Chicago R&B Singer Johnny P Has Reportedly Passed Away
R&B singer Johnny P has reportedly passed away, according to a post on FakeShoreDrive.
Widely considered a Chicago legend, Johnny P was most known for his work on some of hip-hop’s biggest hits. He provided the vocals on Do or Die tracks “Po Pimp” and “Sex Appeal,” Twista’s “Yo Body,” as well as 2Pac and Scarface’s cut “Smile,” which was released six months after Pac’s death.
The members of Do or Die announced the tragic news via Instagram on Sunday, writing: “Our Brother Was Called Home […] Rest In Heaven #JohnnyP. Our Prayers Are With His Family.”
Earlier this month, Wicked Entertainment announced the artist had passed away; however, friends and family denied these claims, insisting Johnny P remained on life support after slipping into a coma.
Johnny P began singing at the age of four, and went on to draw inspiration from big names like Michael Jackson, Marvin Gaye, and Sam Cooke. In 1989, Johnny P signed with Colombia Records and released his debut album Connect the Dots. His sophomore album, The Next, was distributed 11 years later under Rap-A-Lot Records/Virgin Records.
Following the news of his death, many fans—including Lupe Fiasco—expressed their condolences on social media.
