MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- He was a Milwaukee husband, father, entrepreneur and a rapper -- but last year, he was killed. 

His body was found in his own burning car. Now, his family is pleading that the community come forward with information.

He was known in the rap community as Fatboi Gwalla Gwalla, but his name is Lamonn Young. 

The 42-year-old was found dead in his own vehicle on May 18, 2021 near a water tower off of Hawley Road and Martin Drive. 

The GNC Yukon was on fire, but Milwaukee police say that fire was not the cause of his death.

Young owned a barber shop on 79th and Appleton called 4th Coast. 

His wife of 26 years and four children are hoping someone who knows something will come forward.

"I feel like there probably are people that knew what Mr. Young was going to be doing that day, where he was going. This happened in the early morning hours," said MPD Detective RoseMarie Galindo.

Detectives have no leads, no witnesses and no reason as to why someone would kill him.

If you know anything about this case, call Milwaukee Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS.

If your tip leads to an arrest, you get a $1,000 cash reward.
