Kausion rapper Gonzoe dies aged 45 after Seattle shooting

Friends and colleagues of hip-hop star Gonzoe have identified him as the victim of a fatal shooting in Seattle.

A man was shot just before 8pm on Thursday night in the 2800 block of Southwest Roxbury Street, near Roxhill Park and a Safeway, with authorities converging at a Shell garage nearby. 

The victim was taken to Harborview Medical Centre with life-threatening injuries, with King County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Sgt. Tim Meyer confirming that he died overnight.

While police did not identify the victim, friends of Gonzoe, 45, confirmed that he had died on Friday.

Problem tweeted: ‘RIP GONZOE’, while rapper Crooked I wrote: ‘REST IN POWER GONZOE.’

Quip shared Gonzoe’s song with Richie Rich, The Truth, and tweeted: ‘rip Gonzoe.. His IG posts were inspirational.. My favorite verse he spit right here.. Salute..’

Gonzoe later formed a new group, The Regime, as well as joining Outlawz, the group formed by Tupac before his death.

However, he soon left both groups and concentrated on his solo career.

Gonzoe’s last solo album, Tha Code, was released in 2017, and featured collaborations with C Mob and Daff. 

He also released a six-track EP earlier this year with Cel and Kaydo under the Kausion name, Masters Massacre. 

Metro.co.uk has approached Gonzoe’s reps and King County police for comment.
