The 32-year-old female rapper was said to be involved in a hit-and-run accident late Friday night (Oct. 26) in Atlanta.
Reed was a protegee of TLC's Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, whose tragic death was also at the hands of a car accident in 2002. Left Eye championed the pop/R&B trio, known for their hits "808" and "Bring It All To Me," even signing them to her production company, Left Eye Productions. Natina is also remembered for her role in the 2000 cheerleader chick flick Bring It On alongside Gabrielle Union.
Reed is survived by 10-year-old son Tren Brown from her relationship with rapper Kurupt.
