YouTube rapper gunned down at McDonald's in Southern California


A man fatally shot Thursday at a Palmdale, California McDonalds has been identified as rapper "The Big Paybacc," whose music videos were popular on YouTube.

From his videos and tweets, and profiles on gang culture websites, he appears to have been affiliated with the Crips gang. From MyFoxLA:

His brother, girlfriend and her family said his real name is Habib Zekajj. His girlfriend, Jessica Jefferson, said the rapper, whose real name is Habib Zekajj and her had been dating for about 8 months and were about to move in together. She said she saw him right before he went to McDonald's. She completely fell apart when she arrived at the scene to learn the bad news which she got from deputies at the scene.
