Rapper Tay Way Shot Dead In Drive-By After Posting Video Of His Location
Richmond Rapper TaY WaY Dead After He Was Shot & Killed In Drive-By Shooting
Another fast rising rapper was shot dead in Richmond, California last week after sharing his location on social media. Lamonta Butcher, popularly known as Tay Way, was reportedly murdered in a drive-by that took place on a busy street corner.
Acccording to reports, Tay Way revealed his location after posting a video of himself standing in front of a liquor store. Few minutes later, a car pulled up and opened fire on the rapper.
Although the rapper didn’t show any street signs, the buildings in the video were distinctive. “Been so long we still out here bruh, you feel me? Same hood, same turf,” Tay Way said in the clip.
He was a good man,” said Kiana, a person who told reporters she was a childhood friend of Tay Way. “Just because his music portrayed him different, he was [good], he watched the kids and everything, like, he was really so sweet.”
Authorities are currently carrying on investigation and are yet to share any information about possible suspects, but the slaying once again strikes fear in the rap arena.
Tay Way’s death is similar to the murder of Pop Smoke, back in February, who was killed in a home invasion after accidentally sharing his location on social media.
