The Houston rap community is mourning the loss of Dominic "Clip D" Brown who was shot and killed early Friday morning outside of Breakers after-hours club (9600 Bissonnet). Brown, 34, belonged to rapper Trae Tha Truth's ABN camp, and assisted Trae in giving out food to the needy on Thanksgiving Day.
Together they gave away 300lbs of turkeys and 80 cakes, as well as loaves of bread, bottles of water, and jackets to dozens of families around the Houston area.
According to HPD, at approximately 5:30am, Brown left the club and was sitting in his vehicle when an unknown gunman approached him and opened fire. He was taken to a local hospital but doctors were unable to save his life.
Rocks Off first learned of the news when rapper Bun B tweeted "Damn. Cold Blooded. RIP Clip. ABN." on Friday morning. Trae followed with "Can't believe my brother is dead... #RipClipDABN."
Anyone with information regarding this case should contact the HPD Homicide Division by calling (713)308-3600 or Crime Stoppers (800)222-TIPS.
The candlelight vigil to show respects for Clip will be held from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. this Wednesday at Alief Amity Park (12509 Alief Clodine Road).
Rocks Off extends our deepest condolences to Trae and the rest of Clip's family and friends.
Rest In Peace, sir.
