Every year new rappers get to see their efforts and hard work transform into good record deals, money, and ultimately a better life, but some lost their life before reaching this status despite having enough potential to make a chance in the Rap game.
Below we came up with ten aspiring rappers who passes away early.
Mac Dre was coming strong out of the West Coast with a new style and some sick rhyme skills. He managed to make a decent buzz, but unfortunately he lost his life before reaching the mainstream scene.
Stack Bundles, another victim of gun violence who was shot to death outside of his home. He was only 24 years old and had enough talent to make a decent impact in the music scene, but his life was snatched by some robbers before doing so.
A lot of people claim that Doe B was next on the rise. T.I.’s protégée was shot dead in a club while performing and sadly Alabama lost a talented up coming rapper. His camp is still making efforts to liberate some of his unreleased music.
Chinx’s story proves how cruel the New York streets can be. On the verge of having his breakthrough in the music scene with long time affiliate French Montana, Chinx lost his life to gun violence during a drive by.
People are still waiting for answers after the murder but one thing’s for sure: we lost another talented rapper due to senseless violence.
Coming out of South Carolina, Speaker Knockerz managed to secure a strong fan base before he passed away in 2014. He was only 19 and was grinding as an independent artist on the verge of having major labels trying to sign him.
Detroit rapper Proof’s death is probably the strangest on the list. Right before his final days among us, the rapper made a cameo appearance in Eminem’s video “Like Toy Soldiers” where he was shot and later on died at the hospital.
A few months later he got the same faith, almost predicting his own death. Nevertheless, he should’ve got more time to deliver his talent.
Bankroll was the next up from Atlanta when he was shot in front of a studio where he was recording. Apparently, an altercation lead to his death that night and left fans in deep sadness. He was also a successful music producer, so the Rap scene took a deep loss that night.
LA Capone had the same star potential as Chief Keef, maybe even more. He was young, coming from Chicago, and riding that Drill scene at the right time.
Unfortunately he was gunned down one night after leaving the music studio but his memory will forever remain.
The game lost one of the best rising stars when Lil Snupe was gunned down in 2013. He was only 18 years old but he had exactly what was needed to reach the next level.
Snupe was already signed to Meek Mill’s Dreamchasers imprint with enough buzz to make his entrance in the mainstream world.
