Tomanuel Benson, the younger brother of Memphis rapper Blac Youngsta, was shot and killed on Friday, Aug. 18, in South Memphis.
According to RDC News, a passing car is said to have fired multiple loud gunshots, one of which fatally struck Benson. He was taken by ambulance to Regional One Hospital, where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
“I Love U My Baby Brother Rest Up,” the rapper said, claiming that the world will pay for his murder. “I’m Gone Make The World Pay. I Swear To God. Nobody Safe. Standing Over Everybody. Everybody. 4LIFE.”
In response to the devastating loss, the 33-year-old refused any expressions of compassion. He cryptically stated that he was prepared to take responsibility for any fallout from his future behavior.

“I’m Ready For Whatever Come With This Shit. It’s Ok. Don’t Feel Sorry For Me. I’m Not Gone Feel Sorry For Nobody. Only God Knows,” he continued.
He ended the emotional statement by expressing how the loss of his sibling will affect him going forward.
“Gone Make Sure They FeelMe. I Promise. Life Will Never Be The Same. But God Got Me. I’m The Strongest Man N The World,” he said.
This marks the third sibling the rapper has lost within the last decade due to violence. In 2016, the “Booty” rapper shared the news of his brother Ronnie B’s passing through a Facebook post.
“I MISS YOU SO MUCH LIL BROTHER I SWEAR TO GOD WHEN YOU DIED I THOUGHT ABOUT KILLING MYSELF NO LIE SOMETIMES I JUST WISH GOD WOULD HAVE TOOK ME AND NOT YOU LIL BROTHER,” he expressed.
Then, in 2019, Urban Islandz stated that HeavyChampTD, Blac Youngsta’s older brother and an upcoming rapper, was shot and killed in Miami.
