New Orleans rapper Young Greatness, who topped the charts with his 2015 mega hit song, “Moolah”, was shot and killed at a Waffle House in New Orleans early Monday morning, according to Nola.com.
The rapper, whose birth name was Theodore Jones, was killed in a shooting. He was 34.
Jones left his hometown of New Orleans after hurricane Katrina and was in town, tragically, for a funeral.
He was reportedly shot in the back while Facetiming his manager from his vehicle, which was reportedly stolen after the shooting.
According to Nola.com, police are reviewing nearby security cameras. Few further details are available at this time.
Some social media users pointed out that Waffle House has become the scene of periodic violence–not to mention occasional racist incidents.
Greatness was signed to the vaunted Quality Control music label, which left this tribute to the fallen rapper on Twitter:
