Mark this down as one of the most bizarre stories of the year: A troubled 27 year old man from Georgia was reportedly set to take his own life earlier this month until he had a sudden change of heart. According to local reports, the man identified as Bradley Evans of Augusta Georgia; a self described die-hard Kanye fan was contemplating committing suicide until hearing that Kanye will be releasing a brand new album on June 18th of this year. The man, who obviously suffers from some sort of mental issues told close friends he found a “new sense of life” and is excited for the new project to drop.
The man will appear on Fox54 in Augusta later this evening to discuss his rather unusual set of circumstances.
Kanye’s highly anticipated album, fittingly titled “Yeezus”, will be out June 18th, no word if the man will follow through on his suicide after the album drops.

In a series of bone chilling tweets last night, YouTube comedian and rapper Freddy E committed suicide through a self-inflicting gunshot wound. He was 22 years old.
The reason for his death has been unconfirmed, but numerous sources are saying on Twitter that it was over his ex-girlfriend and Tyga’s Last King artist Honey Cocaine. On Freddy E’s official Twitter account, he came very close to live-tweeting his impending suicide. What he shared with his followers is very disturbing.
Smoked my first pack of cigarettes today… been a long time since I’ve gone through heart break. It’s a cold unforgiving world if I do say.

If there’s a God then He’s calling me back home. This barrel never felt so good next to my dome. It’s cold & I’d rather die than live alone.

Hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty died Thursday morning after he shot himself after an argument with his estranged wife at his Bronx apartment, the NY Daily News is reporting.
Lighty, 44 — a longtime manager of 50 Cent, Diddy, Ja Rule and Mariah Carey — stepped outside his South Riverdale apartment about 11:30 a.m., after a spat with his wife, Veronica, police sources said.
Suddenly, a gun shot was heard and Lighty was found lying faceup with a 9-mm. pistol next to his body, sources said.

Musicians began Tweeting about Lighty soon after news of his death spread.
“R.I.P CHRIS LIGHTY THE MAN THAT SAVED MY LIFE!!!” Bronx rapper Fat Joe posted on Twitter. “I Would Be Nothing Without YOU!!! My Kids Appreciate YOU God Bless Chris Lighty.”
