Sheriff Chad Chronister called the incident a “violent execution” and said the shooting is believed to be a gang-related feud.
“This was a violent execution this suspect performed, and although the attack was clearly targeted, we will not allow gang-related disputes to disrupt the comfort and safety of innocent residents in any of our communities,” he said.
Adams, a well-known local rapper, allegedly arrived at the studio earlier in the evening on Thursday with his two victims.
But the 23-year-old rapper shot the two men to death after he finished recording his music then fled the scene in his car, cops said.
Deputies received a call about a reported shooting and arrived the home in Lutz, where they found the two men dead inside of the shed being used as a “makeshift” studio in the backyard.
Cops found and arrested Adams on Saturday, and he is being held in the Orient Road Jail.
The rapper and one of the victims both self-identify as being part of the “Crips” gang.
“It is clear that this suspect had no regard for human life, and now he will face the consequences for his actions,” Chronister said.
Adams has also been charged with one count of armed burglary of a structure.
The rapper has 71 monthly listeners on Spotify and none of his songs have received more than 1,000 streams on the platform.
Adams works as a salesman at the Finish Line store in The Shops at Wiregrass, according to an arrest report obtained by the Tampa Bay Times.
