FBG Duck: Chicago rapper shot dead on the street

FBG Duck was one of the emerging young artists from Chicago. At the age of just 26, he was shot in the street yesterday. The drive-by shoot took place in one of the better areas of Windy City, on a shopping mile.

FBG Duck: Shot at age 26

The incident is said to have happened according to reports: Duck was shopping on Oak Street with two other people. A good area that also houses some luxury brands' stores. Then two cars are said to have appeared, from which a total of four people got out, who probably immediately opened fire. Other witnesses report that apparently only two men waited in front of the shop where the whole thing happened. One of these men is said to have left the scene after the first shots and fired more shots nearby. FBG Duck was taken to Chicago Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Two bystanders were also injured during the shooting. A woman who was sitting in a car standing by was seriously injured and is currently in critical condition.

FBG Duck was probably known to some for his hit single "Slide". This currently has over 53 million clicks on YouTube. In 2018, Duck released a remix for the song, together with 21 Savage.

Chicago is known for being one of the most violent places in the United States. If one compares the number of American soldiers killed in both Afghanistan and Iraq with the number of people murdered in Chicago, the Windy City even exceeds both theaters of war combined. Relatively high levels of poverty and a pronounced gang culture have probably led to the violence in Chicago spiraling out of control for years. In June, a 20-month-old baby died of gunshot wounds after the mother was about to be robbed. Between June 20 and July 5, a total of nine children under the age of 18 were killed in shootings in Chicago.

This spiral of violence has a magical attraction for many people. The now so successful "Everyday Struggle" host and 6ix9ine-beastDJ Akademiks built his career on covering the violence and gang culture in Chicago. His videos were published under the name "The War in Chiraq", a common trunk word from Chicago and the English spelling of Iraq.

Akademik's comfortable reporting from the sofa at home was not only positively received by artists from Chicago. Chicago's Vic Mensa got into an escalating argument with DJ Akademiks about this fact during a complex interview:

"I wanted to hit you in the face. Honestly. [...] In my eyes, people like you have built a following by sensationalizing things and making fun of situations that are everyday life for us. [...] Why do you think that you have the right to give your perspective that our people are dying every day? "

("I wanted to slap you in your face. Honestly. [...] I really felt, as if people exactly like you sensationalized and made a following off of clowning situtations that we go through in real life. [...] What ever made you feel like you have the right or space to have a perspective, on our people dying on a daily basis? ")
