It’s with a truly heavy heart that I report actor and legendary poet Craig “muMs” Grant has died.

According to Kevin Powell, muMs passed away suddenly while working on a film or TV project in Atlanta.

Completely blown away by the news, Kevin took to Twitter writing:

I am just speechless right now. Any of us who came up in New York poetry/spoken word scene of 1990s or 2000s know name Craig “Mums” Grant. Got word this morning he passed while making a film or tv project in ATL. Mums was mad gifted with words, and acting, and more. HUGE LOSS.

Craig “muMs” Grant’s cause of death is unknown at this time.

I came to know and love him for his role as Arnold “Poet” Jackson on the hit HBO series, “Oz.”

Condolences are starting to pour in on social media as the news of muMs’ passing spreads.

Rest in paradise, King.
