RoseMo700, an affiliate of Waka Flocka’s Brick Squad Monopoly, was gunned down in Los Angeles on Thursday (November 3) while on his way home.
According to the L.A.Times, The 26-year-old (real name: Jomo Adoula Zambia) was driving a red BMW in Inglewood around 2:30 pm, shortly after dropping his girlfriend off at work, when it was shot at. RoseMo was hit in the arm and torso, and continued driving, speeding through a red light and smashing into an unmarked police car.
Both he and the police officer — who had to be extracted from his car with the jaws of life — were rushed to a nearby hospital. RoseMo succumbed to his injuries later that day, while the officer was in stable condition Thursday.
Officials are investigating the shooting, and said they had no information surrounding the circumstances as of press time. Inglewood police are asking that anyone with information call the tip line at (888) 412-7463.
However, a lot of things have unfolded online in the last several weeks, in regard to conflicts RoseMo had with others around Los Angeles.
Back in mid-September, RoseMo made headlines across hip-hop blogs when he and Brick Squad recording artist Ice Burgandy detailed an alleged run-in with L.A. rap star The Game, which they claimed ended with Game being knocked out at a Los Angeles shopping mall. Then more recently, days before his tragic death, RoseMo surfaced on blogs again, in a clip where he is seen fighting local rapper Boskoe1 while his friend, CTE rapper 2Eleven, films and comments about it.
Both altercations stemmed from arguments that began on Twitter, involving RoseMo’s childhood friend Ice Burgundy, an L.A. rapper affiliated with Waka’s Brick Squad label.
Police told the Times that The Game is not a suspect in the case. “Our investigation is leading us in a different direction,” Police Detective Gabriel De La Torre said.
It’s unclear if his previous beefs on the Internet contributed to his death.
Waka Flocka’s publicist told the L.A. Weekly that he had no affiliation with RoseMo, but has worked with Ice Burgundy in the past.
RoseMo, 26, is survived by his 3-year-old daughter. His family and friends are planning to hold a vigil for him in Inglewood on Saturday (November 5).
