15 Most Notorious Unsolved Rap Murders
13. Camouflage (Jason Johnson) ? Died May 19, 2003 – 21
By all intents and purposes, Johnson was on his way to rap stardom when he was cut down. Like most young rappers, Johnson sought to put his life experiences to music, and started his rap career by selling 20,000 copies of “Crime Pay$”, an album he released with the rap group Crime Affiliates. When “I Represent”, his solo album on the independent label Pure Pain, managed to sell well over 50,000 copies, Universal Music Group offered Johnson his dream deal. However, Johnson would be arrested for possession of crack cocaine and Universal would decide not to pick up the option on his contract. He opened for heavyweight rap acts such as 8 Ball, MJG, Scarface, Master P, Ice-T, Pastor Troy, Lil Boosie, Birdman, Trick Daddy, and Ludacris. Johnson was fatally gunned down while walking with his toddler son outside of Pure Rain Recording Studio in Savannah, GA. The man believed to have pulled the trigger is currently serving a prison sentence for an unrelated murder.
12. Stretch (Randy Walker) ? Died Nov. 30, 1995 – 27
On his way home on the night of Nov 30, 1995, Walker, after dropping his brother off at his home in Queens Village, is confronted by two men. It was reported that these two men pulled up alongside his green minivan in a black car at 112th Avenue and 209th Street in Queens Village just after 12:30 am and opened fire on him. Stretch, in an attempt to flee from the gunmen, was engaged in a car chase that ended with him hitting a tree and flipping over after having been shot four times in the back. His murder came exactly a year, almost to the hour, after he escaped injury the night his friend Tupac Shakur was shot and wounded at a Times Square recording studio on Nov. 30, 1994. His unsolved murder is believed to be connected to that Quad Studio shooting of Tupac with no one ever being convicted for his killing.
