Blu Cantrell

'Hit 'Em Up Style' Singer Hospitalized After Ranting

... I Was Poisoned!!

9/3/2014 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0903-blu-cantrell-tmz-01Singer Blu Cantrell went running through the streets, ranting about people trying to kill her last night ... until police took her into custody for psychological evaluation ... TMZ has learned.

Cantrell went seemingly berserk in a Santa Monica neighborhood around 2 AM on Wednesday. Witnesses tell us she was screaming about someone giving her "poisonous gas." The episode went on long enough that someone called police.

We're told when officers arrived, Blu -- famous for her 2001 hit "Hit 'Em Up Style (Oops!)" -- played the "do you know who I am card" ... but also referred to herself as a "one hit wonder."

Law enforcement sources tell us cops took Blu to a nearby hospital where doctors checked her out. We're attempting to reach a rep to get an update on Blu's condition, but so far ... no luck.

Sad. She has a beautiful voice, way better than Beyonce. Check out some of her music. It's a shame, such talent wasted.

Reminds me of years ago when they found Margot Kidder. She's clearly got some problems.

The "Do you know who I am" card wouldn't have worked with me even in 2001. I've never heard of this kook or her song.

It's paranoid psychosis. Hopefully her family can keep her under care for long enough so that the meds can stabilize her condition.
Get better girl!
