Dj Black N Mild died on Thursday, March 19, 2020, at the age of 44 in Louisiana following his coronavirus diagnosis. According to the Orleans Parish Coroner’s Office, he had tested positive for COVID-19 following his death. The Louisiana Department of Health previously stated that Stokes had underlying medical conditions, but didn’t specify what those conditions were.
Another New Orleans bounce figure, Adam “BlaqNmilD” Pigott, with a similar stage name as Stokes has caused confusion. In a video posted to Facebook on Thursday, March 19, 2020, Pigott sought to dispel rumors that he was the person who had died.
Pigott said in the video: “For the ones who don’t know, they always had two ‘Black N Milds in New Orleans. They had a Go DJ Black N Mild who was with the Go DJs. Cool guy. I’m the producer BlaqNmilD from New Orleans. I did a little bit of deejaying too, so I can see why some people get it confused. We spell our names totally different.”
Sabrina Pence, the CEO of FirstLine Schools, the charter organization that operates Arthur Ashe, said: “Our school community is devastated. It’s challenging to work through this while we’re socially distanced. We strongly encouraged anyone that had any type of symptoms — fever, cough, not feeling well in any capacity — to stay home.”
