Amy Winehouse Dead at 27, Hip-Hop Reacts

Troubled R&B singer Amy Winehouse was found dead on Saturday morning (July 23), in her London apartment.

According to TMZ, police were called to the British songstress’s home shortly before 4 a.m. She was only 27 years old.

Following the news, many people from the hip-hop world took to Twitter to express their condolences. Big Boi wrote: “Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and now AmyWinehouse. All died aged 27. RIP to you all (sic).”

Q-Tip added: “The last time I spoke 2 amy I told her let her light shine more (sic).”

Producer Hi-Tek also chimed in, “R.I.P. AMY WINEHOUSE! never got to meet u but I appreciated the shout out u gave me on ur album insert..one love (sic)!”

Former hip-hop A&R Dante Ross offered these kind words: “I hope Amy Winehouse finds the peace she always wanted and deserved in her after life fly with the angels Amy u sang like one #RestInPower”

Ms. Winehouse had worked with several people in the rap industry during her short career, collaborating with Ghostface Killah on 2006’s “You Know I’m No Good” as well as rap producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson.

“RIP my baby SiS Cherry Winehouse,” Remi said on Twitter. “Love ya always.”

Amy publicly struggled with drug and alcohol addiction and recently pulled out of a European comeback tour. As of press time the cause of her death is unknown. —XXL Staff

  • GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!

    She Dead?

    YES!!!!
    FINALLY!!!!!
    Great news!!!!!
    So happy that this evil brain dead zombie has destroyed herself to the point of extinction. The life of this vile piece of trash should not be celebrated or glorified. She was the worst of the worst. The fact she made a few songs shouldn’t elevate her from all the other lowlife scum like her that are destroying civilisation. I’m laughing at all you fuckin morons saying how sad and shocking this is. R U Serious with that? The only thing shocking or sad is that it didn’t happen years ago.

    Happy Day!!!!!!!!,

    • Briana

      Thats a terrible thing to say. Only joking lol. Glad that someone said that. Sick of everyone saying how sad this is too. It’s sad when good people die. It’s not sad when trash like Amy dies. It’s a good thing. Yeah I said it. F you to all you fake people out there.

      • smiff ‘n’ wessun

        internet haters like u guys piss me off, u didnt know her or much of what really went on so let her and her music r.i.p. i dont see none of u guys making innovations in pop music!

        • Hip Hop

          We’re not shooting the horse, snorting the white and drinking our livers to a jelly blubber either……We all reap what we sow….

    • Sha

      @GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!

      You know what? The bible speaks of a special place for people like you.

    • RC

      Made my day too. Glad there’s one more junkie off the street. Filthy animal shouldn’t be put on the airwaves period. Hope Lohan dies next. I’m tired of people looking up to these fucking losers.

      • creamGetTheMoney

        you fuckin people sayin that shit r the fucking lowlife scum that your callin someone else. people like you make me fucking sick and should be fucking dead…you obviously dont know shit about addiction and the shit it does to people . enjoy rottin in hell you scum bag fucks.

        • F U C K YOU!!!!

          She didn’t have an addiction you moron. She choose a dangerous, reckless and criminal lifestyle because that’s what she wanted her life to be. She said it was the only way she was able to create music. Bet you were pissed when people were happy Bin Laden died too.

          You contradicted yourself in the comment too you fuckin douche.

  • Shawn not Sean

    Has everybody forgot she was a fucking racist?

  • juvenile

    amy its quite teribble d@ u’re gon 2 soon RIP b…………

  • 6

    GOOD OR BAD, SHE WASNT A MURDERER OR RAPIST. SO WHAT IF SHE WAS ADDICTED TO DRUGS?? DOESNT MAKE HER EVIL OR A BAD PERSON. SOME OF YALL FOLKS ARE SO DAMN IGNORANT. GROW UP AND REALIZE THAT YOUR NOT PERFECT EITHER. AMY, YOU CAN FINALLY REST IN PEACE, MY PRAYERS ARE WITH YOUR FAMILY.

  • EL

    esto feliz de k haya muerto esta perra, drogadicta.

  • Shewasscum

    She was a total waste of life and she gave proof nearly every day. Its a great thing to be talented but she obviously never cared because she disrespected not only herself but those that chose to listen to her music.

    You don’t celebrate people like that. You don’t want this type of person in the public eye so the young people that inhabit this world emulate them. This is not a tragedy, neither was Ryan Dunn, this was simply life giving them what they brought on themselves. This is due course, karma; we reap what we soe.
