Rapper FBG Cash has been supposedly shot dead during a hit and run assault in Chicago while a lady dozed close to him in his vehicle.

Genuine name was Tristian Hamilton, the 31-year-old is said to have been splashed with slugs by an opponent in the early long periods of today.

The assault came about 12 hours before his freshest melody 'Insane Lane' should make a big appearance.

Cash, who was posting on his Instagram about his music hours before the shooting, kicked the bucket in the wake of being hurried to Advocate Christ Medical Center clinic while a 29-year-elderly

person said to have been dozing in a vehicle with him has been left battling for her life in a basic condition from gunfire wounds in her left arm and upper back, as per CBS News.

Police said Cash and the lady had been in the vehicle in the Auburn Gresham area around 5.30am when they were designated.

The female casualty's name is still to be delivered and The Chicago Tribune reports she was dozing at the hour of the assault.

Police say the shooter escaped westward and is currently at large, while devotees of the rapper have overwhelmed online entertainment with accolades and paranoid ideas about the shooting.
