Rapper Hurricane G aka Hurricane Gloria has passed away. She was just 52.

EPMD’s Erick Sermon, who has a daughter with the later rapper, born Gloria Rodriguez, confirmed her passing on social media on Sunday evening (Nov. 6).

“My heart is hardened today. One of my good friends…. my oldest daughters mother passed away today #HURRICANEGLORIA was also a legend in her own right in the Hiphop community,” wrote Sermon on an Instagram caption of a photo of Hurricane G. “One of the first puertorican female rappers She rapped with me. @redmangilla she paved the way

@keithmurray @diddy she was in all the Hiphop magazines with all the top females at the time.. #stretchandbobito loved a song that she did called “MILKY” She will be missed all around the world. I can’t believe this. Pray for us. Beautiful blessings. She was a beautiful person a wonderful mother as real as they come. We love u G🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️”

Yahoo News reports that Hurricane G’s daughter with Sermon, Lexus, revealed that he mother was suffering from Stage 4 lung cancer via a social media post back in May. “My mom has stage 4 lung cancer,’ she revealed. “I dont know how many of you understand what that means but even after 30 years of life Im still trying to process it myself. I have never cried so much in my life I have never felt so disconnected from reality in my life.”

Hurricane G only managed to release a pair of albums—1997’s All Woman and 2013’s Mami & Papi, with Thirstin Howl III. Nevertheless, she was an underground favorite off the strength of her assertiveness and as member of the Hit Squad, collaborating with the aforementioned Redman and Erick Sermon as well as Keith Murray along with other peers like Smif-N-Wessun and Tony Touch.

Fans of the 90’s Hip-Hop readily remember Hurricane G as an Afro-Puerto Rican female rapper who took no shorts on the mic. That’s her voice on the intro to Redman’s classic “Tonight’s Da Night.”

It’s a tough evening in the underground Hip-Hop community with news also breaking of Artifacts rapper Tame One’s untimely passing.

Rest in power Hurricane G.
