On Monday, Los Angeles police received calls about 7:30 a.m. that shots had been fired and a woman was screaming in the apartment in the 300 block of Hauser Boulevard in the city’s Fairfax neighborhood, LAPD Officer Jack Richter said. SWAT officers were summoned after the incident turned into a barricade situation.
When officers arrived, they heard additional gunshots and rushed into the apartment. There they found rapper Earl Hayes’ and his wife/ actress Stephanie Moseley’s bodies.
Hayes member of Floyd Mayweather’s “The Money Team or TMT” predicted his murder/suicide death in his music:
“Shoot your girlfriend or when you get surrounded by cops.
F**k the real life shoot it out and do your time on the spot.
Make a family crying with your girl and their hearstses.
Take somebody with you who really didn’t deserve it.
Show everybody that life just ain’t perfect.
And when you get mad, it’s time to close curtains,
Cuz this song is for you.”
Up-and-coming rapper Doe B, a member of Grand Hustle’s Hustle Gang, was shot and killed in his home town of Montgomery, Ala. early Saturday. He was 22. His management confirmed the MC’s death on Twitter.
