AceShowbiz - A member of Chief Keef's Glo Gang has gone too soon. Tray Savage, a Chicago rapper whose real name is Kentray Young, passed away after being shot twice while driving in the Chatham neighborhood on Friday morning, June 19.
Keef's collaborator on 2013's "Chiefin Keef" was shot in the neck and shoulder at around 11 A.M. local time. He was rushed to the University of Chicago Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries. Chicago Police Department did not specifically identify the rapper, but did confirm a fatal shooting of a 26-year-old male on the South Side of Chicago.
The Chicago Sun-Times reported that Savage had just dropped off his girlfriend on South Evans Avenue, the same neighborhood where he lived, when he was fatally shot. Multiple other reports claimed that the vehicle he was driving collided with three cars before coming to a stop after the shooting.
Witnesses at the scene claimed to have seen a white SUV, believed to be a Mazda, speeding away from the site at the time of the fatal shooting. Savage's death is currently being investigated and treated as a homicide, but no suspects are yet in custody.
After his tragic passing, Savage's manager Idris Dykes told HollywoodLife, "Trey Savage was one of the early members of GBE and original members of Glo Gang. Great spirited and always looking for the positive outcome. Was in the process of creating a new album." He added that the late rapper "was a great brother to Keef and the rest of us and dedicated father to his kids and will truly be missed."
Savage was singed to Glory Boyz Entertainment, a rap label founded by Keef. Some of his popular songs, which can be found on YouTube, include "Faces", "Know Who I Am" and "Got the Mac".
