Cash Money Records artist, Young Greatness, was pronounced dead by police who arrived at Waffle House in the 2900 block of Elysian Fields Avenue, at around 1:35 am today (October 29).

Young Greatness, whose real name is Theodore Jones, received one fatal gun shot wound and was 34 years of age. An eyewitness to the murder describes Young Greatness as someone you wouldn’t expect to be murdered like this. “You wouldn’t expect that coming happening with him,” the eyewitness stated, “Dude wasn’t into nothing but his music and his daughter … Wasn’t into nothing else man.” The NOPD are reportedly looking for two suspects and may not have too much trouble finding them since Jones’ car was stolen at the scene.

Jones was born in New Orleans, but moved to Houston after Hurricane Katrina. He signed with Cash Money records in 2017 after releasing the single “Moolah” in 2016 under the Quality Control label. “The first time I heard him, I knew he was going to be big,” Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams said at the time. “He’s got a grasp on melody that few artists have. It’s the sound of the future.”

RIP Young Greatness.
