Jeff Hanneman of the thrash metal band Slayer has died. He was just 49.

The monstrous guitar player died of liver failure, according to reports.

Hanneman

The punk rock-influenced thrash-metal legend and fellow guitarist Kerry King formed Slayer when both were auditioning for the same band in 1981.

Instead, they decided to start their own, to widespread success.

Slayer's sales neared 30 million albums worldwide, and they were often called one of the "big four" in metal alongside Metallica, Megadeth and Anthrax.

Hanneman is survived by wife Kathy, a sister and two brothers.

The Deftones were big Kris Kross fans. Who knew?

Last night, just after Chris Kelly died, the hard rockers paid tribute to the memory of the rapper with a pretty cool cover of "Jump" at their St. Louis concert.

The band fused its own hit "Engine No. 9" with "Jump," and the result made the crowd get off its collective seat and ... well, jump. Check out the video:

Police believe that the star may have died after taking heroin and cocaine, although an official cause of death has not been published as of this time.

Chris Kelly was just 34 years old. RIP.

Lil Wayne sent a letter of apology to the family of Emmett Till for disparaging his name in a rap lyric, but was the apology sufficient? Or even an apology?

Lil Wayne's "Karate Chop" lyrics contained a degrading reference to the teen, whose 1955 murder became a watershed moment for the civil rights movement.

"It has come to my attention that lyrics from my contribution to a fellow artist's (Future's) song has deeply offended your family," Wayne wrote in the letter.

Said the rapper, who suffered another seizure this week in L.A., "As a father myself, I cannot imagine the pain that your family has had to endure."

Chris Kelly, one half of 1990s pop duo Kris Kross, was found unconscious at home and later pronounced dead at an Atlanta hospital on Wednesday.

Kelly (below, left) was 34 years old.

An autopsy is planned before the official cause of death is announced but there is some speculation. A spokeswoman for the Fulton County police said:

"It appears [Kelly's death] may have been a possible drug overdose."

Kelly's cause of death has not been officially confirmed at this time.

Kelly and fellow rapper Chris Smith shot to super-stardom with the release of their 1992 hit "Jump." Their big gimmick was wearing their clothes backwards.

They were just 13 in 1991 when they were discovered by music producer/rapper Jermaine Dupri while performing at the Greenbriar Mall in Atlanta.

Dupri's label, So So Def, signed the boys and launched them to stardom. Back in February 2013, Kris Kross reunited for a long-overdue performance.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Kelly's family at this time.

Earlier today, Ray J came out with the official "I Hit it First" video, the track that he swears is totally not dedicated to a certain Kim Kardashian sex tape.

It features this artist and a Kim look-alike frolicking bed, playing with each other and a video camera.

THG can't help but wonder: Why did Ray J waste time and money putting such a project together?

Why not just take the hilarious single and set it in the background of actual Kim Kardashian sex tape footage? You know, like this creative Internet user did:

The only question that remains, THGers: Which song should be played in the background of the upcoming Farrah Abraham sex tape?
