Rapper Gonzoe Killed after being Shot Multiple Times
Sad to announce that a 45-year-old rapper tragically died. Rapper Gonzoe was killed after being shot three times in the chest near a gas station in Seattle, Washington, before 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 29, 2021.
It appears he was shot while driving. Officers found a vehicle riddled with bullets in the area. The rapper was taken to Harborview Medical Centre, where he died overnight.
Police didn’t identify the victim, but Gonzoe’s friends confirmed that he died on Friday.
Gonzoe, whose real name is Ronald Moore, was a friend of Tupac and Ice Cube. The 45-year-old rapper was a member of the Outlawz and got his nickname from Tupac himself.
He was a member of the Kausion band, a ’90s group gathered by Ice Cube. The band’s album, “South Central Los Skanless,” rose to #37 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums.
Gonzoe was reportedly “working on numerous business deals after the high-profile fight with fellow-rapper Boskoe100, with whom he started a boxing league after squashing their beef.” Both of them got in the ring and fought it out to a drawback in April.

Rapper Gonzoe Shot and Killed
Rapper Gonzoe was shot and killed in the 2800 block of Southwest Roxbury Street, near Roxhill Park and a Safeway.
Gonzoe was active in West Coast Hip Hop for more than 25 years. He was part of Kausion and The Regime and dropped more than 10 solo albums.
The rapper went solo and later signed with Death Row Records, where he became close friends with Tupac Shakur, who had signed to the label in 1995. They went on tour together and collaborated on songs, with Tupac nicknaming the rapper ‘Young Ritzy Outlaw.’
The pair had the same tragic death. Tupac died in 1996 after being shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting by an unknown assailant at the age of 25.
Gonzoe later created a new group, “The Regime,” and joined “Outlawz,” the group formed by Tupac before his death.
