"RIP to my lil brother Doe B," T.I. tweeted on Saturday. "We gon miss u my n----. U'll never be forgotten & U WILL NOT DIE IN VAIN. We Love U champ. Always."

Management for Doe B seemingly confirmed the rapper's death in a post on his Twitter page.

"On behalf of doe b's management i would like to thank all of his fans and say Rest in Peace my brother Glenn thomas aka @CBMDOEB" the tweet read.

The circumstances surrounding Doe B's rumored death are unclear. But early reports claim Glenn Thomas was shot after performing at club in his hometown. There are also rumors that another woman was killed in the gunfire, as well. The rapper's manager, DJ Frank White, may have confirmed these reports by tweeting about gun violence in a club early Saturday morning.

"Security yall let guns in the club???" he wrote around the time of Doe B's death. "Again???! You need to be arrested. This blood is on your hands #therose #centineiel hill???"

Ironically, Doe B was shot in the eye three years ago and thus wore an eyepatch in the years before his supposed death. He worked his way up through the hip hop ranks before signing with T.I.'s label. Doe B's alleged death comes just months after he released his mixtape, Baby Jesus.

Before his alleged death, Doe B was clearly respected in the hip hop community. Several of the rap industry's biggest names expressed their condolences on Twitter.

"Damn," wrote Machine Gun Kelly. "RIP Doe B. this rap s---s crazy right now. Condolences to his family. Clubs keep lettin guns in the club as if that's not where we as artists work. We got families to go home to, f--- is wrong with y'all." 

Meek Mill added: "R I P Doe B .... I hate seeing s--- like dis!" Drake also wrote an "RIP Doe B" tweet of his own early Saturday.

Doe B's reported death comes just months after another rising star rapper, Lil Snupe, was killed at the age of 18. Lil Snupe died after being shot twice in the torso during an argument while playing video games. A 36-year-old suspect named Tony Holden later surrendered to police.
