‘POP, LOCK & DROP IT’ RAPPER HUEY DIED AT 32 After a Shooting in Missouri
St. Louis rapper Huey — best known for his 2007 hit, “Pop, Lock & Drop It” — has died after a shooting incident.
Law enforcement tells the press … Huey is one of two men who were shot Thursday 06/26/20 in St. Louis County. Huey succumbed to his injuries late Thursday night.
Cops say they got a call about a 32-year-old male shooting victim who’d arrived at a local hospital suffering from at least one apparent gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital.
The second man who was shot was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The police say the shootings are related. They also said it went down in Kinloch, Missouri, where as many as 10 people were present during the time of the shooting. There is no suspect and the homicide remains under investigation.
Huey’s “Pop, Lock & Drop It” track was a huge hit back in 2007. It spent 23 weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and peaked at No. 6 before earning double-platinum status.
The song track was the single from his “Notebook Paper” album, which featured collabs with T-Pain and Bow Wow. Huey’s music also became popular with St. Louis’ most famous rapper, Nelly.
Huey — who had recently released his single “Pulled Away” back in April — was reportedly the target of a triple-homicide back in 2009 in St. Louis. The threats were so real … a concert promoter allegedly told the rapper not to perform because he was being targeted. Check out the song on YouTube just below.
Huey is survived by his 13-year-old daughter. He only was 32. All the good ones die young. #RipHuey
