Toronto rapper fourty4double0 of Tallup Twinz killed in triple homicide
As if there hadn’t already been enough tragic news to start off 2020, the Canadian hip-hop community took another hit this past weekend with the passing of fourty4double0 of Toronto group Tallup Twinz.
fourty4double0, born Tyronne Noseworthy, was one of three people killed on Friday night at a downtown Toronto condo. The other victims were Jalen Colley, 21, and Joshua Gibson-Skeir, 20, both of Brampton, Ontario. Two other people were also injured.
Acting Det.-Sgt. Henri Marsman of Toronto police’s homicide squad told CBC that there was a party in the Airbnb unit but they’re still investigating the cause of the shooting.
Tallup Twinz first hit the scene a few years ago and were prominently featured on the Northside Jane compilation that dropped in 2018. Despite some legal troubles impacting fourty4double0’s brother, Tallup Twinz carved out a growing fanbase and had forged strong alliances that helped get their name out at a rapid pace. Their songs and videos with artists like Pressa, Burna Bandz, Houdini, Robin Banks and more have racked up millions of streams across multiple platforms.
Most recently, Tallup Twinz appeared on the 6ixBuzz playlist, Northern Sound.
Our condolences go out to fourty4double0’s family and friends.
