We say goodbye to another great one.

With 2017 coming to a close, many people are ready to say goodbye after losing so many greats this year.

Reggie Osse, aka Combat Jack, died Wednesday after battling colon cancer for several months.

Osse was a popular figure in the hip-hop community with beginnings as a lawyer in the 90s representing artists like Jay-Z, Damon Dash, and Roc-A-Fella Records.

He was diagnosed with colon cancer in October, writing: “Internets, what’s up? It’s your man Combat Jack. In seven years of podcasting, I’ve never missed an episode. I got hit with some real life sh–. I was recently diagnosed with Colon Cancer,” he said. “I was rushed to the hospital, had some pretty severe surgery. I’m on the mend right now. I’m about to jump on this journey to health with chemo and alternative medicine. Take care of your health. Your boy ain’t going nowhere though. We’re gonna keep doing this. Keep ricking with us. #RaiseTheBar #CombatCancer Let’s Go!”

He launched his ‘Combat Jack Show’ podcast in 2011, interviewing big names in the industry and influencing rap podcasts ever since.
