Rappers React To James Gandolfini's Death

Fans of the acclaimed HBO series "The Sopranos" were shocked and saddened to learn that the show's star, Emmy winner James Gandolfini, died yesterday (June 19th) of a heart attack at age 51. Gandolfini was in Italy to attend the 59th Taormina Film Festival in Sicily, where he was scheduled to participate in a festival event this weekend with Italian director Gabriele Muccino.

Several hip hop personalities tweeted their thoughts on the actor, who turned troubled gangster Tony Soprano into a television icon.

"Damn. RIP James Gandolfini. I just watched him the other night in 'Killing Them Softly,'" tweeted Phonte. "RIP TO JAMES GANDOFINI GREAT ACTOR GREAT MAN BIG TONY," Mike Epps tweeted.

"Wow Rest In Peace James Gandolfini ... one of my favorite actors of all time.... I'm secretely wannabe-Tony Soprano of the rap game," Statik Selektah tweeted.
