Huey, a successful St. Louis rapper, was killed in a double shooting on Thursday night (June 25). He leaves behind a 13-year-old daughter.
Known for his popular single, ‘Pop, lock it, drop it,’ the 32-year-old artist is fairly significant to crunk and hip hop history.
While the hip hop community and his family are mourning a loss, let’s take some time to remember the artist for what he contributed to southern rap culture.
“Pop, Lock it and Drop it”
“Toot that thang up, mommy, make it roll
Once you pop, pop, lock it for me, girl, get low”
This song came out in 2007 and in 2020, it’s still playing at parties and clubs! ‘Pop, lock it, drop it,’ peaked the Billboard Top 100 at number six for 23 weeks.
“Smile and Wave”
“I got my Louis v shades on feelin’ good
Hangin’ out the sunroof I guess I’m getting my parade on
I smile and wave like the president”
Three years after ‘Pop, lock it, drop it,’ the St. Louis rapper dropped this gem. He reminded us all to brush the haters off and he even got Dorrough on the track! ‘Smile and Wave,” when the haters look your way and don’t forget to pay your respects to Huey!
“She don’t know about me
You ain’t know about me
I got that I got that I got that PaYow”
We haven’t heard Bobby Valentino on a track in a while but, when he hopped on with the late rapper, Valentino did not disappoint.
