Rumors, Rumors and More Rumors

 

There’s a lot to talk about as far the world of rap. We can talk about the albums that have dropped lately or the latest chart topping songs and albums. But within the past week or so there have been death rumors of some of the world’s best known icons.

One of those rumors followed five-time Grammy award winning female recording artist/ rapper Ms. Melissa Arniette Elliote also known as Missy Elliot or Misdemeanor was said to have died less than a week ago. Missy addressed and ended the rumor on her twitter, letting worried fans know she’s here.

The next performer that is said to have died close to 3 or 4 days ago is the greatly popular Todd Anthony Shaw better known as Too $hort. Fan was out raged about the rumor, but Mr. Too $hort  had assure and put many fans mind at ease by jokingly twitting “Stop calling my phone. I’m not dead. Been in the lab working on my 19th album #NoTrespassing in stores Feb 2012,” and “Are U serious? How did they say I died this time? And when did wikipidia & twitter become reliable news sources???” .

The Last Death rumor goes out to Mr. Aliaune Damala Badara Thiam, best known as Akon, who was pronounced died on January 30th, of the year 2008 due to a car crash, which was proved to be nothing more than another rumor.

I really don’t understand why people start death rumors of famous people, when all it does is help them in the long run. It doesn’t hurt them it just get their name out more and there music listened to, so why waste time on death rumors with no proof nor evidence.
