The 24-Year-Old Artist From Louisiana Was Shot Several Times Outside Of A Tobacco Shop In Shreveport

On Sunday, December 6, Two Weeks After Signing His First Major Record Deal, Louisiana Rapper Blue Benji Kobe was murdered outside of a tobacco shop. 24 year-old Jacoby Kentae Ware (Bluebenjikobe), was shot several times at around 2p.m. in the 7000 block of Pines Road. He was transported to Ochsner Health hospital where he succumbed to his wounds at 2:52p.m.

According to the local CBS affiliate, the shooting took place in front of a tobacco shop. Two people were reportedly arguing when a car pulled up and opened fire, striking the rapper and another person. Blue Benji Kobe was then taken to Ochsner Health hospital where he fell victim to his wounds. Tragically, Benji Kobe death comes less than two weeks after he signed his first major record deal. His manager Lil Cali revealed this when mourning his death on Instagram, “DAMN BRO!!!!! LESS THAN 2 WEEKS AGO WE WENT TO NYC TO SIGN YOUR FIRST MAJOR LABEL RECORD DEAL.”


“Less than 2 weeks ago we went tp NYC to sign your first major label record deal, when we left the office I told U when U get back home be careful because U at that point in your career when bullshit always seem to happen right when U about to takeoff so lay low and be careful it’s bout to be up,” he wrote. “Now today happened! Fuck!!!!”
