After a lengthy trial and conviction for a murder he committed in 2014 with fellow Chicago rapper Cdai, RondoNumbaNine has been sentenced to 39 years in prison the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
On February 22, 2014, Rondo and Cdai drove to an apartment complex on the south side of the city to retaliate for an earlier shooting. They saw 29-year-old cab driver Javan Boyd parked in his car waiting to pick up a customer and approached him on foot. They shot Boyd seven times before returning to their own vehicle and driving away. Rondo’s fingerprints were found on Boyd’s taxi, and a surveillance camera captured footage of the incident.
Cdai received a similar sentence of 38 years just a few weeks ago. RondoNumbaNine was only 17-years-old at the time of the shooting.
