the actor best known for his role portraying Tony Soprano on HBO’s popular series ‘The Soprano’s’ has sadly passed away a the age of 51.
[Sidebar: I used to love me some Tony Soprano… for whatever reason, he was sexy as hail to me.]
For six seasons, Gandolfini gave fans his version of a ‘BAWSE’ in the landmark HBO drama, a performance that will forever be cherished as one of television’s best.

That show was so much better than the reality junk we have to deal with today… but I digress!

Word spread quickly through Atlanta’s tight knit entertainment community last night that Kelly had died at his home from unknown causes… and since there’s been many a celebrity “killed” on the internet, I decided to inquire with a few sources close to the rapper before moving forward with the news.
