(0 votes) just confirmed that reggae artiste Cleon 'Corey Mineral Boss' Jones was shot and killed this morning at his home in Caymanas Bay, located close to the Mineral Bath in St. Catherine. 
"No one deserves to die that way, he was shot in front of his home," Tawana Jones, the wife of the artiste, and co-owner of the Mineral Boss Records, told ONE876 EDITOR  Claude Mills. 
A woman was also shot and injured in her hand during the incident. 
An aspiring reggae artiste, he recently shot a video for the breakout single, "Break-Thru", featuring I Octane. The single, which was produced by Mineral Boss Records on the Daylight riddim, was one of the singles featured on Corey's 'Vision' EP which was released August 18th and distributed by JWonder 21st distribution.
"Corey's EP is out and we had a show booked for him to perform on December 30th in New York City, a show dubbed 'Break Thru', the first dancehall Met Gala," Mrs. Jones said. 
Corey Jones was the chief executive officer of the independent label, Mineral Boss Records, and his wife vowed to continue with the label's work. 
"The label will continue to be run by me, his wife, and we will continue to put out positive music, Corey's vision and memory will live on," she said. 
Mineral Boss Records has built up a solid reputation as an indie label powerhouse in recent years. The label prides itself on producing positive music and exposing creative talent, especially artistes in and around its community. 
The strategy has paid dividends. Last year, MBR scored a smash number one hit with Mavado's 'Progress' on the Money Boss rhythm. The song is featured on DJ Khaled’s Major Keys album, which topped the Billboard album charts late last year. 
"We shall overcome this tragedy," she said.
