Rapper Mo3, whose legal name is Melvin Noble, was killed today in Dallas, TX — his hometown.

Per reports, Mo3 was driving on the freeway when a vehicle pulled up next to him and fired multiple bullets into his car. Other motorists tried to flee the scene as chaos erupted. Mo3’s car eventually crashed into a concrete barrier.

Sources tell The Ball Out that this shooting could be related to an alleged beef between Mo3 and Yella Beezy. As one source said, “the fact that this happened in Oak Cliff (Yella’s territory) doesn’t look too good at all.” Sources say it could be allegedly someone connected to Yella Beezy.

Videos online are showing a man receiving CPR, however, per reports, that individual is Mo3 who died from his injuries.

Mo3 was a rising star, who has been associated with Boosie Badazz’s Bad Azz Music label.

Unfortunately, this is the second time Mo3 has been shot at. In Dec. of 2019, the 27-year-old rapper was shot in the head. After surviving the attack, the rapper showed himself with blood gushing down his head.

A local news station reported another individual was in Mo3’s car and sustained a gunshot wound. That innocent bystander, who still hasn’t been named, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect is still at-large as an investigation continues.

More details to come as the story develops.
