The older brother of rapper DaBaby, Glen Johnson, has died by suicide. He took his own life on Tuesday, November 3.

Johnson posted an alarming video on social media earlier in the day, where he was upset and crying. He sat in his car with a gun, TMZ reported. 

In the video, he claimed he had been wronged in the past, and shortly after, sources told the outlet that he was dead. 

"I think five outta five of you motherf****ks think I’m b**********g. I really don’t give a f**k, I don’t," he said in the video. "I’m tired of living."
