Big Paybacc has been shot dead at a Los Angeles McDonald’s restaurant.
The 38-year-old rapper was targeted by a man who’d walked into a Palmdale fast-food restaurant and fired at him several times from close range with a handgun.
Big Paybacc was affiliated with former G-Unit artist Spider Loc, who was discovered by Suge Knight.
His 2011 track Gangsta Luv was based on LA’s gang culture and has been watched more than 250,000 views since it was released.
The shooting in Palmdale, about 35 miles north of Los Angeles, happened with about 15 people inside the restaurant, where Big Paybacc was eating lunch.
The LA County Sheriff’s Department said: “It appears to detectives… that this was not a random shooting.”
It identified the person shot inside the fast-food restaurant as Habeeb Ameer Zekajj, who is also known as Big Paybacc.
Sheriff’s deputies found Habeeb Ameer Zekajj with multiple gunshot wounds and detectives say they are still looking for the gunman.
Jessica Jefferson, a woman who identified herself as Big Paybacc’s girlfriend, told local television station CBS2 that he had three children.
