    Cummings, pictured here in a rap video as R.E. Clipz, was arrested in San Diego on Nov. 20.

    An aspiring rapper wanted for questioning in a gruesome Massachusetts murder case will soon be transferred from California where he is currently in custody, officials said.

    Reginald Cummings, also known as R.E. Clipz, waived his right to an extradition hearing when he appeared in front of a San Diego judge Monday.

    Investigators looking into the murder of Dennis Jackson want to talk with Cummings, according to New England Cable News.

    NECN reports that Jackson’s burned remains were found in a barrel near the Bridgewater State Correctional Facility.

    Cummings has not been charged with a crime.

    The aspiring rapper was in San Diego last week when he was arrested on an outstanding Massachusetts warrant, NECN reports.

    His next court date should be within 20 days according to San Diego County prosecutors. No specific date for his extradition has been set.
