On Friday, saddening word of Chicago rapper FBG Cash’s reported murder plagued the hip-hop community. Just a day later, another artist’s death has arisen in the media as a result of gun violence in New York City.
Local police were contacted about gunfire at Amazing Pharmacy on East Tremont Avenue around 2 PM ET. Upon arrival, they discovered MoneyGangVontae, who had suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.
The recording artist was transported to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. “He look like trouble,” a pharmacy employee recalled to NBC News after the incident.
“I saw that he had a lot of money. They looked like they [were] fighting or arguing, I don’t know. I saw that one of them had a gun. I went back there to the pharmacist screaming, ‘We have to move, have to move, because he have a gun, he have a gun!’”
