Los Angeles-based drill rapper MoneyGang Vontae was killed by a Bronx robbing crew after he flashed cash and jewelry on Instagram.
MoneyGang Vontae, real name Avanti Frowner, posted flashy photos of himself on Instagram while visiting the Bronx, New York with a friend on Thursday. Vontae also dropped his location in his posts.
He captioned his final post, "I got used to counting so much money I got paper cuts!!"
A robbing crew lurking on his timeline tracked him down and followed him into a pharmacy on Thursday.
The goons stripped his clothes off of him, beat him with an umbrella, then shot him multiple times before snatching his prized gold chain with his rap name, "Moneygang Vontae" spelled out in diamond chips.
The shocking crime was caught on the pharmacy's surveillance video.
Police say the crew approached Vontae and a friend inside the pharmacy and asked if they wanted to buy weed. When they declined, the five thugs demanded his gold chain and other personal property.
Store video shows several men piling on top of a nearly shirtless Vontae near the back of the pharmacy, as frightened employees fled down the back stairs.
One thug picked up an umbrella and beat Vontae while another man stripped his pants off of him.
As Vontae crawled behind the pharmacy counter, a robber wearing a white tee and a white durag shot him several times, killing him.
One of the thugs snatched his gold chain off his neck before fleeing the store.
The NYPD released images of the 5 men seen on store surveillance video.
Vontae's friend, who was not harmed, returned to their hotel and told the desk clerk that Vontae had been killed.
Vontae is the latest drill rapper to die from gun violence. On Friday, Chicago drill legend FBG Cash, 31, was shot 13 times and pronounced dead in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood.
FBG Cash, real name Tristan Hamilton, was a member of the Chicago "Fly Boy Gang", also called the Clout Boyz or "Tooka gang." The best known FBG member, rapper FBG Duck, born Carlton Weekly, 26, was gunned down in the city's Gold Coast neighborhood in August 2020.
