Some hip hop personalities have been reacting to his death including Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg.

'I got hit with some real life sh*t. I was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer.

In October, Jack went public with his colon cancer diagnosis.

The specific circumstances of Jack's death are now unknown.

"Internets, what's up? It's your man Combat Jack". I was rushed to the hospital, had some pretty severe surgery. Today I'm still on the mend. He later announced plans to begin chemotherapy and explore alternative medicine. Take care of your health. Keep ricking with us.

There was no better hip hop historian or interviewer than Combat Jack. During his lawyer days, Jack assisted and sat down with artists such as, Jay-z, Damon Dash, Capone-N-Noreaga, Russell Simmons and Joe Budden. "[Wow] I can't even believe what I'm reading right now. rest in power to my longtime homie combat jack. we've lost a true, irreplaceable hip-hop pioneer.my heart is heavy", Scott wrote in one tweet.
