“Jon held onto the wing until it was too late, and by the time he let go, he didn’t have time to pull his chute. He impacted and died instantly,” Ryan Desrochers with the management team told CNN in a statement.

The rapper was known for his extreme stunts, which he liked to perform in his music videos, and previously jumped out of a plane in a shoot for a song called “The Man”.

The pilot was reportedly able to regain control and land the plane safely.
