STOCKTON, Calif. (BCN) — A Stockton-based rap artist was slayed in a shooting Friday morning in Manteca, police said. Officers found 29-year-old Manteca resident Disean Victor, also known by his musical name Young Slo-Be, suffering from gunshot wounds at 8:17 a.m. in the 100 block of Trevino Avenue.
Authorities said they performed live-saving measures on Victor until he was taken to a hospital, where he later died from his injuries, according to police.
Police said the shooting does not appear to be a random act, though they will not be releasing any further information.
Thizzler On The Roof, a hip-hop and rap music video platform, said it was an honor to work with Victor, and they were heartbroken to say goodbye. They said he was a rising star in a statement on their website.
Thizzler said Victor’s work ethic and care he put into his craft is what took him far. The 29-year-old artist saw the most mainstream success with his song “I Love You,” with 19.6 million streams on Spotify and 19.6K videos using the sound on TikTok. He gained a cult following over the years with his “strong catalog” he leaves behind him, the music platform said.
