Chilly B (Newcleus, "Jam On It") dead at 47. Yeah, yeah, we know-we know.

Did not find it in the mainstream media but this info has been posted lots of places this week:

http://www.jamonproductions.com/

Newcleus co-founder, writer, rapper, singer, keyboardist and bass player Robert Crafton III p/k/a Chilly B has passed away due to complications from a massive stroke. The stroke had left him brain dead and in a coma. On Tuesday, February 23rd the decision was made to remove him from life support and he passed on not long after.

Chilly B's signature moments were his classic verse from "Jam On It", his funky bass guitar licks from "Jam On Revenge (The Wikki Wikki Song)", and his booming deep vocal and sizzling synthesizer solo from "Computer Age (Push The Button)".

In recent years he was involved in independent production, including working on a new Newcleus album, and touring with Newcleus.

He is survived by his wife Valerie and his sons Justin, Jason, Joshua and Isaiah.

Sad news, but your thread title did make me chuckle.

RIP. For some reason, Jam On It never did much for me, even back in the day. But "Computer Age (Push The Button)" was my shit. Perfect song for poppin' and lockin'...

"Are we under their control, or are they under our control, or what?" and "Warning! Warning! Warning! Warning! Warning!" ..... classic
