The Houston rap community is mourning the loss of Dominic "Clip D" Brown who was shot and killed early Friday morning outside of Breakers after-hours club (9600 Bissonnet). Brown, 34, belonged to rapper Trae Tha Truth's ABN camp, and assisted Trae in giving out food to the needy on Thanksgiving Day.

Together they gave away 300lbs of turkeys and 80 cakes, as well as loaves of bread, bottles of water, and jackets to dozens of families around the Houston area.

According to HPD, at approximately 5:30am, Brown left the club and was sitting in his vehicle when an unknown gunman approached him and opened fire. He was taken to a local hospital but doctors were unable to save his life.

Rocks Off first learned of the news when rapper Bun B tweeted "Damn. Cold Blooded. RIP Clip. ABN." on Friday morning. Trae followed with "Can't believe my brother is dead... #RipClipDABN."

Anyone with information regarding this case should contact the HPD Homicide Division by calling (713)308-3600 or Crime Stoppers (800)222-TIPS.

The candlelight vigil to show respects for Clip will be held from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. this Wednesday at Alief Amity Park (12509 Alief Clodine Road).

Rocks Off extends our deepest condolences to Trae and the rest of Clip's family and friends.

Rest In Peace, sir.

RIP Money Clip D.... my prayers to the Brown family, Trae and all of ABN keep your heads up.  God does everything for a reason and this is no different.  I know it always seems like he takes the good ones home, but there is a reason.  Don't let Clip's passing slow anything down.  I had only met him a few times mostly at the basketball courts on Highland Knolls, but he was one of the nicest, realist, and most athletic Big Lil Dudes I have ever met he was hooping out there!  I can tell he really loved his kids and all the other little ones he would bring with him to the courts in Trae's Street King Van.  He would always have some cd's posters or whatever to give to me and my homie.  My homeboy is the wingman at some of the clubs ABN would be at and Clip D and Jayton always showed love he would even go recommend the wings to other club goers. He will ONLY be missed NEVER forgotten.  He left a good impression on my heart and I'm sure countless others.
