Young Pappy, an up-and-coming Chicago rapper, was shot and killed early Friday morning in what appeared to be a gang hit.
Just a week earlier Pappy [Shaquon Thomas] had posted the video for his track 'Shooters,' in which he taunted his rivals with lyrics like "You don't even know how to shoot."
If Pappy, who was 20, was feeling that way it may have been because at least twice last year Chicago police believe he was targeted by gunman. In both incidents innocent bystanders died, In one, Pappy was injured.
According to police, Pappy was a Gangster Disciple and the Uptown area of Chicago in which he was ultimately killed has been plagued by turf wars between the Disciples, the Conservative Vice Lords and the Black P Stones.
So far, police don't have any suspects.
As you can see from a few of his videos below, Young Pappy glorified the gangsta lifestyle. RIP.
