The shooting/killing of rappers has increased in the last few years and we have reported many similar cases in the last few months. On July 11, we reported the killing of Londre Sylvester aka 'KTS Dre', who was reportedly shot 64 times outside the prison. Last month, we reported that Young Greatness was shot dead during a 'botched robbery', 25-year-old Supa Gates also lost his life in the same manner and there were several theories behind the killing of Pop Smoke. Statistical data of Chicago showed that at least 108 people were shot, 17 fatally, between July 2 and July 4. "Eleven children, some as young as five and six, were wounded in what was the most violent weekend of the year. Two cops were among the city's shooting victims."
In the video that went viral after Indian Red Boy's death, he can be seen talking to his influencer friend and suddenly several gunshots are heard after which he says "Get Help" with blood all over him. In the video, his friend can be heard saying, "What the hell?"
