An up and coming rapper by the name FBG Duck was shot and killed in broad daylight during a drive-by shooting earlier this week, according to Breitbart News.
The shooting occurred in one of Chicago’s luxury shopping district near the Mag Mile, an area that was once thought of as off-limits to gun violence.
The rapper was walking on the sidewalk when two cars pulled up and opened fire.
FBG Duck and his two companions were all shot, however, only Duck was struck fatally.

The CPD reported that four gunmen fled the scene in a black Ford Taurus and a silver Chrysler 300M. Police also believe that the shooting was gang-related.
The rapper, whose real name is Carlton D. Weekly, was allegedly affiliated with the Tooka Gang, a faction of the Gangster Disciples.
Weekly reportedly dealt with violence throughout his life. He was shot in the shoulder back in 2019, and his own brother was killed in a fatal shooting in 2017.
More from Breitbart:
The Windy City has descended into chaos this year with dozens shot and many killed each and every weekend. Even among Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s political attempt to blame guns, the city has suffered a 139 percent increase in murder in July over July from 2019. Lightfoot has attempted to blame what she claims are loose gun laws in neighboring states for the flood of guns in the Windy City. However, the facts do not back her political proclamations.
Breitbart News recently reported statistics from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives that show the majority of guns recovered and traced in Illinois in 2018 were purchased in Illinois.
