Legendary Hip Hop Lawyer/Podcaster Combat Jack Dead at 48

Legendary hip hop lawyer turned podcaster Reggie Ossé, aka Combat Jack, has passed away after a battle with colon cancer. He was 48.

The New York native studied law at Georgetown and began his career at Def Jam. After several years, Ossé took to blogging and quickly became well known. Using his influence, he started The Combat Jack Show podcast. If you haven’t taken the time, do that now. It is some of the most entertaining interviews on the internet.

His battle with colon cancer was short lived. He first made the news known on October 23, 2017.

“In 7 years of podcasting, I’ve never missed an episode. I got hit with some real life shit. I was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer. I was rushed to the hospital, had some pretty severe surgery.”

Rest in peace Ossé

Below are some tributes by his friends.
