A Facebook group set-up in memory of Joshua Ribera, who performed grime music under the name Depzman, now has more than 35,000 members.
Top UK grime artists and producers like Wretch 32 and MNEK have paid tribute to the 18 year-old, who was stabbed to death in Selly Oak last night.
It is believed Josh was taking part in a fundraising memorial at TC's nightclub on Coronation Road.
The event was raising money to buy a gravestone for 16 year-old Kyle Sheehan, who died after he was stabbed in Bartley Green last year.
