Remembering Big Glo

"A Chicago rapper who recently signed to a major record label and was a cousin of Chief Keef was shot to death in Englewood overnight," the Tribune reports.

"Mario Hess - who went by Big Glo at the time of his death and Blood Money before being signed - was the oldest member of the Glory Boyz Entertainment crew and was Chief Keef's second cousin.

"Glo's manager said he was trying to get the 33-year-old musician out of Englewood and the city.

"It's a lot of crime and violence in Chicago, these rap guys are being targeted, so you know, just trying to get him outside the neighborhood. He's from the streets," Renaldo Reuben Hess said early Thursday morning.

Glo was featured on Chief Keef's "Fuck Rehab:"




"Officers found Hess riddled with bullets on the sidewalk in the 5600 block of South Elizabeth Street, according to authorities," DNAinfo Chicago reports.

"Another man was injured in the shooting: a 33-year-old who was taken to Stroger Hospital in unknown condition. No one was in custody."


"Hess, who rapped under the names Big Glo and Blood Money, had recently signed to Interscope Records, his publicist said," DNAinfo Chicago also reports.

"Hess already had recorded several songs for his debut album alongside Chief Keef and Cory Gunz.

"Renaldo Hess, a cousin who manages Mario Hess and Chief Keef, told the Sun-Times. Mario Hess had received a $50,000 signing bonus. He spent a portion of the cash on bills, family and a car."
