Prince dead at age 57

Superstar Prince died at his estate in Carver County, Minn., on Thursday, his publicist said.

The Carver County Sheriff’s Office had been investigating a death at the estate.

“We are not releasing any information regarding the identity of the person who died until next of kin is notified,” spokesman Jason Kamerud said.

TMZ first reported the singer had died at age 57.

On Friday, Prince was released from the hospital and returned to his Minnesota home after making an emergency landing in Illinois.

Prince has been battling the flu for several weeks, even canceling two shows in Atlanta last week, his representative told TMZ. Those shows were pushed to Thursday, and, although still not feeling well, he performed anyway for a packed Fox Theatre crowd.

After boarding his private plane to fly home, the singer’s condition worsened, and the pilot made an unscheduled stop around 1 a.m. at Quad City International Airport in Moline.

After receiving treatment, Prince was back on the plane three hours later.

Fat Joe Details Feeling Abandoned By Nas After Ending His Beef With Jay Z

Back in 2001 when Nas and Jay Z were enthralled in their Rap beef, Fat Joe sided with Nas resulting in tension between Terror Squad and Roc-A-Fella Records. But when the Jay Z-Nas beef was squashed between the two rappers, Fat Joe says he felt abandoned.

“When Nas caught beef with Jay Z, they threw the battery in my back,” the Bronx-bred rapper says in an interview with This Is 50. “Like, ‘We got beef with this man’ and I’m all muscle. So I’m like alright. And I’m moving a certain way and the moral to the story is that there was bad blood between Roc-A-Fella and Terror Squad for a long time and the next thing I know I seen Nas with Jay Z and there was peace. But it left me in the outskirts. He didn’t pick up the phone like, ‘Yo, I’m about to squash this.’ I would’ve told him go get money. I’m all about getting money, so I would’ve told him go get money. Now me and these niggas got beef because I was reppin’ you hard.”

Four years later, Jay Z and Nas ended up uniting on stage at the Continental Airlines Center in New Jersey. The pair also performed together.

Fat Joe says that now he and Jay are good but he does feel like the situation between himself and Nas could’ve been handled differently.

“I felt abandoned,” Fat Joe continues. “Like wow. I was frontin’ nine for a nigga.”
