RondoNumbaNine's accomplice received 38 years.
Rondo, born Clint Massey, and his accomplice, Courtney Ealy, were convicted of first-degree murder in May. Ealy has already received a sentence of 38 years. Judge Vincent Gaughan handed down Rondo's sentence during a Tuesday hearing.
On February 22, 2014, Rondo and Ealy drove to a neighboring apartment complex on the South Side with the intention of retaliating after an earlier shooting. They saw 29-year-old Javan Boyd parked in his car and approached him on foot. They shot Boyd seven times, returned to their car, and drove away. Boyd had been waiting to pick up a customer. Rondo's fingerprints were found on Boyd's vehicle, and a surveillance camera partially captured footage of the incident.
Rondo was a 17 years old and an emerging rapper on the Chicago scene at the time of the murder. His "Hang Wit Me" music video has garnered nearly 10 million plays on YouTube.
