 The Arizona hip-hop trio confirmed the passing of the rapper known as Stepa J. Groggs—“loving father, life partner and friend”
Jordan Groggs, the rapper known as Stepa J. Groggs in the Arizona hip-hop trio Injury Reserve, has died, according to a Twitter post from the group. He was 32.



Groggs met fellow rapper Ritchie with a T at the Vans store where Groggs worked and which Ritchie’s mother owned. The pair eventually found a young producer, Parker Corey, whose approach to hip-hop production helped push the group toward their signature sound. The trio formalized themselves as Injury Reserve in 2013. Without much of a rap scene in their hometown, Injury Reserve developed and first attracted a local audience by performing alongside punk and indie acts at shows around the campus of Arizona State University.



Injury Reserve released their first mixtape Live from the Dentist Office in 2015. They followed it a year later with another mixtape, 2016’s Floss. They released their self-titled studio debut last year. On Twitter, Injury Reserve also shared a GoFundMe page to support Groggs’ family, including his four children.
