The death of Mo3 shook the rap game, especially in the South. The budding Dallas rapper had already gone viral after massive street singles and a nod from Boosie Badazz. And while his team have worked tirelessly to keep his name alive with the release of Shottaz 4Eva, other rappers who simply enjoyed Mo3’s music contributed to these efforts.

On Friday, the Mo3 camp unveiled a brand new single with Morray titled “In My Blood”. However, it turns out that Morray was not the first choice for recording. Mo3 manager Benjamin Rainwater recently spoke to Street Starz where he revealed that “In My Blood” was created with another rapper in mind – Rod Wave.

“The Morray song actually went on, we did it for Rod Wave,” Rainwater said. Morray has expressed his true appreciation for Mo3’s music in the past. Ahead of the song’s release, Morray visited Mo3’s grave with the late rapper’s son.

“… … dollar,” Rainwater added.

While we haven’t heard Rod Wave’s reasoning as to why the track may or may not have worked, fans have speculated that there has been tension between the St. Petersburg singer and Morray. On Friday Rod Wave shared the deluxe edition of SoulFly including the single “Get Ready” ft. Kodak Black. Some fans have speculated that Rod Wave may have shot Morray.

“The labels used to look behind me, now they’re trying to remake me / Take a big n *** a in the trenches and replace me / Try to duplicate me, it can’t be”, sings it on disk. In addition to the reference to another “fat” rapper, many believed Rod Wave was also referring to Morray’s record, “Trenches”.
