On Wednesday (Dec. 20), renowned hip-hop-lawyer-turned-podcaster, Reggie Ossé (a.k.a. Combat Jack) died following a fight with colon cancer, according to Hot 97. He was 48.
In October, Jack publicly announced his cancer through a statement posted on Twitter. “In [seven] years of podcasting, I’ve never missed an episode,” Ossé explained after missing his first episode of The Combat Jack Show since its inception. “I got hit with some real life sh*t. I was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer.”
Jack later revealed that he was rushed to the hospital for "pretty severe surgery" and that he was going to take on chemotherapy. "I'm about to jump on this journey to health with chemo and alternative medicine. Take care of your health. Your boy ain’t going nowhere though. We’re gonna keep doing this. Keep rocking with us," he said reassuringly.
