Dallas rapper Mo3 reportedly killed in Texas on Wednesday.
Dallas-based rapper Mo3, born Melvine Noble, has died after being shot by a suspect who chased him on foot on I-35. According to police, the incident began as Mo3 traveled northbound on I-35E at Clarendon Drive just before noon. After both vehicles stopped, a suspect got out of a vehicle armed with a gun and approached Mo3’s vehicle. Mo3 was said to have gotten out and started running but was shot several times on the highway.
The 28-year-old rapper was transported to a nearby hospital but later died from his injuries. An innocent bystander inside another vehicle also received gunshot wounds, though they did not suffer life threatening injuries. Police are still searching for the shooter and no arrests have been made. As social media caught wind of Mo3’s passing, fans and friends began sending condolences to the victim’s family.
Who is Dallas artist Mo3?
Mo3 was a father of three, and the Dallas-based rapper was well known for his hit single “Errybody,” which received a remix from Boosie Badazz. The video has racked up over 50 million views.
The Dallas native was signed to Boosie Bad Azz’ label. According to Mo3, Boosie was his favorite artist growing up, hands down.
“That’s my favorite. I don’t have any other favorites. Because he rapped my life. He helped me get through my days. Before I was rapping, I was 14 listening to him. I did jail time off Boosie. I did struggle time off Boosie. I did family violences off Boosie. I’ve dealt with drug abuse with family off Boosie. I lost a family off Boosie. Everything I did, off the music of Boosie. I grew up with him,” the Dallas native said of Boosie in an interview with Flaunt.
Boosie made multiple posts dedicated to the late rapper on Wednesday.
Mo3’s most recent solo album “Osama” dropped in December 2019. Music was Mo3’s way of surviving the trenches while giving a message to the people.
Prior to his death, Mo3 discussed how he believed rappers were constantly targets. “That’s how it’s always been,” he said. “Security or no security, you’re always targeted. Your level of success makes you a target. You have people looking at you who are less fortunate, so you’re automatically a target. You’re looking at nobody, you don’t know these people, but you’re automatically a target.”
