DJ Paul’s Tour Bus Misses Fatal Car Crash ‘By Minutes’
DJ Paul and his road crew narrowly missed a fatal car accident that happened as he headed to Montana as part of his current tour.
On Thursday night (October 27), the Three 6 Mafia producer shared a video of the crash scene on I-90 near Bozeman, MT, where he was scheduled to perform as part of his “A Night With DJ Paul” tour.
The clip, which appears to have been shot by someone on foot, shows the wreckage of two cars and traffic stopped on both sides of the highway to allow first responders to complete their investigation. The crash left two young women dead.
“Our bus missed this crash bY minutes!! Someone drove down the wrong lane and killed everyone,” DJ Paul wrote in the caption.
According to local news station KTVQ, the crash happened at 8:24pm near Belgrade, MT, just 16 minutes away from Bozeman. The crash was caused by 25-year-old Madalynn Raab, who was driving a Toyota Rav4, heading west in the eastbound lane. She collided head on with 18-year-old Brielle Papavero, who was heading east in a Dodge Durango.
Both women were pronounced dead at the scene. There were no additional passengers in either car.
The Gallatin County Coroner’s Office ruled the cause of death for both women to be blunt force injuries.
Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Michael Gray told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that his office had received several calls about the wrong way driver, but had no indication why Raab was traveling in the wrong lane of traffic. Authorities believe she may have been under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
DJ Paul kicked off his 37-city national tour in Seattle on October 22. He will crisscross the country with stops in several states including Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Mexico and Texas, before wrapping his run in Los Angeles on December 22.
Despite being out on the road, DJ Paul still seems to be hitting the studio. On Thursday, Killer Mike delivered his second single of the year, “Talk’n That Shit!,” which Paul produced alongside TWhy Xclusive.
The new track finds Killer Mike delivering three verses over three separate beats, each addressing the recent uptick in criticism following the recirculation of a photo of the rapper with Georgia Governor Brian Kemp.
After calling out his critics and addressing the most recent backlash on the first verse, Mike takes a slightly more menacing tone on the second verse, before making a few strong political statements and comparisons on the final portion of the song.
“I don’t give a fuck if weed ain’t legal if none of my n-ggas ain’t free/ I don’t give a fuck who the president is if the president ain’t for me,” he raps towards the top of the verse, seemingly addressing President Biden’s recent pardon of federal marijuana charges.
He also uses the song to make it clear that he remains unapologetic about anything he’s said in public, with the line: “First rule you gotta understand/ You dealing with a real Black man/ If I said it I meant it/ I meant it like I said it, ’cause I said what I said, understand.”
