Lil Jay’s associate, Filmon N. Rezene, 25, died from injuries sustained in a May 4 shootout, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Lil Jay, 21, was charged in Rezene’s death along with Rakeem ‘Butta’ Wilton, 20; Roshinda Young, 22; Monique Lane-Calhoun, 25; and Brittany Dupree, 20.
Rezene appeared in Jay’s “Faneto (GMix)” music video.
Rezene was shot in self-defense following an argument with a 22-year-old man in Calumet City. Lil Jay, Rezene and the group allegedly went to purchase marijuana from the 22-year-old man, but an argument ultimately erupted. The group left and returned with a firearm provided by Rezene’s girlfriend Young.
The 22-year-old was shot four times but was also armed and fired back at Rezene, who was struck “several” times, prosecutors told the Sun-Times.
Lil Jay, Young, Lane-Calhoun and Butta were arrested at the scene after police spoke with the 22-year-old victim and witnesses. Police later arrested Dupree after spotting her leaving Lil Jay’s apartment with a bag of handguns, including two used in the shooting.
Rezene died May 15 from his injuries in Stroger Hospital.
Lil Jay is being held on $750,000 bail. Young and Dupree are each being held on $300,000 bail; Butta is held on $250,000; and Lane-Calhoun is held on $50,000. Their exact charges were not immediately known at this time.
Lil Jay revealed in a call with Yella he was going to be charged with murder.
Audio of Lil Jay surfaced onto the net Friday requesting fans donate him $100,000 via his GoFundMe account.
“I’m innocent,” he said. “I need yall to help me raise $100,000, so I can be free. Once I’m free, you’ll have seven free concerts, giving out free food and drinks and I’m autographing t-shirts.”
