Jewell, formerly known as “The First Lady of Death Row Records”, and who provided the hooks to many of the Death Row Records classic songs from the label’s historical catalog, has passed away.
From her show-stopping performances on Dr. Dre‘s “Let Me Ride”, and “Bitches Ain’t Shit”, Snoop Dogg‘s “Who Am I (What’s My Name)”, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony‘s “For The Love Of Money,” Tupac‘s “Thug Passion” and countless other hits, Jewell played an integral part of building the Death Row dynasty.
Daz Dillinger took to Instagram today (May 6) to share the news of the passing of Jewell saying, “🌹RIP 🌹REST N PEACE 🌹@iamjewellcaples IM SAD THIS REALLY HURT BUT JEWELLZ PASSED THIS MORNING. WOW DEATHROW FOR LIFE. WE GONE MISS HER 🌹🌹🌹 CLASSIC MUSIC 🎼 FAMILY OVER EVERYTHING”
UPDATE: Multiple sources have confirmed to Chad Kiser of West Coast Styles that the singer’s death was from an apparent heart attack.
Rest In Paradise, Jewell!
