It has been a year since aspiring Chicago rapper Joshua “JayLoud” Davis was gunned down in a senseless killing on Christmas Day 2012.
Davis was reportedly murdered following an argument with several men on a CTA bus over his sweatshirt, which bore the picture of slain Chicago rapper Lil JoJo. The men chased Davis off of the bus and shot him several times in the torso and once in the head.
Many affiliates of the Bricksquad camp honored the Davis, including Swagg Dinero, Doogie, Killa Kemo, Lil Flip and Thot Boy rapper VonMar.
Swagg remembered both his brother and Davis in a Twitter post, writing, “#BIP JoJo n Jay Loud.”
Swagg previously reminisced on a music video JayLoud shot for him.
“I remeber folks shot my “Chris Paul” video. Go look it up, He made folks hold da camera so he can get in a shot. Go watch dat #bipJayLoud,” he wrote.
Before his passing, Davis asked Swagg if he could hop on his “Bout Dat Life” track. Swagg posted a screenshot of the IG messages he and JayLoud shared..
“ITS ONLY RIGHT. BIP JOSH JAYLOUDWORLD,” Swagg wrote on the caption of the photo.
Swagg’s manager Doogie honored Davis and additionally called for an end to senseless gun violence.
