This is the shocking moment a rapper was shot dead while performing on stage.

Mobile phone footage shows MC Daleste suddenly collapsing after he takes a bullet in the abdomen.

The video shows the rapper—real name Daniel Pellegrine—suddenly recoil then slump to the ground. {snip}

The 20-year-old Brazilian star died in hospital shortly after he was shot during a free gig for 3,000 fans in Campinas, 50 miles north of Sao Paulo, on Saturday.

New York-based DJ Béco, who is from Sao Paulo, said: “This is one more sad event in a long history of urban violence in Brazil.

“Music should be the peaceful medium that connects us all for good times and for change.”
