“Grammy Nominated Writer (New Slaves) feat on ‘Send It Up’ (Yeezus)”
The same Instagram account proclaims the accolades of King Louie, and the work he has done that has brought him to prominence in the world of hip-hop, along with other famous Chicagoans like Chief Keef. The shooting of King L is being compared to the video that hit the net earlier this year titled “Footage of Chief Keef’s GBE GLOGANG Member ‘Capo’ Shot Dead! Video Of His Last Moments…” on YouTube. As reported by the Inquisitr, the disturbing footage showed Capo lying in his own blood. Reports of rappers blowing up and gaining jealous attention from others as the cause of them becoming shooting targets are being bandied about online by fans.
Prayers and a myriad of reactions from King Louie fans are being expressed on social media. On Facebook, reactions to King Louie’s shooting have some wondering why Johnson never moved away from Chicago. Others are offering sympathy and sadness for another tragic shooting in Chicago — which has the city earning its “Chiraq” reputation. Ironically, Louie is the selfsame rapper who coined the term Chiraq in the first place.
