Bay Area Rapper Lil Yase Murdered

Lil Yase

Another life taken too soon.

Unfortunately, the cycle of gun violence leading to the loss of another talented artist has repeated itself. Up-and-coming Bay Area artist Alexander Mark Antonyyo Jr., known professionally as Lil Yase, was tragically murdered this past Saturday. The shooting was reported to have taken place on the 5100 block of Iron Horse Parkway in Dublin, CA.

Law enforcement arrived around 1 a.m. to the Valley Care Medical Center in Pleasanton, CA, to the report of someone being shot and was suffering from multiple gun shot wounds. Yase was eventually transported to the Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley, CA, and was later pronounced dead after succumbing to his wounds.

Something about this case does not exactly add up though. Police say that they found what “appeared” to be a crime scene and have currently found no suspects. Also, they are asking anyone in San Francisco area who knows anything about the murder or has leads, to come forward and help provide justice for the family. Prayers go out to the family and anyone affected by the situation.

His label is mourning the loss.

Lil Yase was signed to Highway 420 Productions, an independent label. In the Instagram post above, you can see that they are currently in mourning of the loss of their rising artist and want the fans to help report his newest song, “Top Dog”, on their Instagram stories. Fans were showing their support in the comment section.

He was known for his unique voice, where he sounded like he was rapping effortlessly and had a way of gliding on the beat. The instrumentals he rapped on had a lot of bounce, snare rolls, and good bass. His hooks were about the street life, and his lyrics tended to be on the more violent side, depicting how rough the streets truly can be.

What is even worse, this is not the first Bay Area rapper who has been shot and killed this year. Richmond, CA rapper Tay Way was sadly gunned down earlier this year.
