(AllHipHop News) Upcoming rapper Doe B, real name Glenn Thomas, has been killed. He was 22.
The details are sketchy, but initial reports are that the emerging rapper was killed by gunfire.
T.I., who signed Doe B broke the news on Instagram.
“RIP to my lil brother Doe B. We gon miss u my nigga. U’ll never be forgotten & U WILL NOT DIE IN VAIN. We Love U champ. Always. Just rest now my nigga….WE GOT IT From here,” Tip posted.
Doe B, a native of Montgomery, Alabama, was shot in the eye approximately three years ago and saw his career burgeon as he found a new dedication to his craft. After working with local talents, he then got the attention of T.I. who signed the young rapper for his credibility as well as his way with words.
Early reports suggest that he was performing in a club in his hometown when he was shot. Apparently another woman, 21-year-old Kim Johnson, was killed as well.
Doe B was most known for his hit single LET ME FIND OUT, video below:
Doe B also performed earlier this year at a celebration for AllHipHop’s 15th Anniversary.
They send thier condolences to his family and friends. As do we at NuORDER Ent.
AllHipHop’s first and final interview with Doe B is below.

WHERE YA REAL FRIENDS AT? NOT IN THE HEAT CELEBRATING LOCKER ROOM! COME ON MAN, THEY COULDA LET DRIZZY IN!
Platinum-selling recording artist Drake is a close personal friend of LeBron James. Heck, he’s more than that; James himself once called Drake “real family.” Combine that with the fact that the singer/rapper once famously called the Miami Heat the best team ever two months after they had watched the Dallas Mavericks celebrate an NBA championship on their home floor, and clearly, his Heatles bona fides have long since been established. (Step your game up, Bieber.)
So after the Heat finished off a 95-88 win over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals to lock down their second straight NBA championship, Drake made his way from his courtside seat toward the victorious home team’s locker room, where he could join his longtime pal in celebrating the Heat’s triumph. Just one problem: He didn’t have a locker room pass.
C’mon, security guard. You don’t really want a problem like that. You gon’ hype Drake up and make him catch a bohahahahahahahahahaha.
Seriously, though, shouts out to that security guard. If you don’t have the right credential, they shouldn’t let you in there, man. People are trying to work and/or shower one another with champagne and/or get drunk and/or all of the above. Let the professionals be professionals, for Pete’s sake! (Also, if every single media member present last night didn’t greet every other media member present by saying, “I AM media,” then every single media member present blew it.)
Still, I can appreciate that it stinks to not be included in something; as someone who spends a lot of time on the Internet, I can relate to that, Drake. (You and me, we’re not so different, when you really think about it.) So, in the interest of inclusion, here’s what you (and the rest of us non-VIPs) missed in the locker room:
Sure, that seems like fun, but your clothes would have gotten all wet and gross, and nobody wants that. See? Everything happens for a reason, Drake.
Plus, you got to chill with your pals later on at the club anyway. All’s well that ends well after starting with a bracing dose of humility.
Lastly, if the Spurs had wound up winning, I’m pretty sure Drake would have been kept away from their celebration, too, but for completely different reasons.

New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, who is caught in the middle of a homicide investigation of an “associate,” is also being sued by a former friend who claims Hernandez shot his eye out after the two left a Miami strip club.
The suit states that Hernandez “possessed a gun which he was not legally licensed to have.”
In a lawsuit filed in federal court on June 13, attorneys representing Alexander Bradley, 32, said that their client, Hernandez and several others were at Tootsie’s strip club in Miami on Feb. 13 when Bradley and Hernandez got into an argument. The group then left the club, and while driving towards Palm Beach, Fla., Hernandez’s gun discharged inside the vehicle.
“It fired, and a bullet went through my client’s arm and blew out his right eye,” attorney David Jaroslawicz told ABCNews.com. “It has been enucleated — replaced with a prosthetic eye. He has also lost use of his right arm.”
The lawyer said that “to my knowledge” no charges were filed as a result of the shooting.
A spokesman for the Miami-Dade Police Department said, “The Miami-Dade Police Department does not have any documented incident on record. We will continue to research the incident, and as with any developing situation, the details may change.”
Jaroslawicz said that the suit was voluntarily discontinued because language describing the injuries was incorrect. It was being refiled today, he said.

Bradley has done personal assistant work for Hernandez, according to Jaroslawicz. He did not disclose the amount of damages sought in the suit, but said that Bradley has had four surgeries so far and anticipates two or three more.
Massachusetts State Police, who searched Hernandez’s home Tuesday night, executed a search warrant today for an Enterprise rental car that was leased by Hernandez. The car was left near where the body of Odin Lloyd, 27, who was found Monday evening with a gunshot wound to the head.
The body was discovered in a clearing near John Dietsch Boulevard, less than a mile from Hernandez’s $1.3 million, 5,600-square foot home in North Attleborough, Mass.
Police spent hours at Hernandez’s home Tuesday night, taking evidence photos and removing boxes. Another search was conducted of a car parked in Hernandez’s driveway, a 2012 Chrysler 200 LX. The license plate connected that car to an Enterprise rental in Hernandez’s name, several law enforcement sources told ABC News.
A third enterprise rental car registered to Hernandez was recovered at a Boston Enterprise rental location. Last night, police were looking for this car, one of several that was registered to the football player, and intend to search it as well, sources said.
“Someone dropped it off yesterday,” a law enforcement source told ABC News. “Last night a BOLO [be on the lookout bulletin] was issued to all police for that vehicle, a silver Chevy. It has been recovered.”
Police could be seen today searching the woods and front yards of homes stretching from the scene of the crime to Hernandez’s house. A gun was found in the search, but ballistic tests discounted it as the weapon that killed Lloyd, sources said.
Lloyd was a linebacker for a semi-pro team called the Boston Bandits. Suffolk County District Attorney Jake Wark told ABC News that Lloyd had one arrest in 2008, a misdemeanor charge stemming from a fight.
Stacey James, a New England Patriots official, said on behalf of the team, “I am aware of the reports, but I do not anticipate that we will be commenting publicly during an ongoing police investigation.”
Hernandez’s sports agency, Athletes First, declined to comment.
His lawyer did not respond to repeated calls from ABC News today.
Hernandez is spending the off-season recovering from a shoulder surgery, though he was spotted at practice recently welcoming new Patriots’ quarterback Tim Tebow.

James Gandolfini, the actor who most famously portrayed Tony Soprano on the series “The Sopranos,” has died in Italy at age 51.
“It is with immense sorrow that we report our client James Gandolfini passed away today while on holiday in Rome, Italy,” said his managers, Mark Armstrong and Nancy Sanders. “Our hearts are shattered and we will miss him deeply. He and his family were part of our family for many years and we are all grieving.”
Gandolfini died while vacationing in Rome and a cause of death has not been given. Gandolfini was expected to attend the Taormina Film Festival in Sicily this weekend and receive the “Taormina City Prize.” Instead, organizers of the festival said they’re putting together a tribute to the actor.
Organizers Mario Sesti and Tiziana Rocca told The Associated Press they had spoken to Gandolfini hours before his death “and he was very happy to receive this prize and be able to travel to Italy.”
Though he rose to his greatest fame playing a New Jersey mob boss on “The Sopranos,” Gandolfini also had a long and diverse list of credits as a stage and film actor, including many character and supporting roles.
“He was a genius. Anyone who saw him even in the smallest of his performances knows that,” “Sopranos” creator David Chase said in a prepared statement this evening. “He is one of the greatest actors of this or any time. A great deal of that genius resided in those sad eyes. I remember telling him many times, ‘You don’t get it. You’re like Mozart.’ There would be silence at the other end of the phone. … He wasn’t easy sometimes. But he was my partner, he was my brother in ways I can’t explain and never will be able to explain.”
After “The Sopranos” ended its run in 2007, Gandolfini received a Tony nomination starring in the Broadway hit, “God of Carnage,” described in a 2009 New York Times article as a “satiric comedy.”
“I love hearing people laugh,” he told the interviewer. “Especially in New York, and especially now. To hear somebody out there just belly-laughing.”
Get more on the life and career of James Gandolfini.
Recent film roles included his portrayal of CIA Director Leon Panetta in “Zero Dark Thirty” — and he also appeared in “Killing Them Softly” and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone,” and reunited with Chase to play the father of an aspiring musician in the film, “Not Fade Away.”
Matt Zoller Seitz, a TV critic for New York magazine who interviewed Gandolfini in the earliest days of “The Sopranos,” told ABCNews.com of Gandolfini’s body of work, “You will never catch him doing anything false, ever.”
“His technique was impeccable and, like Spencer Tracy used to say: Never let them catch you acting,” Seitz said. “James Gandolfini never let them catch him acting.”
Beyond acting, Seitz said Gandolfini made an impression on him as “just a good man” who never forgot his roots.
“He wasn’t one of them. He was one of us,” Seitz said.
HBO, which broadcast “The Sopranos,” said in a prepared statement, “We’re all in shock and feeling immeasurable sadness at the loss of a beloved member of our family. He was special man, a great talent, but more importantly a gentle and loving person who treated everyone no matter their title or position with equal respect. He touched so many of us over the years with his humor, his warmth and his humility. Our hearts go out to his wife and children during this terrible time. He will be deeply missed by all of us.”
