Hip-Hop Podcaster Combat Jack Passes Away At 48

Combat Jack is dead at 48

Popular podcast host and hip-hop mogul Reggie "Combat Jack" Ossé died on Wednesday after suffering from colon cancer, according to reports. He had been absent from his well-known hip-hop and industry news podcast, The Combat Jack Show, which he expressed lament for via Twitter.

"I was recently diagnosed with colon cancer". Osse was only 48 years old.

"I was rushed to the hospital, had some pretty severe surgery", he continued. Osse tackled hip-hop culture and race on his podcast and interviewed artists on his show and was considered a pioneer for hip-hop podcasts; he called himself the "anti-NPR voice".

"Take care of your health", he tweeted. Keep rocking' with us. The specific circumstances of his death are unknown at this time. Still, wanted to let y'all know the progress and my focus to #CombatCancer.




Hot 97 confirmed the tragic news on December 20 after his fellow DJ, Peter Rosenberg, broke the news on Twitter with a fond farewell.

In addition to his podcast notoriety, Osse loomed large in hip hop as an editor at The Source magazine, a marketing executive (including a stint at MTV) and as an attorney: during the 1990s he represented Jay-Z, Damon Dash, Capone-n-Noreaga and Roc-A-Fella records.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Reggie's family, his children and his friends.
