T.I. is making sure that Doe B’s music lives on. In the wake of the Alabama rapper’s death, Tip has teased a collaboration with his protégé called “Why,” which is set to appear on Doe B’s upcoming album.
“Coming Soon…. It ain’t over…. We Got U lil Bruh!!!! #RIPDoeB #CBM #hustlegangovererrrrthang,” tweeted Tip, who signed Doe B to Grand Hustle Records.
During his funeral, T.I. vowed to carry on his legacy. “One thing that I will never do, I’ll never let this young man’s hard work go to waste,” he said. “I’ll never let his life be lived in vain. All of my resources, relationships, all of my efforts, all of my energy will be put forth to make sure that his dream lives on.”
The 22-year-old rapper, born Glenn Lamar Thomas, was killed during a shooting at a Montgomery nightclub last month. Two others also lost their lives.
