Big Moe died of complications from a heart attack on October 14, 2007.A founding member of the group "Woss Ness" with Rasir X and Mista Luv.Trae's trademark is a low deep voice while utilizing a fast flow, somewhat reminiscent of Flesh-N-Bone and Z-RO in the sense multiple vocal layers are often mixed into verses, yet uniquely maintains his own style.
Plus, he precisely balanced the fine line between the underground and mainstream.
Moe's songs were often street-themed, with intoxicants being a prime theme; yet they were simultaneously radio-friendly and hook-laden, with his breakthrough single, "Purple Stuff," being a perfect example.
