25-year-old American rapper Lil Yasa (real name Alexander Mark Antonio) was shot after recording a new track.
On November 28, Valley Care Medical Center reported the arrival of a man with multiple gunshot wounds to police. It was later revealed that it was Lil Yas.
The night before, he was at a recording studio in Marin County, near San Francisco, where he had just finished working on a new track. At some point, he left, telling his friends that he would be back soon.
Not more than an hour and a half later, it became known that Yas had been shot somewhere in the East Bay, which is about an hour away on the freeway from the recording studio.
The rapper's friends still cannot believe what happened, because, according to them, he had no enemies and he did nothing that, in their opinion, would lead to something like this.

On November 28, Pope Francis appointed 13 new cardinals. An African American became one of them for the first time.
Wilton Gregory, 72-year-old Archbishop of Washington, DC, USA, became the first African American cardinal in the history of the Catholic Church.
Gregory was also the only American to be promoted today in the Catholic spiritual hierarchy by the College of Cardinals in Rome.
Among the initiates were also archbishops from Rwanda, Brunei, Chile and the Philippines.
Wilton Gregory, 72, became the highest-ranking African American Catholic in US history.
“It's time to thank God for a unique moment in my life and in the life of the Church in the United States. I hope this is a sign to the African American community that the Catholic Church has a lot of respect, respect and honor for people of my skin color, ”Gregory said in a comment to CNN.
As cardinal, he will be one of the pope's closest advisers and one of about 120 people who, if necessary, will select the next pontiff.
Facebook will launch its own cryptocurrency Libra in early 2021
Libra digital currency will be released in a "stripped-down format". So, if initially it was planned that Libra would be backed by a basket of traditional currencies, now it will be backed only by the US dollar (at a rate of 1: 1).
More currency options will be available at a later date.
The exact timing of the launch of the Libra cryptocurrency depends on the approval of the Swiss Financial Markets Supervision Authority (since the headquarters of the Libra Association - the association of Facebook's Libra project) is located in Geneva.
However, the currency is expected to be launched in January.
The Swiss regulator and the Libra Association declined to comment.
Facebook announced work on the Libra digital currency and payment system of the same name in June 2019. It was planned that it would be a “stable coin” - it would be tied to a currency basket and low-risk securities, rather than to a single currency.
More than 20 organizations, members of the non-profit association, have become partners of Facebook in the creation of the cryptocurrency. Among them were Visa, Mastercard, eBay, Uber, Spotify and others.
