The news of his death was announced on Facebook by the actor’s friend, Marsel Watts.

“My friend, my last roommate for 10 years, father and family man, brother, skate buddy, business partner and trainer passed away this morning. RIP Sean Lampkin,” she wrote.

“BKA as Nipsey the bartender in Martin, the pest control man in Bad Boys, the taxi driver in Big Mamas House and the gunman in Life,” she added, listing others from his famous roles. “He was also a black belt in karate. He worked for Martin Lawrence for decades as a right-hand man. No Martin without Sean.

Memnar Grayton later shared that the comedic talent died in his sleep.

“Sean gave us bright sunshine each morning to lead his loved ones and friends on clear paths free from danger. He gave us streams of love each day when we were not feeling well or don’t seem to want to do anything,” he wrote, according to Essence.
