50 Cent Affiliate Mazaradi Fox Shot Dead In Queens, NY
Rapper Mazaradi Fox, a 50 Cent and G-Unit affiliate, was shot and killed in the St. Albans section of Queens, N.Y. on Friday afternoon when a ski mask-clad shooter opened fire on an SUV he was sitting in according to the NY Daily News.
The 42-year-old Fox aka Jamal Green had been signed to 50 Cent’s G-Unit Records in 2007 but never released an official project on the label. He did, however, release a number of low budget straight-to-YouTube and WorldStar videos and made several mixtape appearances guesting on songs with French Montana and Mobb Deep’s Prodigy. Mazaradi Fox eventually parted ways with G-Unit amicably and maintained a relationship with 50 Cent who tweeted his condolences after learning of the killing:
Saddened by the news of Mazaradi's tragic passing my thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends #smsaudio

Fox was with three other victims who were in the white SUV with him when the shots rang out. One of the vehicle’s passengers, a 22-year-old man, was hit in the neck and shoulder and is in critical condition.
The remaining passengers — another 22-year-old man and a woman in her 20s believed to be Fox’s daughter — suffered a gunshot in the arm and a graze wound to the neck respectively.
According to the NY Daily News”
“It was unclear how many shots were fired before the gunman, described only as a black man dressed all in black, fled in a dark-colored Hyundai sedan, according to sources. A fuller description of the suspect was not available.”
Police are searching for the sedan — and a possible fifth victim — at local hospitals.
