We do not like to deal much with secular music issues, but when it comes to tragic news, we must post our opinion on a spiritual level. Allegedly, Chris Lighty who was a very successful hip-hop manager shot himself in the head, after an argument with his estranged wife. Lighty was known to many of the elite music artists, but obviously his personal life and depressed him so much, he did not know how to deal with it. According to NYDailyNews.com, Lighty shot himself, right outside his Bronx apartment.
Chris Lighty, a music manager to many elite rappers and hip hop artists allegedly was facing millions of dollars in debt with the IRS and his wife filed for a divorce last year. It may look like celebrities and those whom manage their careers enjoy better lives than ordinary people, but this is not necessarily true. They have their own troubles in their relationships and even financial problems. When many of them whom may not know Jesus Christ face their own struggles in life, most likely it can be very difficult for them to cope and they cannot continue to carry such emotional pain, alone.
This news of Chris Lighty is very sad and may he rest in peace. Our prayers go out to his wife and family.
