Tragic news from the rap scene. David Jude Jolicoeur made a name for himself under his stage name Trugoy the Dove or Dave. Especially as a member of the rap trio De La Soul, which was founded in 1987, he celebrated success with his colleagues Posdnuos and Maseo. But now tragic news is making the rounds. Trugoy died at the age of 54.
Trugoy’s team has now confirmed this tragic message to AllHipHop. Details of his death are not yet known. In the past, however, the musician had to struggle with his health. In 2018, he shared his battle with congestive heart failure with his Instagram followers. In 2020 he was hospitalized again. Trugoy was only 54 years old.
The fact that he could no longer be on stage as usual due to his health problems made Trugoy difficult. “I’m ready to go back on stage. I miss that. I love to travel. I love being with my boys and I want that back,” he said on Instagram in 2018.
