Chicago’s rising rapper sentenced to 99 years in prison ..


A Chicago based upcoming rapper Qaw’mane Wilson also known as “Young QC” has been sentenced to 99 years in prison after he hired a hit man to murder his own mother so that he can have access to her bank accounts and life insurance.


According to Chicago Times, the rising rapper was on Friday found guilty of the murder-for-hire last year, and sentenced to spend the rest of his life behind bars. The gunman, Eugene Spencer, was sentenced to 100 years.

“The word is ‘matricide,’ meaning murder of one’s own mother, is a big offense,” Cook County Judge Stanley Sacks who jailed the men said.


In 2012, Wilson, who was the only child of her mother hired a hitman Eugene Spencer to kill her so he could have access to her accounts. Yolanda Holmes was shot and stabbed to death by the hitman after he was ordered by Wilson to “make sure the b*tch is dead.”

It was also revealed that Spencer drove with Wilson’s girlfriend to the rapper’s mum’s home to kill her.


He reportledly shot Ms.Holmes as she slept in her bed, then struggled with her boyfriend, knocking him unconscious, before returning to stab Holmes after a phone conversation with Wilson, who ordered him to “make sure the bitch is dead.”

Months after his mother’s death, Wilson collected the money in his mother’s bank accounts amd used it to fund his extravagant lifestyle.


In a YouTube video that was played for the jury, Wilson withdrew thousands of dollars from a bank and tossed wads of cash to a crowd of people he said were his fans and wrote, “I am Nicki and I give back to my fans and my supporters its only right.”

Cook County Judge Stanley Sacks said during the sentencing that Holmes was a devoted mother who gave her son anything he wanted.

“Whatever he wanted, his mother gave to him. A car. A job. One could say he was spoiled.“She gave Qaw’mane life, and it was his choice to take it way from her,” Judge Sacks told the court yesterday.

When asked if he had anything to say before Sacks made his ruling, He said” “I just want to say, nobody loved my mother more than me,” he said. “She was all I had. That’s it.”
