Only weeks after posting a music video where he gloated about the deaths of rival gang members, US rapper FBG Duck has been gunned down and killed in broad daylight while shopping in a boutique shopping precinct in Chicago.
In early July, FBG Duck (real name Carlton D. Weekly) dropped a music video for 'Dead Bitches' that included what Chicago Police labelled as "derogatory statements" about slain members of the rival Black Disciples gang.
Weekly was aligned to the Tookaville faction of Gangster Disciples according to the Chicago Tribune – named after member Shondale 'Tooka' Gregory, 15, who was killed in 2011 (when FBG Duck was only a teenager).
In the song, FBG Duck mentions rival gang member Odee Perry, 20, who was gunned down months after Gregory's murder.
One section of the expletive-laden video includes the lyrics: 'Said I wasn't gon' diss the dead and okay, I did it. But n...., f... T-Roy and Odee, them dead bitches.'
Those responsible for the attack (Tuesday local time) had managed to track Duck's whereabouts because the rapper had been live-streaming his travels.
Only days prior to his death, FBG Duck had signed a deal with Rap-A-Lot Records.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot described FBG Duck as "an individual who fancies himself a rapper but is also a member of a gang".
