In another act of violence in the Chicago area, rapper Blood Money (who was recently featured on his second-cousin Chief Keef’s new single “F*ck Rehab“) was shot multiple times in Englewood and later pronounced dead at John H. Stroger Hospital in Cook County.
Per the Chicago Tribute:
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.
Keef was questioned in connection with the shooting and released. No arrests have been made.
