Chicago rapper Big Glo (real name Mario Hess, formerly Blood Money) was shot and killed in his hometown of Englewood overnight, Chicago Tribune reports. He was 33.

The rapper was Chief Keef‘s second cousin, a member of Keef’s Glory Boyz Entertainment, and recently appeared on his song “Fuck Rehab.” He had also just recently signed his first major label deal with Interscope. From the Chicago Tribune article:

Glo’s manager said he was trying to get the 33-year-old musician out of Englewood and the city. “It’s a lot of crime and violence in Chicago, these rap guys are being targeted, so you know, just trying to get him outside the neighborhood. He’s from the streets,” Renaldo Reuben Hess said early Thursday morning.

“He was basically trying to just get his rap career together because that’s a good opportunity,” he said. “They gave him some money up front. It was a good chance for him to get himself out the hood.”

Police said two shooters opened fire just south of 56th Street on Elizabeth Avenue around 9:45 p.m. Wednesday, leaving more than two-dozen shell casings in the street.

Hess was shot as many as 10 times and pronounced dead at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County. A 28-year-old man was wounded and taken to Stroger by a family member, Police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro said. He was in serious condition.

This follows recent news that Chief Keef was questioned by police about a shooting at his manager’s house, and he’s been associated with gun violence in Chicago before.

Rest in peace, Big Glo. Watch the “Fuck Rehab” video below…
