Another rapper was murdered yesterday in Los Angeles - the brother of popular Houston hip hop artists Maxo Cream.

MTO News has confirmed that yesterday Money Madu, the brother of Maxo Kream, was shot and killed. Maxo was a popular rapper in his own right. And Money Badu represented the Crip set.

He's the third Crip affiliated rapper murdered in Los Angeles in the last year. First Nipsey, then Pop Smoke, now him.

Here are pics of Madu:

MTO News first learned of the news of Money Madu's death when rapper Joey Fatts gave his condolences to "fellow Crip Maxo Kream" for the murder of his brother Madu.

Maxo's brother Madu is one of the main reasons we have Maxo Kream in the first place. If you look through Maxo's whole catalogue of music, you'll find that he frequently referenced his brother, who he called his inspiration.
