dailynews

Rapper Hitman of critically acclaimed Bay Area

rap group RBL Posse, was found gunned down in his car on Sunday (Feb. 2).

While details of the murder are very sketchy,

early reports said that the rapper was found gunned down in his car, after leaving

The Sundial, in the Hunters Point section of San Francisco.

"The shooting of Hitman marks another sad

day in Bay Area rap," hip-hop journalist and community activist Davey D

told AllHipHop.com. "Even sadder is the fact that this is the second member

of the pioneering group RBL Posse to be killed."

Another member of the group, Mr. Cee, was murdered

New Years day in 1996, after he was shot nine times.

RBL Posse, which originally consisted of Mr.

Cee, Black C and Hitman, released their major label Atlantic Records debut Eye

For An Eye as a duo after Mr. Cee was gunned down.

The group grinded for years on the San Francisco

underground circuit.

"Hitman was a cool guy and folks are in

disbelief because it comes at a time when there is a surge in the Bay Area’s

music scene. It’s a sad situation," Davey D continued.

The group released several critically acclaimed

albums and worked with such artists as Spice 1, Rappin’ 4 Tay and Mystikal.
