Randy Walker (April 8, 1968 - November 30, 1995), better known by his stage name Stretch, was an American rapper and producer.
Life and career:
Stretch was a rapper and hip hop producer from Springfield Gardens, Queens, New York who founded the hip hop group Live Squad with his brother Majesty in the late 1980s. He made brief cameo appearances in several films, such as Juice, Who's the Man? and Bullet, and contributed to the soundtrack Above the Rim. He is perhaps most famous for his work and close affiliation with Tupac Shakur during the early 1990s.
On the evening of November 30, 1995, Stretch was killed after being shot four times in the back by three men who pulled up alongside his green minivan at 112th Avenue and 209th Street in Queens Village, while he was driving. His minivan smashed into a tree and hit a parked car before flipping over. Stretch was killed exactly one year after Tupac's 1994 Quad Studio shooting, and many people believe that Stretch was killed as a form of retaliation.
