17-year-old rapper accidentally shoots himself fatally while filming TikTok video

Video shows the teen displaying his handgun to the camera before pointing it at his head and pulling the trigger.


On Thursday, 17-year-old Virginia-based rapper Rylo Huncho fatally shot himself while filming a TitTok video. 

In the video posted to his Instagram stories, Huncho was seen flipping the barrel of a handgun and holding it by the grip to show off the flashlight with a built-in laser sight. He then grabbed the grip, turned the gun towards his head, and said, "F**k Y'all N*****s" while pulling the trigger. 

In a GoFundMe set up by Hucho's cousin, she explained that "Suicide/accidental was the cause of his death," but they were "still trying to figure out why." 

"My aunt recently lost her 17 year old son from a self inflicted gun wound to the head," the post read. "He was her only son ! She was a single parent but took care of her son the best she could."

"Please keep my family in your prayers," she concluded. 

According to Times Now, Huncho's friend, Twin Porter, broke the news to fans on his Facebook account. In a post he said, "to get a text saying he passed away is heartbreaking and to hear the mean things y’all are saying about Railey is so wrong on every level please god give his mother the strength to deal with the devastating pain she’s in." 

In response to the video on X, many pointed out the need for training on the safe handling of firearms. Youtuber Amiri King said, "This is why I don’t advocate for cornballing out with firearms to look hard." 

"I wish they force taught gun safety/firearm curriculum in ‘the hood’ and/or high crime areas," he added. "I think teaching 2A and weapon respect would put a dent in dumb s**t like this."

First, what is a 17 year old doing with a pistol? Next, how was the pistol aquired? Lastly, it was not an 'accidental discharge'. It was a negligent discharge. He took several steps to kill himself. He aquired the weapon, loaded the weapon, put a round in the chamber, put his finger on the trigger and then fired. But, there is good news. Another piece of trash took himself out of the gene pool. Darwin loves an easy win.


Just trying to read what BLACKS post is painful. Hard to believe they learned the same English as I did. Then BLACKS blame it on education. Kind of ironic.


This guy should be praised for getting rid of the problem himself.
