Walker was shot twice in the back by three men who pulled up alongside his green minivan at 112th Ave. and 209th St. in Queens Village while he was driving. His minivan smashed into a tree and hit a parked car before flipping over.
At the time of his death, Walker was a member of the rap group Live Squad, which had peaked with a hit single, "Heartless/Murderahh." He also worked with Shakur, helping him produce two gold records. Shakur was fatally shot in Las Vegas in 1996.
Walker's mother, Lucilda, lambasted the rap industry yesterday for promoting the violence that left her son dead, and her granddaughter, Moneysha, without a father.
November 30, 1995: Exactly on year after Tupac's shooting, Randy "Stretch" Walker is murdered execution-style in Queens.
What do you know about Tupac's former friend Randy "stretch" Walker who was murdered in 1995? I haven''t seen much information on that.
Stretch Walker was murdered exactly a year to the day after Tupac was shot the first time. in Manhattan at Quad Studios. Walker was a witness in that case and was with Tupac when it happened. Walker's murder was treated just like any other case; low key and not high profile. At the time of that murder, the studio shooting had already been closed; I spoke with police in New York when I was there. They did not look into Walker's murder as having anything to do with the Manhattan shooting.
Hope this answers your question.
