When the Philadelphia rapper Jimme Wallstreet learned Thursday morning of the shooting death of a Louisiana rapper, Lil Snupe, he posted a tribute on his Instagram account.
That afternoon, Wallstreet was fatally shot on the steps of his mother's house in the East Germantown section.
Police said James Davis 4th - Wallstreet's real name - was shot in the groin at 12:47 p.m. in the 900 block of East Church Lane.
At 1:25 p.m., he was pronounced dead at Einstein Medical Center, where he was born 34 years ago.
Wallstreet and Lil Snupe, born Addarren Ross, were associates of the Philadelphia rap star Meek Mill. Meek Mill tweeted Thursday, "#ripwallstreet today just was a bad day!"
