Shakir Stewart Family Launches Fund

Late Def Jam executive Shakir Stewart is being honored by his family with a new empowerment fund in his name. Stewart's mother, Mrs. Portia Labrie and Saint Maryâs College High School have announced the Shakir Stewart empowerment fund. Stewart graduated from St. Mary's.

Stewart was Executive Vice President of Island Def Jam when he committed suicide in 2008 at the age of 34.

âWith this scholarship, we would like to continue Shakirâs passion for giving by providing students with the opportunity of a Saint Maryâs education,â a rep for The Shakir Stewart Endowment Fund told AllHipHop.com. âThis has become the life mission of Shakirâs mother and she is seeking help from all the people that were a part of her sonâsiconic music career.â
