Stephen "Static Major" Garrett (November 11, 1974 ? February 25, 2008) was an American R&B singer, rapper, songwriter, and record producer from Louisville, Kentucky. A member of the R&B trio Playa, Static Major wrote for artists such as Aaliyah, Ginuwine, Destiny's Child, Brandy, and JoJo.

Garrett died on February 25, 2008 in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. The cause of death was due to complications from a botched medical procedure performed at Baptist East Hospital in Louisville. It was originally suspected to be due to a brain aneurysm, but it was just a rumor which was confirmed by one of his relatives and announced by his former Playa bandmate Smoke Digglera

{{Quote|"There have been many different speculations about the death of my brother, Stephen Ellis "Static/Major" Garrett. I write this blog entry to set the record straight. I, also, ask that you direct all to this blog for the truth. I spoke to my sister-in-law, Static's wife, yesterday at the funeral, and she, again, permits me to do this. She, also, wants all to know "the truth in the booth." On the day of February 25th, Static was in Atlanta, and began to feel sick. His desire was to go home (Louisville, Kentucky) to be around family and seek medical attention. He had a virus. I, still, don't know what the name of this virus was, but it was not a life-threatening issue, I do know. This particular virus affects the muscles, throat (quivering of the voice), as well as, causes drooping of the eye. He had no history of illnesses or anything of that nature. Anyone that knows Static, knows that he didn't like hospitals. He suffered the death of his sister in the late 80's, when we first met, and had a conscious or phobia about hospitals. I'm sure he's not the only one. I, now, have that conscious. But, he knew he needed medical attention to become well.

When he admitted himself to Baptist Hospital East in Louisville, Kentucky, the doctors presented him with medicine that would treat the virus. The treatment was taking the medicine through a shunt, in the neck, which treats more severe cases of this virus. Quicker than taking pills for days. Though, he didn't want the shunt, the doctors insisted that he treat it this way. While having surgery to remove it the doctors did something wrong. He died because he lost too much blood. The prolific producer, songwriter and artist got his star with Jodeci's Devante Swing in the Swing Mob production group. That group would include future superstars Ginuwine, Missy and Timbaland, who Static went on to collaborate with most notably on Ginuwine and Aaliyah's projects.

Garrett was also a member of the group Playa, a R&B group who hit with "Cheers to You" in 1998. At the time of his death, Garrett was working on another album to be entitled Suppertime. The first single "I Got My" features Lil' Wayne. Among the major hits Static wrote lyrics for are Aaliyah's "Are You That Somebody" and "Try Again" Ginuwine's "So Anxious" and "Pony" Nas and Ginuwine's "You Owe Me" Pretty Ricky's "On the Hotline" and Truth Hurts' "Addictive."

Fans and friends have poured out condolences via Garrett's MySpace page. One says: "There is no doubt in my mind that this would have been the year that you took over the whole game." Take a look at Garrett's complete discography here.

Garrett was particularly close to Pretty Ricky's Pleasure P. The two were working on Pleasure's solo CD. Rex Zamor, Pleasure P.'s manager, says they called each other "brothers from another mother."

"Static's manager contacted Pleasure and told him what happened," Zamor said. "I still don't know [exactly what happened]. Pleasure's taking it hard, really hard. He spoke to Static the day before he died. They were texting each other and apparently Static wasn't feeling too good and his wife was about to take him to the hospital. "

Zamor says behind the hits was an exceptional person.

"His songs speak for itself. He has like ten number one hits. It's just hard to see that he's gone now. I just spoke to him two weeks ago. He was excited. He was on Lil Wayne's single "Lollipop" and he just got his first big break as a solo artist. This dude was a good dude. He wasn't selfish, he wasn't greedy, he was a good dude. He took care of his niece. His sister died early too and he was taking care of the niece, taking care of her college tuition and her car note. I remember him telling me that. He loved his wife. In this business there is a lot of infidelity, but this man loved his wife and family. His family lost a whole lot there. "

In his bio, Garrett said "I actually come from the streets and I hang in the streets. That's where I draw my inspiration. If it can't be played in the hood, then it just doesn't work for me. And nobody can hold me on harmony. My whole aura is not your typical R&B aura."
