FBG Duck, an raising rapper in Chicago’s underground hip-hop scene, was shot and killed Tuesday in the city’s flashy Gold Coast community. He was 26.
2 vehicles brought up in front of a shop in the Gold Coast, and a pair of shooters emerged from each auto prior to opening fire on three victims, Chicago Authorities representative Tom Ahern told the Daily News.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office said the rap artist, whose real name was Carlton Weekly, was noticable dead at 5:06 p.m. local time at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Another guy, 36, and a 25-year-old lady were injured in the shooting, which occurred around the corner from Michigan Ave., Chicago’s main shopping road, according to the police.
The 4 shooters repelled after unleashing the shooting actions from Lake Michigan, Ahern said.
FBG Duck broke out in 2017 with a hit single, “Slide,” which earned him an XXL publication profile and made him a rising star on the Chicago rap scene.
FBG Duck grew up on the South Side of Chicago and increased with the Fly Boy Gang, the basis of the very first three letters of his own moniker, according to his Apple Music biography. His bro FBG Brick was fatally shot three summer seasons back.
FBG Duck had built up a following of more than 100,000 on Spotify.
