Authorities and his lawyer confirmed that MoneySign Suede, a rapper, passed away after being stabbed in a jail shower in California.
According to a statement released by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation on Tuesday night, 22-year-old inmate Jaime Brugada Valdez of Huntington Park was discovered in the shower area of the Correctional Training Facility in Soledad at around 10 p.m.
Medical staff at the prison tried everything to save him, but he eventually passed away. His death is being investigated as a homicide, but the authorities did not specify how he was hurt. “They said it was a stabbing to the neck,” Nicholas Rosenberg, Valdez’s attorney, told the Los Angeles Times.
The Times reported in 2018 that Suede had signed with Atlantic Records in 2021 and had just published his album “Parkside Baby.” There are almost 4,000 low and medium-security inmates at the Monterey County facility.
According to state correctional authorities, Valdez was transferred there after being sentenced to two years and eight months in prison in Riverside County last December for two counts of being a convicted felon in possession of a gun.
