LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes To Speak On Chris Lighty's Death On "Celebrity Crime Files"
(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop was violated on August 30th, 2012 when Chris Lighty passed away from an apparent suicide. Today (September 8th) two of Ligthy's closest friends, LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes will discuss his suspicions of wrongdoing involving his death for the first time on the TV show Celebrity Crime Files.
The episode of the TV One show will be narrated by Ice T and will explore the drama surrounding Lighty's death. A month after Lighty's death, Les Levine, a private investigator was hired by 50 Cent and Lighty's mother to investigate the record executive's death. Levine informed Fox News that it was highly improbable that Lighty committed suicide due to marital and financial problems:
There is absolutely no possibility that Chris Lighty would commit suicide over money. No I don't believe that Chris would kill himself over his marriage.
Lighty managed both Busta Rhymes and LL Cool J through his Violator Management company which also housed an up-and-coming 50 Cent. Neither Busta nor LL Cool J have addressed their suspicions of wrongdoing in Lighty's death. Busta wrote a tribute song entitled "Chris Lighty" days after Lighty's death and released the song on 1 year anniversary of Lighty's death.
The episode airs tonight (September 8th) at 10 P.M. EST on TV One.
