A rep from Doe B’s management confirmed his death as well, tweeting, “On behalf of doe b’s management i would like to thank all of his fans and say Rest in Peace my brother Glenn thomas aka @CBMDOEB.”
While details are scarce, his manager DJ Frank White said that his death was attributed to gun violence. The incident reportedly took place at a nightclub in Montgomery, Alabama. “Security yall let guns in the club??? Again???! You need to be arrested. This blood is on your hands #therose #centineiel hill???” Frank tweeted (@DJFrankWhite).
“I will do everything i can to see the rose never open. How many people gotta be fuckin killed. ??? Yall let guns in the club??” he added.
Doe B had previously been shot in the eye three years ago, and left him wearing an eye patch. He had been building a buzz with the release of his latest mixtape, Baby Je$us, which dropped over the summer.
