An aspiring rapper who filmed videos of himself mocking street gangs for internet clout was found deceased in his car in Lakewood on Sunday.
Los Angeles Sheriff's Office deputies responding to a report of shots fired found the man shot in the upper chest in a car on the 20600 block of Seine Avenue. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The deceased man's name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin. But the internet has already identified him as @BlocckBoyy, a wannabe rapper who spent his days filming Instagram videos dissing gangbangers on their own turf.
The internet was unsympathetic after the news broke of his untimely demise.
One Instagram user wrote: "Tbh that young boy looked like he was dying to be famous, so he did... condolences to his family and people though."
Another user wrote: "Bro moved out here like he was invincible, or suicidal... feel bad for his family."
