Acclaimed Nova Scotia battle rapper Pat Stay was the victim of a fatal stabbing in downtown Halifax early Sunday, CBC News has learned.

Halifax Regional Police have not identified Stay as the victim, but Stay’s brother, Peter Stay, confirmed the news to CBC.

Police said they were called to the 1600 block of Lower Water Street around 12:36 a.m. AT.

Stay was taken to hospital, where he later died.

The Dartmouth, N.S., man was revered for his work in rap battles, where two rappers verbally attack each other in front of an audience.

Stay had a large social media following and put out a new track two days ago that has already amassed more than 50,000 views on YouTube.

The video even includes a brief quote from Canadian rapper Drake, who praises Stay.

“Pat Stay’s definitely one of, if not, the best,” he said in the video.
