UPDATE:After news surfaced that singer Alori Joh died in February, reports show that she leapt from a radio tower in Compton, Calif., and fell to her death on Feb. 6. A coroner confirmed Joh’s death, which was ruled a suicide. The body of the entertainer, born Loriana Johnson, was found at the base of the radio transmission tower in unincorporated Rancho Dominguez near Compton.

Original story below.


Alori Joh, a West Coast native who worked alongside some of Top Dawg Entertainment’s rising artists including Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul, has passed away at 25. Details are scarce at the time of this report, but information obtained from Twitter reveals the songstress died between Tuesday (Feb. 7) and Wednesday (Feb. 8).

Lamar’s national exposure over the last two years helped to bring attention towards Alori’s vocal abilities. She sang on ‘Heaven & Hell,’ a song that appeared on his ‘Overly Dedicated’ mixtape in 2010. She was also featured on ‘HiiiPOWER,’ featured on the rap star’s lauded project ‘Section.80.’

Schoolboy Q, who featured Alori on ‘Phenomenon,’ a song off his ‘Setbacks’ mixtape, released last year, paid homage to the fallen entertainer by “smoking one” and shared the news with his Twitter followers.

Rhymer Ab-Soul worked with Alori on his track ‘More of a Euphoria’ and was a friend to the chanteuse. On Feb. 7, Sydney Holloway, Alori’s sister, contacted the rapper via Twitter to inquire about Alori’s whereabouts. Ab-Soul admitted he was “worried” due to the fact no one could get in contact with her. A day later, Holloway wrote the following messages on her Twitter account.

Last year, a solo project from the singer was released. ‘The Love Religion’ featured Ab-Soul on the track ‘Happy Medium’ and other cuts like ‘Let You Shine’ and ‘Bring My Freak Out.’

Alori Joh’s cause of death is still unknown.
