BTY YoungN, a 27-year-old New Orleans rap star died from multiple gunshots on Saturday, April 29.
BTY YoungN, real name Desmone Jerome, was shot and killed at a Hollygrove gas station in his hometown. The 27-year-old was found lying near one of the gas station’s pumps and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Fans expected Birdman to be among the first to release an official statement on Jerome, he instead left a photo of the fallen Rich Gang artist on his Instagram account and a separate photo of himself posed in a red, luxury whip.
“#RIP,” he wrote in the caption for the late rap star’s photo. “#GoneButNevaForgotten [BTY YoungN].”
There was no explanation as to why the rest of his flicks were wiped from the account though?
His Instagram account was scrubbed clean of all pictures except two, leaving fans to wonder if the Cash Money co-founder as a prime suspect in some fishy business regarding the young rap artist’s fate.
Since Birdman’s silence, fans have come up with some theories of their own, alleging that his name is somewhere to be found in the orchestration of Jerome’s death.
Until we here something from the police or Birdman, it’s all speculation.
We hope Toni doesn’t get caught up like her Sister Trina did.
