Many of yall may remember the group PLAYA from back in the late 90's. Playa came out around the same time as Dru Hill and they were signed to Blackground music with Ginuwine and Aaliyah, among others. Collectively, Playa penn'd hits for Aaliyah, Dru Hill, Ginuwine, Brandy, and others.
It is being reported that yesterday, one of the members of the group, Stephen Ellis Garrett aka Static Major passed away in his hometown of Lousiville, KY. The cause of death is unclear at this point but some are saying he may have died from a brain aneurysm. Cheers 2 U was my JAM!!!! They also had alot of other great songs on their debut album they didn't make it to the mainstream. Rest in Peace, Static. You will be missed.
