Arizona hip-hop group Injury Reserve has confirmed the death of one of its member Jordan “Steppa J.” Groggs at the age of 32. Cause of death is yet to be revealed.
“REST IN POWER Jordan Alexander Groggs a loving father, life partner, and friend,” the group wrote on the fundraiser. “Groggs’s heart has touched everyone he has came across. He will live on through his family, supporters, and the communities he was apart of.”
According to Hypebeast, the group released their first EP Cooler Colors in 2014, followed by mixtapes Live from the Dentist Office in 2015 and Floss in 2016, then another EP in 2017 entitled Drive It Like It’s Stolen. They finally dropped their self-titled debut studio album just last year and released singles like “Hoodwinked” and “Waste Management” this 2020.
