(AllHipHop News) Over the last several months several high-profile shootings involving rappers have taken place in the Miami area. Last October buzzing rapper Bizzle was shot and killed in Liberty City.

The most recent rapper to become a victim of gun violence in South Florida is 20-year-old Kenneth Casilla also known by his rap name Nu Money of Rich Mafia.

Casilla was shot and killed last week in an apartment complex parking lot in Little Haiti.

“He was in a car with somebody he knows and another guy in the back, and my son gets shot and nobody else gets shot,” Kenneth’s mother, Yvette Casilla, told NY1.

Kenneth was originally from Brooklyn, New York, but the young emcee moved to Miami to further his career in music. His mother says that she believes Kenneth was shot because of envy.

“He wasn’t involved in anything,” said Yvette Casilla. “But jealousy, yeah.”

This was very similar to comments made by Young Scrilla’s mother after her son was shot. Quantrel Scott told Miami’s Local 10 that “jealous people” were to blame in Scrilla’s shooting.

Yvette Casilla believes that her son’s murderer is from New York. Miami-Dade police have not identified a motive for Casilla’s killing, and so far no suspects have been named.

A vigil has been created outside of Kenneth’s Brooklyn apartment.

“They took my son. Why?” Yvette Casilla asked. “What did my son do to them to kill him like that?”

No evidence has been presented to suggest that any of these recent shootings are related.

    Dude was kinda nice

  • bigdoe6

    Moved from Brooklyn to Miami and your in Lil Haiti. Not a strategic move if you trying to pursue a rap career. This didn’t have anything to do with jealousy, homie was in the wrong hood and got mixed up with the wrong people.

        bigdoe6 and Brickz – I agree, And – I believe jealousy was motive TOO. – that’s another difinition of “wrong people”

  • ImaFoolBoy

    Mothers of murder victims should never give public statements about what they THINK happened to their son…bcuz they cant possibly look at the situation objectively without placing blame on people who are most likely innocent…In this case, the mom clearly blames the other guys who were in the car with her son bcuz “nobody else got shot”…she should bve happy that nobody else got shot and that no other mothers are grieving the way she is…maybe they didnt get shot bcuz they weren’t the target and her son was…then she goes even further by saying she believes the murderer knows not only knows her son, but knows him from back home in New York??…wtf??

    R.I.P. to this young brother but I get so sick of these mothers acting like their sons are angels, and then u hear their music and its nothin but sex, money,murder and drugs in their raps…these mothers need to grab ahold of these kids when they are younger and instill some morals and values into their character BEFORE it gets to this point…but u cant sit by and let your kids think its ok to be thugs, and then when some thug shit happens to them all of a sudden u cant understand why….smh

    R.I.P to him I actually briefly met this group for a moment in Miami and they all seemed like good people however being associated with a gang or a mafia will put you in that position. Tragedy Nonetheless.
