Glo was the second cousin of Chief Keef. He was signed to Glory Boys Entertainment and had recently inked a deal with Interscope Records.
“It’s a lot of crime and violence in Chicago, these rap guys are being targeted, so you know, just trying to get him outside the neighborhood. He’s from the streets,” Glo’s manager, Renaldo Reuben Hess, told the Tribune. “He was basically trying to just get his rap career together because that’s a good opportunity. They gave him some money up front. It was a good chance for him to get himself out the hood.”
