Chicago Rapper RondoNumbaNine Charged With Murder
This is not the sort of “street credibility” anybody needs. Clinton Massey, a 17-year-old Chicago rapper who goes by the name “RondoNumbaNine,” has been charged with murder in the death of Javan Boyd, 28.
Massey is currently being held on $2 million bail.
Reports the Chicago Tribune:
Massey, of the 6600 block of South Honore Street in the West Englewood neighborhood, was one of two gunmen who fatally shot Javan Boyd early on Feb. 22, according to court records and Assistant State’s Attorney Robert Mack.
Massey and an unnamed co-offender drove to the 3700 block of South Princeton Avenue around 4 a.m. that day, looking to retaliate against an unidentified individual for an earlier altercation, Mack said.
Boyd, 28, who worked for a South Side dispatch service, was sitting in his car waiting for a passenger when Massey and the co-offender approached the passenger side door, Mack said.
Witnesses saw Massey and the co-offender shoot into the vehicle with handguns, according to Mack.
Boyd was shot seven times and was taken to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Massey’s fingerprint was found on Boyd’s car and there is also video footage of the incident.
It goes without saying that Massey has no affiliation with Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, whose jersey number is nine.
