A couple of days ago, I was preparing my annual memorial blog post saluting the musicians we’ve lost this year. I was surprised – and happy – when I realized that we hadn’t experienced too many deaths.
That’s why this news of senseless violence troubles me. From rap-up.com:
Hustle Gang rapper Doe B was shot and killed in Alabama on Saturday.
The Montgomery, Alabama native, born Glenn Thomas, was reportedly killed in a fatal shooting that occurred at Centennial Hill Bar and Grill (formerly Rose Supper Club) in his hometown in the early hours of December 28, according to various tweets.
Some of you may not recognize the name, but Doe B has been gaining a lot of momentum in recent months and was set to be the next breakout star of T.I.’s Hustle Gang group. “Let Me Find Out” was a pretty big record down south.
It’s a shame we’ll never find out how far he could have gone.
