A Los Angeles-based rapper affiliated with Atlanta’s Brick Squad label was shot and killed in Inglewood, California on Thursday, November 3.
According to the L.A.Times, 26-year-old RoseMo700 (born Jomo Adoula Zambia) was driving a red BMW in Inglewood around 2:30 pm, shortly after dropping his girlfriend off at work, when it was shot at. RoseMo was hit in the arm and torso, and continued driving, speeding through a red light and smashing into an unmarked police car.
RoseMo succumbed to his injuries later that day, while the officer was listed in stable condition Thursday.
Officials are investigating the shooting. RoseMo made headlines recently when he posted a video on World Star Hip Hop claiming that he was the one who knocked out L.A. rapper The Game at an L.A. mall.
Then more recently, RoseMo was caputured in a clip where he is seen fighting L.A. rapper Boskoe1 while his friend rapper 2Eleven of Young Jeezy’s CTE label, films and comments about it.
Both altercations stemmed from arguments that began on Twitter, involving RoseMo’s childhood friend Ice Burgundy, an L.A. rapper affiliated with Waka Flocka’s Brick Squad label.
Police told the Times that The Game is not a suspect in the case, while Waka Flocka’s publicist told L.A. Weekly that Waka had no affiliation with RoseMo, but has worked with Ice Burgundy in the past.
RoseMo is survived by his 3-year-old daughter.
