He was 52. According to Billboard, the singer passed away on Monday at a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida.

His death was confirmed by his friend, radio personality KD Bowe, who wrote on Instagram, "I don't know how to make sense of this.

I'm not ok, man. Covid19 sucks. Will y'all please pray for Emily & the kids? Please? RIH, King.

Or walk around it - all day. #RIPTroySneed." Sneed started his music career in 1999 when he released his maiden album "Call Jesus" in collaboration with Malaco Records.
