New Orleans rapper and Rich Gang Member BTY YoungN was shot and killed this weekend in New Orleans’ Hollygrove district as confirmed by New Orleans, Louisiana. BTY YoungN, birthname Desmone Jerome, went viral back in 2016 when he appeared in a video with Birdman featuring the Cash Money CEO and co-founder showing off a gold toilet.
According to multiple reports, the shooting occurred at a gas station around 11:00 p.m. local time. The police report obtained by the New Orleans Advocate confirms YoungN was shot multiple times, and his body was found lying in a gas station pumping area. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
“He was a very uplifting individual,” Glenn Bell, who claims to be BTY YoungN’s cousin, told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “A very positive individual. Very impactful…he’s going to live on.”
