The Urban Buzz sends heartfelt condolences to the family, friends and fans of David Jolicoeur, a member of the iconic hip hop trio De La Soul, Trugoy has died at the age of 54.

The group’s publicist Tony Ferguson confirmed the death to EW on Sunday, but further details, including a cause of death or when Jolicoeur passed, were not immediately specified; however, Jolicoeur, who performed under the stage name Trugoy the Dove, openly discussed his struggles with congestive heart failure in recent years, including in the group’s 2018 music video for “Royalty Capes.”

De La Soul recently participated in this year’s crowd-pleasing Grammys hip-hop tribute at the Feb. 5 ceremony, though Jolicoeur did not join fellow members Kelvin Mercer and Vincent Mason, who perform under the stage names Posdnuos and Maseo, respectively.
