L’A Capone was born Leonard Anderson on September 18, 1996 in the South Side of Chicago, Illinois. He was an up and coming rapper closely associated with Lil Durk whom has appeared in some of his videos. Just like Chief Keef and Lil Durk, he was a member of the Black Disciples gang, and was often seen in videos with fellow rapper “RondoNumbaNine” and his step brother "Qwap" shouting out “GDK” which is slang for “Gangster Disciples Killer”; Gangster Disciples are rivals of the Black Disciples. On September 26, 2013, while leaving the recording studio around 6:00 PM, LA Capone went to look for his ride down the street, as he was walking down an alley near 70th Street and Stony Island Avenue, he was approached by an assailant later identified as Lil Mick an 051 young money rival member on foot, and four shots were soon fired, hitting him in his thigh and lower back. Upon hearing of the shooting, Lil Durk, who has been friends with him for more than five years, tweeted his wishes for him to get better, but he would later tweet “RIP Lil Bro” in Capone’s twitter around 8:00PM. There were many speculations on who killed L'A Capone before his killers were charged, L'A Capone's gang (600) was at war with numerous rival gangs such as the Gangster Disciples, L'A even dissed one of their dead members in his song "Play For Keeps" in which he said “Shondale how the hot sh*t feel." But the gang whom most people believed was behind the murder was 051 Young Money, a Mickey Cobra set.

In August 2014, the news came out that 3 individuals were charged with L'A Capone's murder. Sakhee Hardy-Johnson and Michael Mays, both members of 051 Young Money, were charged with first degree murder, a third individual, Meiko Buchanan whom authorities claim was the driver of a tail car was also charged in connection with L'A Capone's murder. Authorities claim that all three confessed to the crime after being booked.
