Raptalk is sad to learn that legendary manager Jerry Heller has just passed away. There is no information about the cause of death but condolences and news about the death are pouring in on social media from several of Jerry’s longtime business associates like Douglas Young and others. Jerry, as we all know, was instrumental in NWA becoming a worldwide phenomenon as he guided the group and its label, Ruthless Records. He was also a legendary rock n roll manager having worked with Elton John and many other great names. The rap industry often has spoken ill of Jerry Heller but there is no disputing his contributions to hip-hop and music in general. RIP Jerry Heller.
