Man I have been trying to tell people its no joke in Brazil. This video is just one example of how they get down. Shout outs to those who saw City of God. Brazilian funk artist Daniel Pellegrine, known as MC Daleste, is dead after being shot in the abdomen Saturday night while performing in the city of Campinas.
Pellegrine was mid-song when a bullet struck him, causing the 20-year-old performer to fall back in a sitting position before others on stage came to his aid. The incident was caught on video and uploaded to YouTube, where it has nearly 4 million views.
According to Brazilian news sources, the rapper/singer was performing at a public housing building in the neighborhood of San Martin. Police say he died early Sunday after being brought to a nearby hospital.
