Belo of Chicago Group Do Or Die, Pleads Guilty to Murder, Gets 10 Years

doordie.jpgDarnell Smith, otherwise known as Belo Zero of the Chicago-based group Do or Die, pleaded guilty on Thursday (October 10) to second-degree murder in the 2002 shooting of Raynard “B-Dog” Pinkston. According to Chicago’s CBS 2, Smith will receive a 10-year sentence under a plea agreement. Prosecutors say the rapper shot and killed Pinkston after warning the man to stay out of a fight that was occurring at 2310 S. State. Earlier this year, Belo’s girlfriend Felicia Hamilton, was convicted of obstructing justice and communicating with witnesses after it was discovered that she offered them $1,000 to change their testimony. “I think it’s a good outcome, and I thank God for it,” said Pinkston’s brother D’Angelo Dixon. “I’m glad that guy got 10 years.” Smith will be formally sentenced on November 8.

    why would you waste your time going into the rap game if you are going to stay out in the streets and sell drugs or kill people. they also messed up by offering only a grand to witnesses people want more money than that

    Free Belo? HAHAHA!!! You commmit the crime, do the time!!! He got his chance, but threw that away by killing another man. I hate when fans try and stick up for these rappers, but do not know their personal life structure. When you see these dick riders wearing “FREE BELO” or something, they’re just promoting more this bullshit. The man needs to learn from his mistake. How unfortunate.

    shit…it goes to show to stay the fuck out of the ickes and the dearborns. you wanna fuck around in the projects, go to the fucking extensions on 35th or altgeld or something. believe me, i used to live in the ickes and i voluntarily moved out because of shit like this. although he did get a good deal. if i fucking got caught on a murder rap, believe me, i’d be sitting in 26th and cal for a minute before they even sentenced me to life.
