Another Chicago rap voice was silenced this week when Cedron Doles, better known as drill rapper Shoota Shellz, was gunned down while getting into his car Monday morning in the South Side Auburn Gresham neighborhood.
The 21-year-old Doles was approaching his vehicle at 9:32 a.m. in the 8100 block of South Paulina, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Three men with guns got out of a white vehicle and fired several rounds, striking Doles multiple times, authorities said.
Doles, who lived in the West Side Humboldt Park neighborhood, was pronounced dead at the scene at 9:40 a.m, authorities said.
Shoota Shellz was a drill rapper, who earned some notoriety because his dark, violent lyrics often dissed Chicago gangs and other rappers.
Among his best know songs was “Death of 150,” a diss track aimed at rapper G Herbo which was his first big hit. The video has been viewed more than 500,000 times. Other popular videos included “Real Ones,” “Godfather,” “Pac Man” and “Thought It was a Drought.”
