A medical examiner has revealed the cause of death in the unexpected death of Shock G.
Now, news surrounding his unfortunate demise pointed to something that people had suspected. A coroner’s report stated that Shock G. died after consuming a deadly cocktail of fentanyl, ethanol (alcohol), and methamphetamine.
He was found dead in a Tampa, FL hotel room. The establishment’s manager noticed that the star, responsible for discovering Tupac Shakur, missed his check-out time and went to his room.
Upon arrival, he noticed that the artist was no longer alive and was pronounced dead at 2:20 PM by authorities.The rapper’s funeral was on May 1, 2021, and was streamed live.
Unlike other publicly streamed celebrity services, this was a very churchy service where the family versus the label took the lead.
Shock G was more than a rapper, he was a classically trained pianist and producer responsible for the following hits: “Humpty Hump,” “Doowutchyalike,” “What I Won’t Do for Love” by 2pac, “I Get Around” featuring 2pac and Money B, “So Many Tears,” and “Kiss You Back.”
However, those are only a few of his hundreds of hits that he has laced the culture with, including the best verse on Westcoast Allstars’ 1990 song “We’re All in the Same Gang.”
