CHICAGO (WGN) -- An aspiring Chicago rapper who posted a video on YouTube of himself throwing thousands of dollars that he inherited from his mother to his “fans” has been sentenced to 99 years in prison for her 2012 murder-for-hire killing.

Thirty-year-old Qaw’mane "Young QC" Wilson was sentenced Friday by a Cook County judge who also sentenced the gunman, Eugene Spencer, to 100 years.

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that both men were convicted last March of first-degree murder, attempted murder and home invasion in the killing of Yolanda Holmes.

The Sun-Times reports Spencer went to Holmes’ apartment in 2012 and shot Holmes as she slept in her bed, then stabbed her after a phone conversation with Wilson, who told him to “make sure the bitch is dead.”
