CALIFORNIA rapper Indian Red Boy was filmed smiling and laughing on Instagram Live just seconds before he was fatally shot last week.
Police said he was shot in the head three times on July 8 in a targeted walk-up shooting.
The 21-year-old artist – real name Zerail Dijon Rivera – was shot in the head three times as he sat behind the wheel of his car in the city of Hawthorne.
Some people online suggested that Indian Red Boy may have been shot for allegedly defacing a Nipsey Hussle mural in Los Angeles.
However, an insider recently said that had nothing to do with his death.
On Tuesday, someone on Instagram claimed Indian Red Boy was shot because of girl drama and because he switched gangs, according to Hip Hop DX.
“I’ve been looking at these videos and shit, right?” the man says in the clip.
“Been looking at big homies, OGs from the land talking about, ‘Yeah that was payback for Nipsey Hussle.’ All this other good shit. Y’all n–gas really believe that? For the OGs that’s on YouTube or on some type of platform on camera saying that shit, do y’all really believe that? And some of y’all OG Crip n–gas that’s from the land sayin’ this shit not even from ’60s.
“What happened was him and his n–ga was both f–kin’ on the same Thotiana. She gets around. They pass her around and his homeboy even tossed him the b-tch.
“It was said by that female that Zerail was talkin’ real greazy about his partner, basically pillow talk. The female went and told Zerail’s partner and said, ‘Blood sayin’ this that and the third about you.’ So that’s when homie went and approached Zerail.
