Award-win­ning Swedish rap­per C.Gambino, real name Karar Ramadan, was trag­i­cal­ly shot dead in a Gothen­burg car park on Tues­day night. The 26-year-old ris­ing star, a recent Gram­my award win­ner, was one of Swe­den’s biggest hip hop acts.

Police believe the attack was gang-relat­ed and are inves­ti­gat­ing. C.Gambino was known to them, and the killing is sus­pect­ed to be linked to gang con­flict. Graph­ic evi­dence from the scene shows the sever­i­ty of the attack. Despite med­ical atten­tion, C.Gambino suc­cumbed to his injuries.

A chart-top­ping artist with mil­lions of month­ly Spo­ti­fy lis­ten­ers, C.Gambino’s lat­est track, “Sista Gang,” was released just days before his death. The Swedish hip hop com­mu­ni­ty is dev­as­tat­ed by the loss. Renowned rap expert Pet­ter Hallen called C.Gambino “one of Swe­den’s great­est” and said his death is a major blow to the scene.

This fol­lows the 2021 mur­der of anoth­er promi­nent Swedish rap­per, EinĂĄr, who was just 19 when he was shot in an exe­cu­tion-style attack. 

Swe­den has seen a surge in gang vio­lence in recent years, with shoot­ings and bomb­ings becom­ing increas­ing­ly com­mon. The vio­lence is believed to be root­ed in the drug trade but has grown to encom­pass oth­er conflicts.

The inves­ti­ga­tion into C.Gambino’s mur­der is ongo­ing. Police urge any­one with infor­ma­tion to come for­ward to help bring the per­pe­tra­tors to justice.
