Rapper, Mike Beck, shot and Killed in Brooklyn

2 Nov

Mike BeckThe second murder of a hip hop artist occurred on October 31, 2009. The first was Dolla, he was murdered on May 18, 2009, while recording his sophomore album in Los Angeles. Mike Beck, however, had been an associate of Jae Millz.

However, recently, he had joined Fat Joe and his Terror Squad camp. Beck was a member of the Kill All Rats Mafia, which had joined Joe in his feud with 50 Cent. The feud between Mike Beck and 50 Cent has been ended, but not the right way.

Apparently, the reason for the shooting was an attempted robbery. His death was confirmed via Twitter by Fat Joe. Later, N.O.R.E. also confirmed the death of the rapper. Since that time, Cool & Dre, DJ Khaled, and Raekwon have sent their condolences to the family and friends of Mike Beck.

Beck had done work with Fat Joe and Greg Street and he held down the mixtape scene. The Brooklyn rapper did not have an album in the works. Ironically, Mike Beck was supposed to be featured on this week’s “On the Rise” section, but his untimely death has prevented that from happening.

Instead, Hip Hop Vibe will send our condolences to the up-and-coming rapper, Mike Beck.

Mike Beck, R.I.P.
