The sports and Hip-Hop community lost a legend when Stuart Scott,  a longtime ESPN contributor, died Sunday morning after a lengthy battle with cancer.

The 49-year-old SportsCenter anchor was surrounded by family during his last moments.

“ESPN and everyone in the sports world have lost a true friend and a uniquely inspirational figure in Stuart Scott,” said ESPN president John Skipper. “Who engages in mixed martial arts training in the midst of chemotherapy treatments? Who leaves a hospital procedure to return to the set? His energetic and unwavering devotion to his family and to his work while fighting the battle of his life left us in awe, and he leaves a void that can never be replaced.”

As the bridge between Hip-Hop and sports, members from both communities took to social media to offer their condolences and fondest memories of the late Stuart Scott. Please take some time to read these messages to the fallen and leave your own in the comments section below.
