The gunman who killed seven people in a shooting at a fourth of July celebration in Highland Park, Illinois, posted videos online of him building his own home and painting a soldier on the wall of his parents' backyard. 

Robert 'Bobby' Crimo III, 21, is facing seven counts of first degree murder in Lake County, Illinois, for his alleged role in the shooting. Authorities say that Crimo fired on a crowd enjoying an Independence Day parade in the town. 

Crimo also went by the moniker Awake the Rapper. 

In a blog archive obtained by DailyMail.com, many of Crimo's bizarre videos have come to light. 

The suspect archived a livestream of him building the small shed where he lived at the time of the shooting. The shed is located beside his parents home along Pleasant Avenue in Highwood, Illinois, just north of where the shooting took place.

Crimo begins the video by asking his followers: 'What's up communists?' He tells viewers that he is building a 'cabin in the city,' a reference to the shed. 

From there, Crimo takes the camera to show off his car that he refers to as the 'P***y Magnet.' The car, which has the number 47 emblazoned on the side, also has a sticker across the rear window reading: 'P***y Magnet.'

It is unclear if that 47 is a reference to the date of the massacre - with Crimo also recently posting a stream of 47s on a now-deactivated Twitter account. 

Despite being a rapper, Crimo is shown listening to classic rock throughout the video as AC/DC, Blue Oyster Cult and Creedence Clearwater Revival's anti war anthem 'Fortunate Son' can be heard. 

During an interaction with live commenters, Crimo says: 'Death to America.' After describing to the viewers what his home might eventually look like, saying that it will include a window and a bench, Crimo concludes his video by saying: 'Goodbye Mr. FBI agent.'

In a separate video that Crimo titled 'Smiley Face Soldier (Speed Painting),' the suspect paints an image of a man in green and black with a smiley face emoji over his face on the wall of his parent's house. This is all done with the Darth Vader's theme music from 'Star Wars' playing over it. 

Above the image of the soldier is the words that Crimo earlier painted on the wall: 'God's Not Dead.' In that video, Crimo painted the words with the main theme from 'Star Wars' playing as the soundtrack. 

'God's Not Dead' is the title of a series of high commercially successful evangelical Christian movies.
