NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Russell Simmons, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and 50 Cent were among the mourners at the open-casket viewing for hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty in New York Wednesday.

Also paying their respects to Lighty at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel in Manhattan were Fat Joe, Q-Tip, Rev. Run, Missy Elliott, Michael Bivens, Ed Lover, Busta Rhymes, Gayle King and Mona Scott-Young, the New York Daily News reported.

Lighty, a father of five children who shot himself during an argument with his estranged wife in the Bronx last week, was wearing a black suit as he lay in his coffin, the newspaper said. He was 44 when he died.
