Chicago rapper Mubu Krump is dead after being shot in a drive-by shooting over the weekend.
According to a number of online reports, Krump—a member of King Louie’s MUBU camp—was standing in front of his house in the 6800 block South Morgan Street in the South Side area of Chicago late Thursday night/Friday morning (May 24-25) when shots were fired from a car driving by.
The 32-year-old was reportedly attending a party at the time of the shooting. Reports say he was shot twice in the arm and twice in the torso. He was taken to the University of Chicago Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A photo is being passed around on social media presumably showing Krump right after he was shot:
Another man, rumored to be 051 Melly, was shot alongside Krump and is said to be currently in the hospital with serious injuries. He reportedly suffered five gunshot wounds to his left arm and was grazed in the head.
Mubu was known for his feuds with Lil Durk, Lil Reese and a number of other Chicago rappers, and was a frequent participant in a number of Twitter beefs back in 2013-2015.
Krump made headlines in January 2016 after sucker punching Lil Durk’s DJ at a Chicago Mall. He allegedly bragged about the incident on Twitter, writing, “We just scored. It goes down Lil Durk. [You] wasn’t ready in my time n**ga. Share [your] location, we can meet.” He added a “#putthegunsdown” hashtag to the tweet.”
He wrote in a follow-up tweet, “When a [motherf**ker] wanna meet, we leave [you] in da street… We don’t want nobody dead. We just beat [this] bitch ass n**ga.”
Family, friends, and fans took to social media Friday to mourn Mubu Krump’s passing:
