Sitting in a car with two unidentified men near NW 152nd Street and Sixth Avenue in the parking lot of an apartment complex, Kenneth "Nu Money" Casilla was murdered.

According to Miami-Dade Police Department (via NY1), the Brooklyn-bred, Miami-based rapper and Rich Mafia crew member was shot and killed at approximately 9:30 p.m. last Saturday night. No one else in the vehicle was injured.

"They took my son. Why?" Casillas' mother, Yvette, told NY1 on the night of her son's murder. "What did my son do to them to kill him like that? He was 20 years old."

After dabbling in rap and independently releasing tracks like "Oww Oww" while still living in Brooklyn, Casilla moved to Miami, his mom says, to get serious about his hip-hop career.

"From little, he was talented," she told NY1. "He would dance, rap, play ball."

Eventually, Nu Money hooked up with Rich Mafia's JayRich and Big Bz in the MIA. He dropped collabo cuts like "Ballin." He freestyled on "Soft" and "OJ." He smoked up for the camera. He made it rain at the strip club. And he starred in YouTube vids like "Rich Mafia TV Episode 2" rolling fatties and getting pulled over by the cops.



But while Casilla rhymed about being "strapped up like Rambo" and "bad bitch[es] ... [who] swallow everything," he was also a loving son. And he was engaged to girlfriend, Ashana Cummings.

"I never would have ever expected him to be killed," Cummings said, adding, "I wish he would have learned how to trust less and stop befriending everybody, because that's what put him in the situation he's in now."



Meanwhile, the 20-year-old victim's mother remains suspicious of those unnamed and uninjured associates in that vehicle with her son at the time of his death.

"He was in a car with somebody he knows and another guy in the back," she pointed out, "and my son gets shot and nobody else gets shot."

"He wasn't involved in anything," Yvette Casilla said. "But jealousy, yeah."

Sadly I believe he was sacrificed by his crew because they knew he'd get the most coverage from this murder. It would then promote the crew... niggas that were barely working as hard. I'm disgusted if this is the truth. It doesn't make sense that he was the ONLY ONE SHOT in the car! They were prepared; they knew they weren't the target. I wish the police cared more to find his killer and the individuals who deserve to serve time for being involved. All of them look like suspects to me. I just pray for his family and that justice is served. I don't know the young man but it's also a lesson for other young rappers. When you rap badly about the cops who may solve your case someday they'll lose passion. They are on your side more then the backstabbing greedy HUNGRY dudes that are mistakenly called friends. GOD PLEASE bring his family justice! People, my black people, please learn from this one. PLEASE LEARN. I love y'all and I don't know you but love your brothers and sisters and be careful. This world is corrupt! Hearts are cold out here. People misled. No one deserves this. RIP NUNU and I know nothing can change the brokenness his fiance feels. I've been there after losing a loved one. Blessings to you, no one will understand like God. You will never forget but somehow you'll find peace. You will laugh again [someday] but you'll cry too! Hold onto memories, write about the most precious ones to NEVER FORGET the next love you may find in your lifetime will have a hard time keeping up but I pray for you... it takes a while but you'll laugh smile and live again. I pray that you and his family have a healthy healing process. GOD BLESS!

Good riddance.... Seriously, after watching the "music" video it was pathetic and lack any and all talent. This young man and what he promoted in his music glorified all that is wrong with Miami and this country. Just another pathetic pretending loser. Sad he was murdered, but based on his video priorities it comes as no surprise. Reminds me of another pretending loser, Ammar Harris, the dumbarse Las Vegas murderer.

@GoldenGirl  Too strange indeed and you very well could be right. Also he seemed to have had the most skills out of the bunch.

@GetReal You're a jerk. He was 20 years old! So you don't like rap. What kind of music a person likes is a matter of taste. This boy certainly didn't deserve to be killed because YOU don't care for the kind of music he made! GET A GRIP!

@GetReal How dare you say something like this. Whats your talent? What do you do? Besides dick ride & hide behind a social network. This young man lost his life & was well loved. Its not his fault that he had hating ass niggas like yourself to hide behind a gun and take his life away. Who ever did it is nothing but a coward. And God dont like ugly and the same kind of pain his loved ones had to go thru,Will one day be put upon you. Lets see how funny you'll find it then.
