According to police, Acevedo was driving a BMW that hit and killed Nachman and pregnant Raizy Glover, who were in a nearby NYC taxi. Their infant child was delivered, but died prematurely the next day. 

In 1987, Acevedo, going by the name of “Wemo,” was convicted for the fatal shooting of Kelvin “50 Cent” Martin. Martin inspired the name of current rapper “50 Cent.”

Some say that the original 50 Cent gained his name from his willingness to rob any and everyone no matter how much money they might have had on them. Others attribute his name to his small 5 foot 2 stature. 

Well known rapper Curtis Jackson, aka 50 Cent, explains why he took on the name.

“I’m the same kind of person 50 cent was. I provide for myself by any means.”

Julio Acevedo clearly has a dangerous record.
