Chicago, IL — Qaw’mane Wilson, a rapper from Chicago known as Young QC, who reportedly hired his friends to kill his own mother has been sentenced to 99 years in prison. He thought that by having his mother killed, he could get her life insurance money and savings to spend on his luxurious lifestyle.
Wilson, the only child of his mother Yolanda Holmes, was apparently used to getting everything he wanted. His mother would spoil him with clothes, jewelry, car, and even helped him get a steady job.
However, Wilson wasn’t content. He wanted to flaunt more money in hopes to get more fans as a budding rapper. To achieve that, he decided to kill his mother.
In 2012, Wilson, who was then 23-years old, hired Eugene Spencer to kill his mother. Spencer rode with Wilson’s girlfriend when he went to Holmes’ apartment to carry out the crime.
According to police reports, Spencer shot Holmes as she slept in her bed. Holmes’s boyfriend tried to stop Spencer but fell unconscious after a physical struggle. Spencer then stabbed Holmes after calling Wilson who told him, “make sure the b — - is dead.”
Wilson eventually withdrew money from his mother’s bank account. He used the cash to customize his Mustang car. At one point, he went to a local nightclub and threw money in the air for his fans to collect, as seen on a YouTube video posted on his account in May 2013.
Wilson, who is now 30-years old, recently received a 99-year sentence. Before the ruling was made, he told the judge, “I just want to say, nobody loved my mother more than me. She was all I had. That’s it.”
The gunman, Spencer, was sentenced to 100 years.
