Yase’s remains were discovered in the East Bay, kilometres away from where he was last seen at a recording studio in San Francisco, reportedTMZ.
The California rapper reportedly left the Marin County building at around midnight and said he would be right back.
About an hour and a half later, it emerged that he’d been shot dead somewhere in the East Bay.
TMZ cited sources who were left baffled by his killing because Yase had no known enemies in the area.
Insiders said he was purely focused on rapping, promoting his label Highway 420 Productions, and gaming.
