Injury Reserve member Jordan “Steppa J.” Groggs has passed away at 32 years old.

The Arizona hip-hop group confirmed his passing on social media, however, a cause of death is yet to be announced. A GoFundMe to support Groggs’ family — his wife Anna and four kids Joey, Jayden, Toph and Ari — has also been set up.

“REST IN POWER Jordan Alexander Groggs a loving father, life partner, and friend,” the group wrote on the fundraiser. “Groggs’s heart has touched everyone he has came across. He will live on through his family, supporters, and the communities he was apart of.”

Groggs and Ritchie With a T met at a Vans store run by the latter’s mother around 2012. The two then met producer Parker Cory and were officially known as Injury Reserve in 2013. The group released their first EP Cooler Colors in 2014, followed by mixtapes Live from the Dentist Office in 2015 and Floss in 2016, then another EP in 2017 entitled Drive It Like It’s Stolen. They finally dropped their self-titled debut studio album just last year and released singles like “Hoodwinked” and “Waste Management” this 2020.
