    Billboard.com has reported that the Executive Vice President of Def Jam, Shakir Stewart has passed away.Shakir was found dead in Atlanta on Saturday afternoon where it looks like he had committed suicide. There is so official word of the causes and what would have led him to this event.

    Shakir was promoted to Executive VP of Def Jam in June as he replaced Jay-Z. He is also responisble for signing major acts including Young Jeezy an Rick Ross. Known by many in the music industry, his peers would describe Shakir was very passionate about music and would work 27 hours a day. That’s what I call passion and dedication.

    My condolences goes out to his family, close friends, peers, co-workers. Shakir will truly be missed.
