Florida rapper 350Heem has passed away at the age of 25 after being shot and killed outside of his mixtape release party.
According to a report from The Ledger, the Lakeland, Florida native (real name Raheem Bacon) died early Saturday morning (July 29) in a shooting outside of Jade Fox Lounge. A 48-year-old woman was also shot and critically injured, according to police.
Bacon’s family members confirmed his passing to local news station 10 Tampa Bay, with his aunt saying: “It’s a grief I’ve never felt before. You never want to bury your 25-year-old nephew.”
350Heem was celebrating his new mixtape Taking Chances 3, which was released on streaming services on July 22. According to a 2021 tweet from famed record label Motown Records, Heem was signed to the imprint in 2021 amid going viral on TikTok.
However, its website does not currently list him as an artist and TC3 does not have Motown listed as a distributor on streamers.
Jamilah Johnson, 23, has been arrested in connection to the shooting, with a firearm recovered at the scene that was later discovered to have been reported stolen in 2015. Johnson faces one charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. She is being held in Polk County Jail without bond.
The shooter has not yet been identified. It remains an open and active investigation.
