37-Year-Old Muslim Rapper Dead After Being Shot In The Head


This is so sad. MacArthur Blvd is no joke
According to NY Daily News reports:
A Bay Area rapper whose music has influenced the West Coast hip-hop scene across three decades was gunned down in East Oakland Monday night.
Dominic Newton, AKA “The Jacka,” was shot in the head at 94th Ave. and MacArthur Blvd. at 8:15 p.m., KPIX reported.
Police do not have a suspect.
The 37-year-old Pittsburgh, Calif., rapper made his debut in 1999 as part of the group Mob Figaz, whose album “C-Bo’s Mob Figaz” reached No. 63 on Billboard’s Hip Hop chart.
Known as a strong writer and for being Muslim, The Jacka released the solo album “What Happened to the World” last year.
We heard a lot of good things about this dude — as a person, not just a rapper. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.
R.I.P. Jacka
