I.G., Big L, Big Pun, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Nate Dogg, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, Jam Master JayPimp C, Eazy-EAdam Yauch (MCA), Heavy D, Phife Dawg and many more.

Among our long list of rappers who have died, a staggering number of these musicians have lost their lives due to violence. HipHopLifted.com has identified that 35 of the 40 deceased rappers in 2016 alone, have died due to violence.

Although a great number of the deceased rappers on this list have died by the gun, some of our favourites have passed due to illness, Accidents and natural causes, such as: 


Eazy-E (AIDS Virus)

Big Pun (Heart Attack)

Heavy D (Pulmonary Embolism) 

Nate Dogg (Heart Failure)

Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (Car Crash)

Phife Dawg (Diabetes)

Pimp C (Codeine Overdose)

J Dilla (Cardiac Arrest)

Ol’ Dirty Bastard (Overdose)

Big Syke (Natural Causes)

Shawty Lo (Car Accident)

Big Hank (Cancer)

MCA (Cancer)

Guru (Cancer)

MC Breed (Kidney Failure)


Many of the rappers on this list died in their prime, raising the concern that their deaths could have been linked to some kind of a conspiracy or a plot to end their careers. 

The infamous, unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious Biggie Smalls has shaken up the Hip-Hop community and has many of us asking the question, was this more than just a senseless assassination? Was it part of something much larger? It has remained a great mystery, but one thing is for sure; when a rapper dies in their prime, the power and image that they possessed is frozen in time and in turn, the artist lives forever.

We ask all of our readers, when viewing our “deceased rappers” page, please keep in mind that this does not only serve as a webpage, it is a memorial to all of the legends and young artists who have lost their lives. These MC’s contributed their unique talents to the Hip-Hop world and now we pay our respects.

Although many initially believed there was a connection between the 2 artists murders, this theory has been widely disregarded. On the night of March 9, 1997, Christopher Wallace was sitting inside his Black Chevy Suburban outside a Los Angeles Hip Hop party and was shot 4 times with a rare "Gecko 9mm" ammo (only sold in Europe and some New Jersey and California shop) and was pronounced dead on the scene. 

Russell Poole, the official lead detective of the case was pronounced dead from a heart attack after meeting with Los Angeles investigators to discuss evidence. Christopher Wallaces mother has said on numerous occasions that P-Diddy and Suge Knight played a role in her sons death. "Complex" (a hip hop website) released an article claiming that the hired gunman Wardell Fouse (Darnell Bolton or Poochie) was the man who pulled the trigger, killing Biggie Smalls.

Tupac Shakur (25) - September 13, 1996

Cause of Death: Gunshot

Place of Death: Las Vegas, Nevada

Info About Death: Quite possibly the most controversial death of any HipHop artist or celebrity at that, Tupac Shakur murder had left the entire continent jaw dropped. The deceased rapper has since, come to release more music while being dead than he did while alive. The night was September 7, 1996, Upon leaving a Mike Tyson vs Bruce Seldon boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, 2pac and his crew got into a scrap with a known crip gang member "Orlando Jones". There is video footage of the deceased rapper beating the crip along with his posse by his side. Later 2pac and Suge Knight hopped into the infamous black BMW and headed down the Vegas stripe. Pac was riding passenger, while Suge was in the drivers seat, when a white Cadillac rolled up beside the 2 Death Row affiliates and unloaded 12-14 shots at the vehicle, striking 2pac 6 times and grazing Knight in the head. Pac would survive at University Medical centre for 6 days, but on September 13, died of his wounds. It is said that the deceased rapper tried to tell his brother in law "Mopreme Shakur" something, but due t the extent of his injuries and lack of energy, Mopreme could not understand what he was saying. This has raised concern since the murder remains unsolved, many believe his murder was a targeted hit by the police, the government or Illuminati, others believe it was a retaliation from the crip whom 2pac and his crew recently had a brushing with. Many people also think it could have been a hit by the East Coast legend, Biggie and Puff Daddy, whom beefed in the past, however; it was in 2pacs future plans to unite the 2 sides and create the new label, "THUGLIFE", which would have brought together 50 top urban leaders in every state to organize crime and solve the poverty issues faced in the United States. Before 2pac had boarded his private jet to Las Vegas, he told his body guard Frank Alexander, "I am a dead man walking".
