The Streetz are Talking about the Death of Bankroll Fresh

The “Ballin Like a Hot Boy” Superstar was def taking the industry by storm. As much as we hate to say this, but it is no surprise that a Hater chose to Hate and end the young rappers life early for no reason.

It was reported earlier today by Precise Earz online:

After Bankroll Fresh was murdered out side of Street Execs studio over the weekend, new claims have surfaced on the internet net alleging that Rapper No Plug Killed Bankroll Fresh. Sources have confirmed that Bankroll Fresh & No Plug did have a physical altercation which ultimately lead to Bankroll Fresh’s death.

“Well I just wanted to let you all know what exactly happened. The homicide was between street execs artist Skully (aka No Plug) and Bankrollfresh) . A fight took place in the studio and they ran off with bankroll’s gun . He chased them and when he got outside they started firing at him . There were soo many gun shells because both sides were firing shots outside.” – Instagram

We placed a phone call and here is what has us shocked. It was told that Bankroll Fresh whipped the shytt out of No Plug. Chile , the said by the time Bankroll was done, No Plug had to find a Plug. As the chase began it gets very grey as to the massacre of Bankroll Fresh.

If both sides was shooting, why is Bankroll the only one deceased?

If this was so random, why does it seem so well executed?

Why didn’t anyone help Bankrolls Brother?

If one nigga would have help me stop that fight my lil brother would still be here 😭😭😭👌👌💯💯💯

Street Money C-Note let it be known, all someone had to do was help him and his brother would still be alive.

This is why no one has a Studio in the Atlanta anymore. Most are now on the outskirts of the city, according to a #TSB Insider. It has been said that the studios that have been in the Atlanta Metro area are targets for violence.

Our condolences go out to the family of Bankroll Fresh, we had the pleasure to meet him once and he was so humble and full of life. He was a young man on a mission. A mission of Greatness.

On another note, who snitched on No Plug???
