Pat Stay, a renowned combat rapper, was constantly tuned into hip-hop culture. He criticized The Game last month for trying to entice Eminem with the diss track “The Black Slim Shady,” which was released as a part of the Drillmatic: Heart Vs. Mind album. Stay was tragically stabbed to death after calling out The Game.
According to HipHopDX, Pat Stay, the Canadian battle rapper who just a few weeks ago called out The Game for “desperately” trying to get Eminem’s attention, has been fatally stabbed. Stay’s brother, Peter Stay, verified his passing. According to CBC News, Halifax Regional Police have not publicly identified Stay as the victim.
A stabbing was reported, and police were called to the 1600 block of Lower Water Street at roughly 12:36 a.m. local time. After being transported to a local hospital, Stay eventually passed away from his wounds. It was later confirmed that the event happened in a bar.
Stay shared an Instagram photo of Game, who was sitting in bed without a shirt on and scrolling on his phone. In reference to Em’s song “Stan,” which was released in 2000 and was about a fanatic, the sentence at the top read: “Dear Slim I Wrote You But You Still Ain’t Callin.” Stay criticized “The Black Slim Shady” in the caption and hinted that he was disappointed in what he had done.
Four days ago, Stay wrote another uncannily prescient Instagram post in which he discussed how unpredictable life is. Pat Stay passed away when he was 36 years old. We offer our deepest condolences to his family, friends, and loved ones. RIP.
