MONTREAL, Feb. 12 /CNW Telbec/ - It is with deep sorrow that Trilatéral,
E-Stunt, and Groupe Style Communications became aware this morning of
the death of artist, harmonica player, and rapper, as well as their
beloved friend, Paul Frappier, a.k.a. Bad News Brown. Henry Gelot,
Gilles Champion, and Carla Beauvais wish to express their sincerest
condolences to his family, in particular to his parents, his sisters,
his brothers, his partner, and son.
Originally from Haiti, Bad News Brown arrived in Montreal at an early
age, where he remained with his adoptive family until he left home
during his teenage years. He quickly learned to make a living playing
the harmonica in the Metro and was rather successful. Before long, Bad
News Brown was recognized for his skills on the harmonica by
international hip-hop artists of repute, with whom he later shared the
stage on many occasions.
"Bad News Brown's death is a great loss for the entire hip-hop and music
community in Quebec," said Henry Gelot, his manager. "In addition to
being one of the first rappers from Quebec to reach international
acclaim, Bad News Brown has certainly left a mark on everyone who knew
him," Gelot added. His determination in life, his love for music, and
his overall generosity will not be forgotten.
Information about services will be announced shortly.
