Stack Bundles, an up-and-coming New York rapper, was shot to death outside his home in a possible robbery, police said.

Bundles was shot in the head and neck at about 5 a.m. yesterday (June 11) on a Queens street after a night out with friends. Authorities were investigating whether the unidentified shooter stole a chain from the 24-year-old rapper.

Bundles, whose real name was Rayquon Elliot, had worked with artists including Fabolous and DJ Clue. He was affiliated with Byrd Gang Records.

The label "is deeply saddened by our loss," manager Yancy Smith said in a statement. "A young star's light was put out before he had a chance to shine in front of the world."
