Lexington Rapper Jup Mourned By Family And Friends

Street Credit is saddened to hear about the passing of rapper Jup from Lexington, KY who died this week from complications from diabetes, becoming aware of his condition only after it was to late, leaving the hospital and suffering a seizure that took his life. Street Credit first worked with Jup and his group Infinite Faction back in 2005, appearing briefly on the original Derby Edition DVD and had a longer segment on the followup King of the Bluegrass DVD. Much loved throughout Lexington and by fellow artists throughout the state, the hip hop community has suffered a tremendous loss. Our condolences are with his many friends and family.
