Up and coming rapper FiF Money [Charles Smith] was shot to death by Chicago police early Sunday morning in the childhood home of Bulls' superstar Derrick Rose.
The police were responding to a "person with a gun/home invasion" in the Englewood neighborhood at 4:40AM when they were met by FiF, who was armed.
Gunfire was exchanged and FiF sustained fatal injuries. Police say FiF and his girlfriend Breanna Patterson had broken into the home to seek revenge on a man who they thought had robbed them.
Patterson is now facing charges of first degree murder because she was involved in a crime that led directly to a death. (FiF's killing by the police.)
FiF had rapped about the violence in Englewood in his track 'Get in Line.'
"I live in Englewood. This bitch a fucking forest 'cause everything around me is like fucking poisonous," Smith rapped. "And if I get bit, I hope I heal quick, and a Tommy gun is what I spray them bullets with."RIP.
