JayDaYoungan ultimately died just before midnight, police said. The rapper’s relative remains in stable condition.

“This is a very fluid situation. Our officers are working diligently to identify the subjects responsible for these crimes,” police said in a statement.

Cops said another shooting happened about 30 minutes after the one involving the rapper. Officials said it was possible the shootings were linked.

JayDaYoungan leaves behind a young son, according to his social media posts.
Just hours before his untimely death, the rapper posted a video on Instagram showing a child believed to be his son.

The rapper landed a music deal with Atlantic Records in 2017. According to his bio on Pandora, he gained popularity with “Spinning” and “Taking Off.”

His career saw him collaborate with artists including Lil Durk, Lato, and Moneybagg Yo. He released his debut album “23 Is Back” in June 2021. His mixtape “Forever 23” and first official studio effort “Baby23” both charted on Billboard.

He racked up over 1.2 million subscribers on YouTube and boasted a whopping 2.7 million followers on Instagram.

The shooting comes just one month after he was released from jail for gun-related charges.

In October 2021, he was caught carrying a pistol he was not permitted to be armed with as he was simultaneously facing assault charges in Texas, as well as illegal possession of Oxycodone.
He was out on $175,000 bond at the time after being arrested in September 2021 on suspicion of being an accessory to second-degree murder.

It is still unclear whether the rapper was connected to the shooting.
He was sentenced to five years in jail for the gun charges, however, was released last month and credited with time served.
