16-year-old Chicago rapper DBG Doeskii killed in shooting

Chicago gun violence has claimed the life of another talented young man.

According to Chicago police, 16-year-old rapper DBG Doeskii (born Darnell Fisher) was shot in the chest and arm Saturday night in the city’s South Side around 10 p.m. Doeskii was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center but sadly passed away from his injuries.

“The suspected shooter was taken into custody blocks away in the 5900 block of South Prairie after leading officers on a chase,” reported the Chicago Sun-Times.

The aspiring rapper had two channels that found on YouTube. A more recent one showcasing his latest releases, and another one that really reminds you how young these victims often are. The videos show Doeskii (just one ‘i’ in his name then) playing with his friends in the school yard and other locations just a few short years ago.

Just a few weeks ago he released a high quality music video for his song “Hear Me Out,” a huge step forward for his desire to pursue music as a career. The comments section is now serving as a memorial. You can check out the video below. (Note: Doeskii’s upload of the video has more comments and views, but the version uploaded by director HigherSelfilms is better quality and that’s what we’ve embedded further down in the post.)

Along with Doeskii, two other adults males died in separate Chicago shootings yesterday, ages 28 and 32. Our condolences to the family and friends of the victims.
