Chille Baby of Gospel Gangstaz posted a heartbreaking status this morning that stated his partner in rap, Mr. Solo, had passed on unexpectedly. There are not many details yet, but this news is tragic.

The Gospel Gangstaz exploded onto the CHH scene in the early 90s with their 1994 release Gang Affiliated. Their music elevated the sounds of CHH to that west coast gangsta sound that was dominating the airwaves at the time.

Over the years the group’s influence would reach and inspire many both in music and those in gang culture as they ministered through their real music.

As of late, news came out that they were in the studio or even finished with a record and just waiting for some final touches.

Keep Mr. Solo’s family and the CHH community in your prayers.
