RondoNumbaNine likely won’t see freedom for the next four decades, but Hip Hop is still keeping his name alive.
Future name-dropped the “RN4L” rapper in his “Spin The Block” record with Lil Durk.
Future raps, “Baby gangster, get it how you live/RondoNumbaNine, get you out of here.”
On Tuesday, July 5, 2016 RondoNumbaNine was sentenced to 39 years in prison for the 2014 murder of cab driver Javan Boyd. Two days later, he was transferred to Menard Correctional Center in Menard, IL to serve his time.
Rondo was found guilty of the Feb. 22, 2014 slaying in March.
Prosecutors say Cdai and Rondo were part of a three-car entourage riding through enemy territory looking for revenge due to an earlier altercation with an unnamed party, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Rondo and Cdai allegedly sighted Boyd sitting in his vehicle and pulled their vehicle alongside his.
The two allegedly went to Boyd’s passenger door and asked if he was from the neighborhood. When Boyd replied he was from the neighborhood, Rondo and Cdai opened the passenger door and opened fire, according to the Tribune.
Boyd was reportedly shot seven times in all, including, twice in the back and three times in the leg, according to the Sun Times.
Rondo and Cdai allegedly rushed back to their vehicle and all three vehicles fled the scene.
Cdai is reported to have dropped his cellphone at the scene before he and Rondo returned to their car and the group drove away, prosecutors told DNAinfo. Chicago Housing Authority surveillance cameras reportedly caught the shooting on video. Police also recovered Cdai’s fingerprint on the window of the car.
