    A new study concerning the deaths of popular musicians shows more Hip Hop artists have died due to murder than any other genre.

    Professor Dianna Theadora Kenny recently shared her findings after examining the deaths of more than 13,000 music artists.

    Kenny, who teaches psychology and music at the University of Sydney, recorded the results via The Conversation.

    According to Kenny’s article – “Music to die for: how genre affects popular musicians’ life expectancy” – murder accounted for 51% of rapper’s deaths.

    “This could be due to these genres’ strong associations with drug-related crime and g--- culture,” Kenny says in a recent interview with the Washington Post.

    “It’s a cautionary tale to some degree,” she adds. “People who go into Rap music or Hip Hop or punk, they’re in a much more occupational hazard profession compared to war. We don’t lose half our army in a battle.”

    The study also shows that rappers are less-likely to die from cancer or heart disease than an artist who performs jazz, blues or folk music.

    Check out the statistics via The Conversation below:
