Englewood native J Money, born Jerome Wood, tragically lost his life on Labor Day after he was gunned down in the West Woodlawn neighborhood.
It was a devastating loss to the 300 block community with many friends and family taking to social media mourn the 21-year-old soon-to-be-father’s life.
Chicago rapper Capo, a member of the Glory Boyz Entertainment camp, regarded J- Money as his “brother.”
“Up thinking about JMoney He wasn’t my Homie Or my Friend Dat was My Brother Love U Bro #MoneyGangOb4L,” he wrote.
The “Glo Gang” rapper went on to post several imaged of himself with Wood to his Instagram account:
Wood’s death was among a string of shootings to hit the Chi on the holiday. Seven people, including three teenagers, were wounded in separate shootings, according to DNAinfo.com.
Wood’s death represents the grim fate of many urban residents in a city that has been placed under national spotlight due to its high rate of gun violence.
The current homicide toll for 2013 stands at 302. The gun violence in the city continues to climbs with 15 Chicagoans having been murdered since Woods’ death.
No arrests have been made in the Sept. 2 shooting.
