Battle rap legend Pat Stay has died following a stabbing incident in Nova Scotia, Canada. He was 36.

CBC News reports Stay was fatally stabbed in downtown Halifax early Sunday morning. While police have not yet identified Pat as the victim, Stay’s brother confirmed the rapper’s death to CBC.

Police received a call about someone being armed with a weapon around 12:36 a.m. local time. Upon arriving at the scene, law enforcement found Stay with multiple stab wounds. The Nova Scotia native was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died. 

No arrests has been made at this time.

Female batter rapper Bonnie Godiva was a friend of Stay’s and is heartbroken at the news of his passing. “He was one of the best and kind-hearted people in battle rap-EVER. Pat was always trying to mediate drama and bring laughs to the community—even during our last conversation yesterday. We will all honestly miss him and the individual inspiration he’s given to millions of us.”

Godiva battled on the same stages as Pat and developed a name for herself for her lyricism, unique delivery, and versatile style having battled both men and women in the U.S. and in Canada.

Shortly after the news of Pat’s passing was announced, several people in the hip-hop community, including Drake, have taken to social media to mourn Stay’s death. The Alchemist and R.A. The Rugged Man also paid tribute.
