Tdott Woo, born Tahjay Dobson, was fatally shot outside his home in Canarsie hours after signing with Million Dollar Records
The rapper sustained a gunshot wound to the head and was transported to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.
“He was a good, good kid,” Dobson’s grandmother told the New York Daily News. “He loved singing and dancing and all that. He had a passion for music.”
The relative, who declined to be identified by name, also told the outlet she heard four “very quick rapid shots” around the time Dobson was allegedly gunned down, adding that the shooting occurred right outside their home.
“They signed him to a record label,” the grandmother also said. “He posted it yesterday on Instagram.”
Earlier Tuesday, Million Dollar Music announced it had signed Tdott Woo to a contract via an Instagram Stories update, billing him as an “official artist,” Complex reported.
His grandmother added to the Daily News that Tdott had just returned from Los Angeles on Monday evening, where he had been recording a music video with friends.
The rapper was a friend and associate of rappers Pop Smoke — who was shot and killed in February 2020 in L.A. — and Fivio Foreign, having appeared in music videos for both of those artists, Complex added.
Authorities told the Daily News that the suspect fled the scene of the shooting in a dark SUV. No arrests have been made in connection with the incident, and police are still investigating a motive.
