Chicago prosecutors accuse gang members of rapper FBG Duck’s murder


Five alleged Chicago gang members have been charged with allegedly beating rapper FBG Duck in the north of the city last summer.

The O-Black gang fired a 26-year-old FBG duck — whose real name was Carlton Weekly — in the fashionable Gold Coast neighborhood in August 2020, and “took responsibility for violence in Chicago and used it to enhance social media and music.” Press release.

Charles Liggins, 30, Kenneth Roberson, 28, Tacarlos Offred, 30, Christopher Thomas, 22, and Marcus Smart, 22, all of Chicago, were charged with attempted murder, aiding and abetting a variety of weapon charges.

At an afternoon court hearing, Liggins, Offred, Thomas and Smart pleaded not guilty, and the judge ordered the arrest pending trial. Roberson was not in court and his initial hearing was not scheduled, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Two men boarded, opened fire, and then boarded the vehicle again, leaving the Oak Street store in broad daylight. The man was killed weekly and a woman and another man were injured. Police said it appears to be a “targeted” attack on another person weekly or nearby.

FBG Duck is best known for its 2018 hit song “Slide,” which currently has 65 million views on YouTube.

Police may have targeted the defendants because they videotaped the death of a rival gang member who died a few days ago, the Chicago Tribune reported

Liggins, Offred, Thomas and Smart were arrested Wednesday morning. According to the release, Roberson is already in custody at the Cook County Jail.

The federal murder count imposes mandatory minimum prison sentences and maximum death sentences.

Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said the new indictment gives a message that “we are going behind gangs in this city.”
