PARAMUS, NJ (PIX11)—The burned body of a Brooklyn rapper was discovered around 8 a.m. Monday on a quiet residential street in New Jersey, the Cliffview Pilot reported.
KAMPANE, born Rhian H. Stoute, was shot at least once before his body was set on fire and left in a black Chevy Tahoe parked on Village Circle West in Paramus, NJ, according to reports.
J Runnah, who has worked with Jay Z, Memphis Bleek and the entire Roc-A-Fella team, went on tour with Stoute in 2000 as KAMPANE's career began to rise.

A police investigation is ongoing.
