Social media has been buzzing with circulating clips of a homegoing celebration for DMV rapper Goonew.

Details On Goonew’s Homegoing 

An alleged flyer described the event as: “Goonew ‘The Final Show.” Event organizers listed the event time between 4pm and 8pm local time. The flyer also says attendees “must have tickets,” but had the option of purchasing “tickets at the door.” A source who attended the event confirmed to The Shade Room that there was a $40 cover fee to enter the venue.

Hours after the celebration, folks flooded the social channels with commentary of Goonew’s presence at the homegoing. Event organizers seemingly propped up Goonew’s embalmed body on the club stage. The body wore designer clothing, including an Amiri sweatshirt. Goonew’s alleged corpse also wore jeans, sneakers and a crown on his head.

Public reaction to Goonew’s presence involved mixed reactions. Some folks condemned the celebration organizers and the venue, while others blasted critics and encouraged people to mind their business. (See some reactions below.)
