With the rap community still reeling from the shooting death of Doe B, Grand Hustle's DJ MLK released "Flying With Angels," a track off his Good Night Don't Exist in ATL 3, which features T.I. and the fallen rapper.
The track (and accompanying mixtape) was released on Thursday and finds Doe eerily foreshadowing his untimely death. The 22-year-old Montgomery, Alabama, native was fatally wounded on December 28 while partying at a local nightclub.
"Gotta live life, 'cause the day you die, that's the day you become famous," Doe sings on the hook.
The oft-embattled T.I. turns his verse into a lyrical threat against the haters he believes have halted his progress. Doe B, however, uses his 16 to tackle the growing resentment he's facing as his fame grows.
"Now I ain't sayin' I'm famous, but the streets feel like I made it/ Come to Alabama, where they treat me like I'm Saban," he raps, referencing famed University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban.
Signed to T.I.'s Grand Hustle label, the emerging Southern MC sported an eye-patch over his right eye. On Thursday, Tip even posted a photo of a commemorative tattoo that Doe B's manager, DJ Frank White, recently got done that shows Doe with the signature look.
As fans mourned the loss of the rising young MC, police on Sunday arrested Jason McWilliams, charging him with two counts of capital murder. Darius Thomas turned himself in on Wednesday and was hit with the same charges. In addition to Doe B (born Glenn Thomas), another female partygoer died on the scene and six others were injured in the shooting.
A public viewing for Doe got under way on Friday (January 3), from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at E.G. Cummings Memorial Funeral Home in Montgomery. He will be laid to rest on Saturday.
