The 20-year-old rapper, whose real name is Francisco Ytalo Oliveira de Queiroz, was discovered in a popular seaside resort
Authorities are investigating the death of Brazilian rapper MC Black after he was found dead in the sea and the body showed signs of torture.
The 20-year-old rapper, whose real name is Francisco Ytalo Oliveira de Queiroz, was found dead in a popular seaside resort in Fortaleza on Wednesday, November 24th. According to The Sun, Black disappeared on Monday, November 22, after telling relatives he was visiting Iracema Beach to record new social media content but never returned. However, other rappers who have died this year include VNZA, Supa Gates, KTS Dre, and Mike Darole.

The young talent left the house around 8 a.m. to withdraw cash from the bank, but did not return home, despite telling family members that he would be back in a few hours. As reported by news site G1, concerned relatives were taken to the beach by the rapper’s motorcycle tracker. Witnesses told them they saw two men with sticks force Black into a car. Two days later, swimmers found his body off the beach at Leste-Oeste with injuries from a sharp object. Family members destroyed on the ground told the press that he may have been targeted by criminals for staying in “rival territory”. However, they denied that he was involved in any gangland activities.
However, MC Black’s tragic death was reminiscent of the dramatic incident that led to the death of rapper MC Kevin, who reportedly fell from a hotel balcony just weeks after long-time girlfriend Deolane Bezerra was married. There were rumors that he fell to his death after allegedly hiding from his wife after a threesome. The 23-year-old artist and close pal Victor Fontenelle reportedly had sex with model and escort Bianca Domingues, 26, after getting drunk together. Investigators later concluded that MC Kevin was trying to escape his wife – who he thought was outside – when he fell from his room on the fifth floor on May 16.
Earlier this month, MEAWW covered the death of Young Dolph, who allegedly had multiple feuds with rival rappers from Soulja Boy to Yo Gotti and Blac Youngsta, before he was shot. The 36-year-old rapper, whose real name is Adolph Robert Thornton Jr., was fatally shot and killed at Makeda’s Cookies in Memphis on Wednesday afternoon, November 17. “The tragic gunshot death of rap artist Young Dolph is another reminder of the pain that violent crime brings,” said Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland. It wasn’t the first shootout that Young Dolph was killed in after being hospitalized for two weeks after a shooting in 2017. Young Dolph has been in the rap scene since 2016 when he became known with his debut album “King of Memphis”.
And in August, we reported how teenage hip-hop artist YNT Juan was found dead in a parked car in Hartford, Connecticut. The 17-year-old rapper was reportedly shot and killed on August 8 in the same neighborhood. YNT Juan recently released a single called “Power Remix” and was busy promoting it on social media. The late rapper had also released other singles such as “Snakes”, “Detroit”, “Watch How I Flex” and “Deady”. Juan’s life has been shortened by gun violence – a worrying trend that has also resulted in the deaths of celebrity rappers like Mo3, Hot Boy Ju, King Von, and others in recent months.
