Roommate, we extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of legendary producer Chucky Thompson, who sadly passed away at the age of 53.
According to Diversity, news of his death was shared by Young Guru on Monday, and condolences from industry giants began after that. Guru said, “There is nothing I can write that takes this pain away. I have to tell my mentor RIP, my big brother, the man who changed my life forever. You were the nicest person the world has ever seen. You were the most talented musician I have ever known. You treated me like family from day one. “
Chucky Thompson was known for producing hits for artists like The Notorious BIG, Faith Evans, Mary J Blige, Nas, Usher, and a list of others. He was also part of Bad Boy’s Hitmen, which was the label’s in-house production team in the 1990s.
Diddy also spoke of Chucky’s death, saying, “I was in shock most of the day. Not only was Chucky Thompson someone I did Mary J Blige’s My Life with and a part of the iconic hitmen, he was also one of the greatest people I have ever met. He always made you laugh, always made you smile and he always let you know that he loved you. “
Mary J. Blige was another person speaking out. She worked with Chucky on her album “My Life” and “Mary”. It was also part of her documentary celebrating the legacy of her album “My Life”.
