Road Manager For Nicki Minaj Stabbed To Death In Bar Fight

By HHL Editors

You probably don't know the name  De’Von 'Day Day' Pickett, but he was an important part of the Hip Hop community.

He's also dead, after being stabbed to death last night outside of a Philadelphia night spot.

Pickett was the road manager for Nicki Minaj, and he has filled similar posts for Pusha T and Fabolous.

According to police, Eric Parker, another member of Minaj's crew, got into argument at West Oak Lane’s Che Bar & Grill. The argument spilled outside at about 2 AM and an unknown man stabbed both Pickett and Parker, who's said to be in critical condition.

“We believe that both of the victims, as well as the perpetrator, were all inside of this bar and that’s when an argument started,” said Philadelphia PD Chief Inspector Scott Small.

Tributes to Pickett have been flowing on social media. Pusha T's is especially touching. RIP, Day Day.

It's killing me to talk abt you in the past tense. I don't believe I've ever met someone as selfless as you. No one as humble and for the team as you. I hired you as my road manager simply because I knew you were more honest than me. There were stronger, more experienced, more polished candidates for the job but they weren't better than you. You made me see good in people. You gave everyone a chance, they should've gave you a chance. You didn't deserve this @daydaydoesdis . Love You #RIP A photo posted by kingpush (@kingpush) on
