It’s been reported that producer Static Major (real name Stephen Garrett) died yesterday in Louisville, Kentucky.
At the start of his musical career Static was a member of Swing Mob (Jodeci star Devante’s creation) and formed close ties with former members, Missy Elliott, Timbaland, and Ginuwine.
Static’s most successful work was for Aaliyah, whose single “Try Again” was a worldwide smash. He also worked with R&B group Pretty Ricky, Mary J Blige and recently collaborated with Lil Wayne on the track ‘I Got Mine’.
The cause of death has yet to be determined.
