Chicago police believe an aspiring rapper's rivals hunted him for 2 days before killing his daughter in a McDonald's drive-thru.

Jontae Adams, 29, and his daughter Jaslyn were in their car in the drive-thru when two men sprayed the car with bullets on Sunday, April 18.

Jaslyn died from multiple gunshot wounds and her father was seriously injured in a shooting, according to THV11 News.

A McDonald's employee who asked to remain anonymous told the Chicago Sun-Times that two men got out of a gray car in the drive-thru and started shooting into Adams' car.

Adams, also known as Tilla, is one half of the Chicago rap due Tilla & Bully Bino.

The day before the shooting, Tilla wrote on Facebook "Opps probably downstairs waiting on me", which is slang for gang rivals are waiting to ambush him.

Police believe the shooting was gang-related. But the Internet says the gunmen wanted part of a $20,000 PPP loan that Adams received recently.

No arrests have been made yet.

Marion County Sheriff's Office

An Indiana teenager was charged Thursday as an adult in the shooting deaths of 4 family members and a pregnant woman on Sunday, Jan. 24.

The Marion County Prosecutor's Office filed murder charges against Raymond Childs III on Thursday morning. He faces six counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and one count of carrying a handgun without a license.

Childs is represented by the Marion County Public Defender's office who entered a plea of not guilty for him at a hearing on Thursday.

Childs, an aspiring rapper, went on a shooting rampage hours after his father chastised him for sneaking out of the house to spend the night with his girlfriend without permission.

Police say Childs first shot his stepmother Kezzie Childs, 42, and his father, Raymond Child's Jr., as they lay in their bed. Childs Jr. pleaded for his life: "I'm sorry Raymond, I love you."

Childs then went from room to room shooting his 13-year-old sister Rita, his 18-year-old brother Elijah and Elijah's pregnant girlfriend Kiara Hawkins, 19.

Kiara, who was 9 months pregnant, was transported to a hospital, where she and her unborn son were pronounced dead.

Another brother, Xavier Childs, 15, managed to flee the home during the shootings. Childs chased Xavier down and shot him twice as he begged for his life.

Xavier said he told Childs: "I can give you forty dollars, please don't kill me."

"He just looked at me and then he shot me on the leg. I fell. He shot me in my arm. And then he tried to shoot me in my head but missed, I guess," Xavier told detectives.

Xavier limped to a neighbor's home and collapsed on the front porch. The neighbor called 911 to report the shootings at 4 a.m.

Xavier identified his brother as the gunman when he was interviewed by police at a hospital.

Hours later, Childs was taken into custody at a relative's home on Burkhart South Drive.

Xavier told police his brother used two different firearms – a 9-millimeter handgun and a mini draco semi-automatic pistol with an extended clip that fires rifle rounds.

The handgun was recovered at the scene. The semi-automatic pistol was found at the relative's home. Police say the guns belonged to Childs' father.

Pastor Kenneth Sullivan Jr, a friend of the family, told WTHR it's possible that the aspiring rapper was "acting out" the things that he rapped about when he coldly shot his family.

"If you're constantly feeding your mind negative things and destructive things, it won't be long before you act upon those things," Sullivan said.

In music videos posted on YouTube, Childs rapped about guns, money, drugs and killing people.

Childs will be transferred from a juvenile detention center to an adult jail to await trial. His next court date is set for April 21.

Indianapolis police Chief Randal Taylor called the killings the largest mass casualty shooting in the city in more than a decade.

Miramar PD

An aspiring rapper and two others have been charged in the "violent and horrific" kidnapping of a South Florida couple.

Rapper Spanish Zanotti, 26 (left), Dionte Alexander-Wilcox, and Antonio James are accused of kidnapping a Miramar couple on Oct. 11 and holding them at gunpoint for almost 24 hours, the South Florida SunSentinel reports.

Zanotti, real name Kejuan Brandon, can go free if he pays $250,000 bond, a federal magistrate ruled on Monday.

But his accomplice, Alexander-Wilcox, was ordered to remain in jail pending trial. A third suspect, James, is scheduled for a detention hearing next week.

Police said the three suspects forced their way into the couple's home and accused the couple's nephew of stealing $20,000 from them. They ordered the couple to pay their nephew's debt in cash.

"This wasn't a couple of hours or a couple minutes," said U.S. State's Attorney Jay Alexander. "This was for a full day. They stayed overnight, ate food, drank their liquor."

A video posted on Zanotti's Instagram page shows him being taken into custody by a violent offender squad on December 18.

Someone captioned the video:

"They took our boy today. We were able to speak to splash and he's staying positive and in good spirits. He wants to let everyone of his fans know that he loves y’all and that we gon get through this together. He wants y’all to post anything positive you can about him right now. They’re trying to paint him for something he’s not and we need to show the world the true light that he is. Free Splash Zanotti #freesplash.

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."

It doesn't take much for McDonald's to fire an employee these days. There's always another job seeker waiting in the wings.

On Dec. 13, rapper DaBaby pulled into a North Carolina McDonald's drive thru to pick up an order. The drive thru employee recognized the rapper and begged DaBaby to listen to his freestyle. DaBaby streamed the freestyle on his Instagram Story.

The former McDonald's employee and aspiring rapper, Mouf, who goes by @therealmouf on Instagram, shared DaBaby's video of his impromptu audition on Instagram, which gained him thousands of followers.

But his manager didn't appreciate the worker spewing profane language in earshot of his customers. After all, McDonald's has a reputation to uphold.

Mouf was terminated from McDonald's on Monday, but his track, "The Messenger" is streaming on all platforms. Was DaBaby worth losing his job over?

WARNING: Video contains excessive profanity.

The 23-year-old Sagittarius won't even speak to a man unless he's a killer. And not just any killer -- he has to be a serial killer.

"Please have at least 3 body's [sic] before you talk to me Boy I like killers," she tweeted on Tuesday.

The Doll's hardcore tweet was a little too gangsta for most of her female followers to relate to.

"I ran over a puppy before- I cried but I'm still a G," wrote one Twitter user.

Another tweeted: "Only thing I killed was 2 gold fishes and a hamster that count?"

A salty man wrote on The Coli: "23 year old hopeless bytch who just like other hoes say that type of shyt until a bullet get lodged in they back."

Asian Doll is still a role model to many of the youth on her timeline.

One girl wrote: "Can you tell us how you can be so confident cause a lot of us younger girls need help with our confidence and being ourselves and not caring what anybody else has to say."

Asian Doll responded that she's launching an Instagram modeling agency in the near future. "One of The reason I'm starting a modeling agency."

Doll is best known for her 2016 mixtape Drippin In Glo, and for showing off her surgically enhanced bod on IG where she has 2.1 million followers.

North performed her own cover of ZaZa's viral hit "What I Do". And while she's only six-years-old, Zaza's parents felt that Kim should have stepped up and given credit to their daughter.

Following the show, ZaZa's parents responded on her Instagram page, writing:

"In July of 2019, ZaZa & her dad went into the studio for the ultimate experience! To finally begin making the music she wanted to make. We take PRIDE in creativity, and believe whether a child’s involved or an adult… creativity deserves RESPECT/homage!

"We love you, North is a huge fan and records in the studio all the time with her dad and is inspired by ZaZa and loves Lay Lay too!

Rapper Pop Smoke and a friend showed off stacks cash hours before he was gunned down inside his rental home early Wednesday.

The 20-year-old rapper hosted a party at his rented Hollywood Hills home at 2033 Hercules Drive in Mount Olympus, Los Angeles police said.

The up-and-coming rapper posted a photo of himself and a friend sitting in a car, apparently flashing $100,000 in cash. Hours later, masked men broke into his home and shot him dead.

The rapper, who was born Bashar Jackson, wore a blue Louis Vuitton outfit in the photos. Blue is the color of the Crips street gang.

Police are working on a theory that someone at the party set Jackson up. Numerous party guests live-streamed the party and posted cell phone photos from Jackson's house on social media.

Blogger @Gossipofthecity tweeted:

"Rapper #PopSmoke posted his location hours before he was robbed and killed. PopSmoke and his friend tagged Beverly Hills but ppl in LA know it’s not. They traced everything from PopSmoke Instagram account and got him."

Celebrities reacted to Pop Smoke's death on social media. "Yo, we gotta do better, man, what we doing? What we doing man? At the end of the day, man, we all kings," said rapper Jeezy. "We not in the jungle, you ain't gotta kill yo' brother to eat."

Jeezy urged social media thugs to "do better" and apply themselves.

Sean "Puffy" Combs gave rapper DaBaby the ultimate endorsement on New Year's Day. Combs, 50, bumped into the "Kirk" rapper outside Club Story in Miami Beach, and told him he was the hottest rapper in the game right now.

DaBaby is best known for his single "Suge", off his debut studio album, Baby on Baby (2019). "Suge" peaked at no. 7 on the Billboard 100 chart. His 2nd album, Kirk debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

DaBaby's meteoric rise to the top of the charts made him one of the top rappers in 2019.

Drake, arguably the rapper of the decade, surprised DaBaby by joining him onstage at the Toronto stop of his Kirk tour last month.

"2018, 2017, I used to watch you rep your city," Drake told DaBaby in a video posted to DaBaby's Instagram account. "I used to watch you love your city, And look, we don't say this to each other enough as rappers but I wanna say congratulation. You're killing this."

The Internet erupted last month after DaBaby's fake sex tape went viral on Twitter.com.

The real sex tape was scrubbed from the Internet after being shopped to the blogs.
