Legendary Director John Singleton Passes Away At The Age Of 51

Academy-Award nominated director John Singleton passed away today. The Boyz n the Hood director died Monday due to complications from a stroke he suffered almost two weeks ago.

His family announced his death shortly after they confirmed that he had been taken off life support.

“John passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family and friends,” they said in a statement.

“John Singleton left an indelible mark on the world through his masterful artistry and uncompromising humanity,” talent agency ICM Partners, which signed Singleton in 2014, said in a statement. “He was a visionary filmmaker and social commentator who created a path for a new generation of filmmaker, many of whom he mentored, in a way they never saw possible.”

At 24, Singleton became the youngest and the first black filmmaker to receive an Oscar nomination for best director and best original screenplay for “Boyz n the Hood,” starring Ice Cube, Cuba Gooding Jr., Morris Chestnut, Angela Bassett, Nia Long, Regina King and Laurence Fishburne.
