29-year-old Popular Detroit rapper Doughboy Roc of the group Doughboyz Cashout was shot and killed in Detroit on Monday October 9th. Doughboy Roc, whose real name is Rodney Yeargin, was quickly gaining popularity and had a huge following. But even as he got popular, he refused to leave the Detroit he so loved and he showcased the city in most of his songs.
At about 3:30 p.m. on Monday afternoon Detroit police found a man’s body inside a white Hyundai close to an abandoned field at Stoepel Street and Westfield Avenue in Detroit, Michigan. He was reportedly shot multiple times. Authorities found gunshot wounds in Doughboy Roc’s right ear and shoulder. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Doughboy Roc has one son who is named after him. The rapper’s last post on Instagram is a video of him and his mum skating at a roller skating rink. This is significant because his dad was killed in a car crash 14 years ago as he left a roller skating rink. This is the first time he and his mum came back to a skating rink after his dad was killed.
