Big Moe of Houston’s Screwed Up Click Passes Away Following Hospital Stay

Houston rapper Big Moe, 33, of the late DJ Screw’s Screwed Up Click, passed away while at the Ben Taub Hospital in H-Town on Sunday afternoon (October 14). According to the Associated Press, Big Moe, whose real name was Kenneth Moore, had been admitted to the hospital over a week ago for an unspecified ailment. Although a spokesman for the county hospital system did not disclose a cause of death, rumors have circulated over the past week that Moe suffered from a heart attack, possibly brought on by his affinity for “syrup.” The popular drink, also known as “drank” or “lean,” is a popular concoction that includes codeine or promethazine laced cough syrup. “He was a great influence to the music community here in Houston,” Swishahouse Records founder Michael “5000″ Watts told the AP. “He was a good person and one of the founding fathers of the music movement here.” DJ Screw, founder of the Screwed Up Click and an early proponent of the “syrup” movement, died of a heart attack in 2002.

    Yo, that fool had a heart attack because he was FAT, not because of the lean. I am sure it didn’t help but that fool was huge and probably didn’t excercise. His only cardio was reaching for a slice of pizza.

    Yo….real talk, all the disrespectful comments on here have me sick to my stomach!! WTF is WRONG with ya’ll?! This man has just DIED. I don’t care if he weighed 1,000 pounds, you don’t type things like “he died cause he was fat”. If his song ‘sucked’, what you even in here postin for? How immature. I pray no one in his family sees your public display of ignorance. Ever hear of..”if you can’t say nothin nice then don’t say a d@mn thing”? What if someone typed that about you? Yeah yeah yeah…I know what your gonna say. I’m not fat, so there! I eat salad so I’m a winner!” waaah wahh wahh. Not cool you guys. Now that I’ve scolded the KIDS, let me say: Ya’ll niggas slow it down on the syrup…real talk. That stuff is dangerous & we don’t need anyone else dying! Much respect and love to the entire Moore family and the city of Houston. Another great one lives in the sky. R.I.P. Big Moe S.U.C Click Baby!!

  • THA WEATHERMAN

    Big Moe was one cool dude. God forgive yall for those negitive comments about him. Just because he took drugs does not mean he doesnt deserve to be recognized. He made a huge mark in screwed up music and was a good person also, from what I’m told. R.I.P. big homie.

  • ri067953

    Yo, sounds like there are a bunch of sensitive fat dudes up in here. The reason his weight is an issue is because it was a the primary cause of his death, not the drugs he ingested.
