The creator of the hit "Super Freak" RICK JAMES has died, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson confirmed to ET. No details regarding his death were immediately available and the investigation is ongoing. The 56-year-old funk star was best known for his 1981 hit "Super Freak." He later fell victim to a crack cocaine addiction that led to a conviction for assaulting and holding a woman against her will. In 1998, James suffered a stroke. Just two months ago, James took the stage to receive a special ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills.

Funk Singer Rick James Dies in Los Angeles

13 minutes ago  Add Top Stories - AP to My Yahoo!
 


LOS ANGELES - Funk singer Rick James, best known for the 1981 hit "Super Freak," died Friday, apparently of natural causes, police said.

   

James, 56, died at 9:45 a.m. at a residence near Universal City, said Officer Esther Reyes, a Police Department spokeswoman.


"He died apparently of natural causes. We learned of his death after responding to a radio call," Reyes said.


After his big hit, James' fame began to fade as he became embroiled in legal problems and health troubles.


James was convicted in 1993 of assaulting two women. The first attack occurred in 1991 when he restrained and burned a young woman with a hot pipe during a cocaine binge at his house in West Hollywood. He was free on bail when the second assault occurred in 1992 in James' hotel room.


James was sentenced to more than two years in state prison.


In 1997, he released a new album, but a year later he suffered a stroke while performing at Denver's Mammoth Events Center, derailing a comeback tour.


In 1998 he also underwent hip replacement surgery.


This rreally sucks, and very sad, rip to a legend,

It's too close to the release date, so I don't think they'll do it.  They might edit the Chappelle show when it comes out on DVD though.

But damn... only 56! That's a real shame.

That isn't Rick James. People overseas who haven't seen the Chappelle show don't know about it...

I wish I had another pair of hands, so I could give this news four thumbs down!

213 won't take it out. It's in honor of him anyways, even Rick was down with the whole thing.
