Chicago drill star FBG Duck killed in downtown shooting
Very sad news coming out of Chicago, especially for fans of the drill scene. Earlier today, prominent Chicago drill rapper FBG Duck was shot and killed in a downtown Chicago shooting.
The 26-year-old rapper was rushed to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and was pronounced dead shortly after. Several different sources have confirmed his passing. Two other people were rushed to the same hospital and remain in serious condition.
This is the second time that FBG Duck has been a victim of gun violence since 2018. In June 2018, Duck was shot in the shoulder and his friend Can’t Get Right was killed. In 2017, the rapper’s brother FBG Brick was shot and killed in a shooting on Chicago’s Southside.
FBG Duck is arguably the biggest name from Chicago’s popular drill scene to fall victim to the gang violence that has plagued the city for decades.
A few months ago we took a deeper look at the FBG (Fly Boy Gang) movement, and the major influence Duck had on the drill scene, locally in Chicago as well as internationally. The post included the monumental video for “Chicago Legends,” which famously paid homage to fallen Chicago soldiers, from both sides of the ongoing war between the Gangster Disciple (GD) and Black Disciple (BD) sets. The comments on the video have already been flooded with tributes calling Duck a Chicago Legend in his own right. Truly a huge loss for Chicago and for hip-hop in general. The man was really just starting to take things to another level. His song “Slide” is considered by many as one of the most epic releases in Chicago drill music history.
Just yesterday, I was taking in Duck’s latest release, “Don’t Waste My Time,” which featured Big Homie Maj. His last Instagram post was a clip promoting the video for his feature on the Billionaire Black single, “My Dog.” The post already has hundreds of messages paying tribute to Duck.
Our condolences to the young legend’s family and friends.
