After being shot several times outside of his wife's Vallejo, Ca apartment complex, 25-year-old rapper Johnny Ca$h recently succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds.
According to reports from the Vallejo Times-Herald, Ca$h (born Johnny Castaneda, Jr.) died on Thursday (March 29) at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek after being on life support.
Originally a native of Richmond, Va, Ca$h, also know as "Tha Fast Gunna" made a name for himself as part of the Bay Area hip-hop scene and was signed to Andre "Mac Dre" Hicks' Thizz Entertainment imprint. Mac Dre was also a victim of a still unsolved shooting when he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting on Kansas City's U.S. 71 Highway on November 1, 2004.
Vallejo police said that Castaneda was shot multiple times in the parking lot of Sereno Village Apartments, becoming the second shooting victim found in the complex's parking lot this year.
In a separate shooting Eli Isaac Griffin, 29, was shot and killed and left in the same parking lot on January 3. In court Thursday, testimony revealed that a witness told police that murder suspect Mario Espinosa Matthews, a 21-year-old rapper, allegedly wore a Mac Dre mask while dancing around with a gun shortly before Griffin's shooting. Police stressed that the two cases are not linked.
According to residents, Castaneda lived in the complex with his wife. Vallejo police confirmed that the rapper lived in Richmond but had been staying in Vallejo recently. Police refused to disclose further details of Thursday's shooting, as their investigation is still continuing.
Since the rapper's death, fans have been showing an overwhelming amount of support on Cash's myspace page. Several fans have left messages that include "T.I.P", meaning "Thizz In Peace," an adaptation of the word thizz, a term that most credit Mac Dre with popularizing.
