Blac Youngsta and his family were hit with tragedy recently, after it was revealed that the rapper's younger brother was the victim of a deadly shooting. The murder of Tomanuel Benson took place at a gas station in Memphis last week, leaving police searching for who's responsible. According to witnesses, a man in in a passing vehicle was the shooter, but authorities had yet to zero in on a suspect. Now, however, Memphis Police have a very clear image of who they believe could be behind the attack, meaning that they're closer than ever to bringing him to justice.

Sadly, this wasn't the rapper's first time losing a sibling. Blac Youngsta lost his brother Ronnie B back in 2016, as well as his other brother HeavyChampTD in 2019. Following news of Benson's passing, he took to social media to share a message about the loss. “I Love U Baby Brother Rest Up,” he wrote. “I’m Gone Make The World Pay. I Swear To God Nobody Safe. Standing Over Everybody. Everybody #4LIFE. Gone Make Sure They Feel Me I Promise. Life Will Never Me The Same But God Got Me. I’m The Strongest Man N The World.”
