Jordan Alexander Groggs, aka Stepa J. Groggs, rapper apart of the Arizona hip-hop trio, Injury Reserve, has passed away at the age of 32.
The group, Injury Reserve formed back in 2013, after Groggs met a fellow member of the group, Nathaniel Ritchie at a Vans store location where Groggs worked as an employee, and Ritchie’s mother owned. The two came across producer, Parker Corey and the rest is history.
The group released their first mixtape Live from the Dentist Office back in 2015 in which they would release “Floss” the following year.
The account for the hip-hop trio has released a statement regarding the passing of Groggs. “REST IN POWER Jordan Alexander Groggs a loving father, life partner and friend. (6/1/1988-6/29/2020),” the account penned.
The group has also released a GoFundMe in efforts to support Groggs’ family in which they have been blessed enough to pass the initial goal. “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. Jordan Alexander Groggs is survived by Anna and their four children Joey, Jayden, Toph, and Ari,” they added.
Last year, Injury Reserve released their self titled, debut studio album. At this time, We, The Source send our sincerest condolences and love to Groggs’ loved ones.
