FBG Cash was reportedly shot and killed early Friday morning in Chicago.

Per a report from regional outlet WLS-TV, a 31-year-old man was fatally shot while inside a vehicle in the 1600 block of West 81st Street. A woman who was also inside the vehicle at the time was shot as well, with the report stating she was transported to a nearby hospital in serious condition.

An investigation is ongoing.

In a recent interview on the Drea O Show, as seen below, Cash reflected on mortality and offered some candid remarks about what he had overcome in his life to get to where he was at 31.

“So much malicious shit going on in the world and I still overrode it,” he said at the time. “I weathered the storm with all that shit. I don’t think it’s in my cards. I really don’t. … I think I’m gonna die of old age.”
