Chicago Rapper RondoNumbaNine Arrested, Charged With Murder
RondoNumbaNine has been arrested and charged with murder in connection with a shooting that occurred in February.
The Chicago Tribune reports that the rising Chicago rapper Clint Massey is currently being held at $2 million bail. “Massey, of the 6600 block of South Honore Street in the West Englewood neighborhood, was allegedly one of two gunmen who fatally shot Javan Boyd early on Feb. 22, according to court records and Assistant State's Attorney Robert Mack.”
The incident is described as an altercation fueled by retaliation. “Boyd, 28, who worked for a South Side dispatch service, was sitting in his car waiting for a passenger when Massey and the co-offender approached the passenger side door, Mack said.” Eye-witness accounts say they saw the 17-year-old MC and the unnamed co-offender shoot the vehicle numerous times with handguns. Mack states Boyd was shot seven times.
Boyd’s family declined to comment for the story. For more information, read the whole thing here.
