Well-known Haitian rapper and singer from King Posse, Jamecy “Black Alex” Pierre, passed away on Friday, November 13, 2015.
Haitian singer Herold Christophe died on Friday (August 28, 2015) in Boston, MA after a battle with prostate cancer.
According to several sources, the singer had gone through numerous sessions of radiation, chemotherapy, surgery, blood transfusions, and different natural remedies over the course of these past 5 years. Unfortunately, earlier this year the doctors told his family that his last session of chemotherapy was doing more harm than good, and there was no longer anything they could do to treat his cancer.
