A homicide investigation is underway after the death of convicted rapper Corey Miller better known by his stage name, C-Murder.

The Corrections Corporation of America says C-Murder, who was 43, was found unresponsive in his cell at the high-security Louisiana State Penitentiary earlier this afternoon.

Staff members began performing CPR and emergency services were called, but he could not be resuscitated.

C-Murder was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1:20 this afternoon.

In 2009, C-Murder was sentenced to life in prison for the murder of 16-year-old Steven Thomas.

No other details about his death have been released.
