The deaths of Earl Hayes and wife VH1 star Stephanie Moseley have left many shocked and saddened, and now an eerie new detail has emerged: Four years ago the musician rapped about murder-suicide.
According to TMZ, the rapper, who was signed to boxer Floyd Mayweather’s label, released a track in 2010 with some of the lyrics reading, “I could just kill us both, go out with a smash.”
The song “Suicide” suggests that Hayes has been troubled by violent thoughts long before the tragic killings that took place in the couple’s Los Angeles, California, home on Monday.
In the song, Hayes details a chilling scenario, which is similar to what happened to his wife. The disturbing lyrics read:
“Shoot your girlfriend or when you get surrounded by cops.
F*** the real life shoot it out and do your time on the spot.
Make a family crying with your girl and their hearstses.
Take somebody with you who really didn’t deserve it.
Show everybody that life just ain’t perfect.
And when you get mad, it’s time to close curtains,
Cuz this song is for you.”
And this is not the only song that hints at Hayes’ inner turmoil. In another song, “Introducing Hayes,” the rapper says, “I want respect even if I got to die for it. Even if my family gotta stand over my casket and cry for it.”
As previously reported, Moseley had apparently been afraid of her husband and had planned to leave him months before her death, but was too afraid to do so.
