Louisiana rapper JayDaYoungan shot dead, father injured in suspected ambush

Louisiana rapper JayDaYoungan was shot dead Wednesday in his hometown of Bogalusa, Louisiana. He was only 24 years old.

The rapper, whose real name is Javorius Scott, was shot on July 27 along with a second man, according to Yahoo News.

The Bogalusa Police Department said officers responded to a call about gunshots to find one seriously injured victim and the second was already heading to a local hospital.

The police department added that the rapper died at the scene and a “close family member”, identified as Kenyetta Scott, Sr., was taken to hospital and is in stable condition.

According to TMZ, Scott is the father of the late rapper. He says he and his son were sitting in their front yard when five assailants arrived at their home and started shooting.

A second shooting hours later “may” be linked to the rapper’s death, authorities said.

“JayDaYoungan was a rising star in hip hop. His 2019 album Misunderstood reached No. 43 on the Billboard 200 chart, while his 2020 project Baby23 reached No. 46,” Yahoo reported.

This summer has so far been a rough one for the rap community with several rappers being gunned down across the country.

At least three other rappers have been killed in the past few months alone. On June 5, Atlanta rapper Trouble was shot and killed at age 34, the following week Chicago rapper FBG Cash was killed in a mass shooting in Chicago’s South End, and a few days ago , Florida rapper Rollie Bands was shot and killed in an apartment building parking lot in Tampa.
