Mario Hess, aka Big Glo, who collaborated as Blood Money with his cousin Chief Keef on a number of tracks, was reportedly shot and killed in West Englewood last night.
“This was his dream and he finally got his foot in the door,” Renaldo Hess told the Sun-Times. “But that’s how it goes in Chicago. He really wanted to get off the streets.”
According to police, Hess, 30, was shot and killed after 9:30 p.m. in the 5600 block of South Elizabeth Street. The Chicago Tribune reports he was shot "as many as 10 times."
Blood Money appeared on Chief Keef's "Fuck Rehab" as a guest:
He'd also released three solo mixtapes for wider consumption. In June 2013 he dropped Drug Wars and Choppa Talk, and in October he released Gangland. Drug Wars was his most consistent record. It included the distorted-bassline banger "Bitch I'm Crazy" with King Louie, 8Ball and MJG "Armed Robbery" freestyle "High Speed Chase," and the catchy Kid 3rd-produced "Heavy Lean":
