THE moment an up-and-coming New Jersey rapper was gunned down by two masked gunmen in broad daylight has been captured on video.
Musician Tripple Beanz, 29, was shot and killed on Avon Avenue, Newark, shortly before 1pm on Friday, according to authorities.
In shocking surveillance footage obtained by the NY Post, Beanz - real name Corey Thompson - is seen approaching his parked car.
But two masked men jump out of an SUV , before walking up to the rapper and opening fire.
The gunmen fire at Thompson multiple times, before one fires a shot at the rapper's head at close range before fleeing the scene on foot.
Posting to Instagram, the DFG Recording Studio paid tribute to the rising musician.
It read: “Our hearts are hurting bad here at DFG Beanz man.
