A rapper named MC Daleste was shot and killed while performing while performing Saturday night in Campinas, a town near Sao Paulo.
The Los Angeles Times reports:
The 20-year-old, whose birth name was Daniel Pellegrine, was rapping to a crowd at a public housing complex when he was attacked, according to Billboard, which cited local news sources. After the incident, he was rushed to an area hospital, where he died, the publication said.
No information has been released on arrests or potential suspects in the case.
Video of the shooting shows the musician breezing through a mid-tempo hip-hop track before the crowd when he suddenly collapses and falls to the ground.
Last week in northern Brazil, a referee stabbed and killed a soccer player after an argument over a call. It led to the ref being decapitated by the dead player’s fans
As for the killing of Daleste, there is extremely graphic video footage of the shooting (it presently has more than 4oo million views) on the next page.
Rest in peace Daniel “MC Daleste” Pellegrine.
