City police are investigating after they said a local rapper was killed in a drive-by shooting outside a lounge in Queens on Sunday morning.
"I just see chairs all over the floor and then I just see him on the floor, and then I didn't see anything until he starting gasping and blood just was going everywhere," said bartender Tieshajah Reynolds, who witnessed the shooting.
Police said 35-year-old Frank Snyder, who goes by the stage name Hollywood Play, was shot in the neck and leg around 3:15 a.m. in front of the Tavern Bar and Lounge on Jamaica Avenue in Woodhaven. He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Sources told NY1 that the Brooklyn resident exited the lounge, where he was hosting a party, when a dark-colored sedan rolled up and someone inside shot in his direction several times, striking him.
The city police department did not confirm if Hollywood Play was the intended target, but Reynolds said she thought the car must have been waiting for the rapper.
"I guess, like, once he went inside, shots went off and they targeted him for some reason, because there were a couple other people outside," she said. "I feel like they had to wait until the right moment to get him."
There are no arrests at this time.
Neighbors said the area is safe but the bar often makes them uneasy. "This bar is not safe at nighttime," one woman said. "Even in the daytime, crossing it, it's kind of scary. At nighttime, when I used to come home at 3 a.m., it was scary and I wasn't sure if I should go this way."
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com

Like a self-cleaning oven.

He was just starting to turn his life around.
What could go wrong?
his career just got a boost
Rappers keeping it real. The drive by is pretty cowardly though. Bring back dueling. Rappers are all about disrespect and taking offense. Dueling would be a great way for them to settle their disputes. Might make for good tv.

If country music singers went back to packing guns, they might be able to thin the herd of those pretender wannabe country acts...
Maybe rapping isn’t the best career choice nowadays. Being shot and killed seems to be a requirement of the job.
Another musical lamp extinguished ... and the world mourns not.

Don’t forget Billy Joe Shaver.
Well, when you bait people with your lyrics, bad things will happen.
This article must be fake news.
Guns are practically banned in NYC. Not a republican in sight. Assailant wasn’t Kavanaugh.
It just doesn’t add up.
