A producer for such artists like Ginuwine, Aaliyah, Pretty Ricky, Jay-Z, David Banner, Brandy, Destiny’s Child, Jay-Z, Nicole Wray and others, Static Major from the group Playa (on Def Jam) died yesterday in Lousiville, Kentucky. Static was born Stephen Garrett, and the exact cause of death is still unknown although sources have said it was from a brain aneurism. David Banner commented on the producer saying "He was a very talented guy and to be in this game he had a very good spirit," Banner told AllHipHop.com. "I really wish the world could have seen [more of] his true talent." Static had even had recently worked with Lil Wayne on his singles
"Lollipop" and "I Got My," as well as TQ’s new single "Paradise,"
featuring Krayzie Bone.
Static said in a previous interview what inspired him…"I stay in the streets, that’s where I draw my inspiration," Static
Major said. "If it can’t be played in the hood, then it just doesn’t
work for me. And nobody can hold me on harmony. My whole aura is not
your typical R&B aura."
