St. Louis rapper, Huey, gave hip-hop one of its most popular records In 2007 with the release of his breakout hit single, “Pop, Lock, & Drop It.” This record went on to appear on his debut studio album, ‘Notebook Paper.’ This reached the No. 26 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. He released one more album in 2010 which was titled ‘Redemption.’
Huey’s life has now been tragically cut short as he was reportedly shot and killed on Thursday night in St. Louis County, per TMZ. He was just 31-years-old.
