Police are investigating the death of an aspiring rapper from Brooklyn whose burned body was discovered yesterday in New Jersey.

Bergen County investigators say the rapper known as "Kampane" was found dead in the back of a Chevy Tahoe SUV in Paramus.

His body had been burned in several places.

Police believe he was killed somewhere else.

Investigators went to his home in East New York yesterday.

The 33-year-old's real name is Rhian Stoute.

His family members are stunned.

"Nobody wanna see nobody gone and lost, especially a brother like this. You know, with no real significant reason. Everybody loves him. Everybody has a good time around him. He was a never a guy anyone could say they had a problem with," said Stoute's cousin, Russell Jackson.

The Bergen County Medical Examiner is working to determine the cause of death.
