As of the time of writing, Future has not made any remarks on the passing of his artist.

Recently, tragedies seem to follow rappers in Chicago.

Lil Tuda, a 14-year-old drill rapper, was shot and died in Chicago in June.

Lil Tuda (actual name Timothy Lockhart) was shot in the head on the West Side of Chicago around 4:45 pm on June 17 in the 100 block of South Homan Avenue, said ABC 7 Chicago. In Chicago’s Stroger Hospital, he was declared dead.

Together with Lil Tuda, another 14-year-old child was shot numerous times and sent to the same hospital.

The incident, which included both adolescent boys and happened during Father’s Day weekend and the Juneteenth holiday, was a tragedy, according to Chicago neighborhood organizer Andrew Holmes.

“I’m not happy at all,” Holmes began. “Father’s Day, Juneteenth, celebrating for what? Until we can stop this gun violence, Black-on-Black crime, and get these individuals in custody, then talk to me. But, we got two babies, two babies here.”

“So, how are their fathers going to be happy? How are their mothers going to be happy? How is this family going to be happy? It’s wrong. Turn these individuals in.”

The DMG (Dirty Money Gang), which is made up of a group of Gangster Disciples and Black P Stones, is said to have included the Chicago drill rapper.
