Shock G is dead at age 51. The rapper/singer was found Thursday in a hotel room with no signs of trauma, according to his father Edward Racker. The cause of death will be determined through an autopsy by authorities who do not suspect foul play as the reason for Shock’s passing away.

Shock G is best known as Humpty Hump from Digital Underground and famous for their song “Humpty Dance”.

Shock G is most well-known for his work with Tupac, but he also had a hand in introducing the rapper to the world. In fact, Pac’s first public appearance was on Digital Underground’s “Same Song,” and Shock G himself appeared alongside him in its music video!
