Rapper Big Moe, 33, Dies

HOUSTON -- Big Moe, a Houston rapper whose 2002 album reached No. 3 on Billboard's hip hop charts, has died.

Big Moe, whose real name was Kenneth Moore, was 33. He died Sunday afternoon at Houston's Ben Taub hospital after being hospitalized for more than a week, said Bryan McLeod, a spokesman for the county public hospital system.

McLeod did not release a cause of death, but numerous hip hop Web sites said the obese rapper suffered a heart attack.

Big Moe, who rapped and sang, was a member of the late DJ Screw's rap collective the Screwed Up Click. DJ Screw died of a heart attack in 2000 after a reported overdose of codeine-laced cough syrup.

Big Moe often rapped about the drug and the titles of his first two albums made reference to it. His first album was called "City of Syrup" and his most successful offering was 2002's "Purple World," for the color most often associated with the drug.

Big Moe's top two singles, "Barre Baby" and "Purple Stuff" were odes to the drug. He also released a third album, "Moe Life," in 2003.

"He was a great influence to the music community here in Houston," said Swishahouse Records founder Michael "5000" Watts. "He was a good person and one of the founding fathers of the music movement here."

He collaborated with various Houston rappers including Mike Jones, Z-Ro and Pimp C.

Other Screwed Up Click members who have died are Big Hawk, who was shot to death last year, and his brother Fat Pat, killed in 1998.

Artist: Big Moe
Album: City of Syrup
Title: City of Syrup

[Big Moe]
Well it ain't no plex with the East and the West
With plenty drink for your kids and plenty of weed for your chest
So leave your pistol at home cause we ain't trying to go to war
The common denominator in the sitution
is barre like a star you can shine with
Roll on 20's and smoke pine with me
C'mon and try to leave your mind with me
Steady be sellin, celebratin, for payin our dues
With so much drank in my cup the soda water don't even move
I's a playa can't associate with the plexin
Bone hard, bitch, Mo City, Texas
And a veteran don't get me wrong cause put you a glass
Pour you a glass instead of beating on your ass
Take a chill pill bill
Blow some kill pop the steal
Since we won't ba seen
Sippin syrup till we leave
From the dirty-third coast it ain't no roach a G
So fill your cup up to the brim and have a toast with me

[Chorus: repeat 2X]
All I wanna do, is bang screw
In my dirty-third, city of syrup
Bang Screw

[Big Moe]
Big Moe don steped in (2X)
I done knocked out twins (2X)
Moe-yo comin down I'm throwed
Ballin outta control it's Big Moe
I'ma let you know (2X)
I done let the po 4 (2X)
Can't nobody sip mo than moe-yo
It's Big Moe drank baby
I done came down (2X)
Up out H-Town (2X)
And you know I'm throwed a G
The M-O-E cocked up on three
I'm comin down threw in my day moe-yooooo
Moe comin down made that candy wet moe-yoooo
Said a moeoooo
Big Mow ridin down on chrome
Y2K with my headlights on
Crossin threw the yellowstone
Bout to scoop me a yellowbone
Po six and my stop one
Time for me to pay my phone
Hatta'z better leave Moe alone
In other words just sing the song

"Moore stated that the song Sippin Codeine was his attempt at writing a Beatles song."
