Kevin Samuels has reportedly died at 57.

According to REVOLT Black News, the controversial YouTuber passed away on Thursday (May 5). The report came after news of Samuels' passing broke on Twitter.

And here’s the thing—when you were between the ages of 22 and 25 and you didn’t want to settle—you were trying to get the CEO, the pilot, the investment banker, you were trying to get flewed out…”
