Sudden death?

U.S. rap label boss dies suddenly

NEW YORK (Billboard) – The head of rap label Def Jam Recordings died suddenly on Saturday, the company said. Shakir Stewart, who was named executive VP of the iconic label in June, committed suicide, according to reports.

Of course he died suddenly. He committed suicide. What idiot commits suicide slowly? You’d have to be really stupid or really hate yourself to do that.

Not stupid at all. If you read it like a “normal” person you would realize “suddenly” would be referring to the time frame of the individual taking the position and then passing away. 5 months is pretty sudden.
