INDIAN Red Boy – 21-year-old Zerail Dijon Rivera – was shot in the head three times as he sat behind the wheel of his car, according to reports.
Some people online suggested that the rapper may have been shot for allegedly defacing a Nipsey Hussle mural in Los Angeles.
Fellow rapper The Game also dropped a lyric for a rap posted on Instagram that many took as a reference to Indian Red Boy’s “disrespect” of Hussle.
The Game rapped: “We got more drakes than the Billboard/Disrespecting Nip, the type of shit you niggas get killed for/We not gon’ stand for the disrespect/Get this .45 Bell pressed against your neck.”
But The Game later clarified that the coincidence was “bad timing” and claimed he would “rectify the situation” with Red Boy’s family.
“Number one, I ain’t mean no disrespect to Indian Red Boy, R.I.P., his family, anybody close to him and definitely not the Inglewood families at all or no Blood set in L.A. or none of that shit.”
He accompanied the statement with a $5,000 donation to a GoFundMe set up for Indian Red Boy’s family.
