Isamu Jordan, local hip-hop artist and music journalist, has died

Posted By on Thu, Sep 5, 2013 at 3:26 PM

Much of Spokane’s artistic community has been posting about this on social media, and we’ve confirmed that Isamu Jordan has indeed died at age 37.

We don’t know any of the details and aren't going to speculate as to the cause of his death other than to say that this is a shocking loss for our local music scene in many, many ways.

Jordan was a longtime reporter and music critic for the Spokesman Review and the talented MC of local hip-hop collective Flying Spiders. He was probably one of the most well-known (and well-liked) members of the local music scene and his loss is going to leave a hole not soon to be filled.

We’ll have a tribute to Som, as most knew him, in next week’s issue of The Inlander.

UPDATE: The Spokesman-Review is reporting that Jordan's death was an apparent suicide.
