Doughboy Roc of Doughboyz Cashout Dead at 29

Doughboy Roc, born Rodney Yeargin, was shot and killed in his hometown Detriot on Monday, according to Local 4 News.

Authorities said that around 3:30 p.m. Yeargin was found shot to death inside his car on the city’s west side. Police are still searching for the shooter.

Roc, 29, rose to prominence as a member of Doughboyz Cashout. The group was formed in 2006 when its members were high school students, with many, including Roc, attending Southfield High School. In 2013, the group signed to Jeezy’s CTE World label – although they are no longer a part of the label.

In 2012 the group released “Free Roc” following the rapper’s incarceration. In 2013 he released Ghetto Testimony, in 2014 there was Beastmode, 2016 there was Loyalty is Everything, and in September, Roc released a solo album entitled Roc Vs Balboa.

On Tuesday HBK Kid, a member of the group, posted on Twitter a tribute to his friend and collaborator.

Detroit rapper Big Sean also tweeted his condolences.
