The rapper was best known for his association with hip-hop icons like 2Pac and Ice Cube.

The beef was reportedly resolved during their boxing match, and the duo even started working on a business project before Gonzoe’s passing.
Gonzoe will be remembered for the mid-90s Los Angeles rap industry where he rose to fame with the trio rap group, Kausion, and gained prominence with their debut 1995 album, “South Central Los Skanless.” The group later signed to Ice Cube’s Lench Mob Records.
