An up-and-coming Detroit rapper has reportedly shot and killed outside a strip club.

Reports said rapper Dex Osama was killed outside the Crazy Horse strip club on Detroit’s south-west side. WXYZ-TV said the shooting followed an argument inside the club.

Detroit police did not respond to inquiries and the rapper's death has not been officially confirmed. However, the musician had recently been signed to a recording deal by Meek Mill, who posted an Instagram mourning his death.

“I really believed in you and seen you putting on for Detroit. RIP Dex Osama.” it said.

Detroit radio station WDIV reported that after the singer was shot, he ran to a nearby petrol station, asked an attendant to call 911 and then collapsed. He was pronounced dead at Detroit Receiving Hospital.

Reports said police were examining surveillance video from inside the club.
