A Spike Lee movie named Chi-raq would eventually follow, gathering the ancient Greek plotline that featured women holding out on sex with their mates until the violence ended.
As reported by Fox 32 Chicago, Johnson Jr — or King L or King Louie — had a bullet graze his head around 3:30 p.m. local Chicago time. That “grazing” likely helped save Louie’s life after he was shot in the Ashburn area, located at 83rd and Pulaski.
“Who’s working at Christ hospital tonight? Feel free to grab me a King Louie autograph.”
On Facebook, some are blaming the whole “violence begets violence” theory for the shooting.
“I don’t wish anyone harm… But in my Malcolm X voice…. The chickens came home to roost. You can’t spit the violent lyrics, boast pistol play, have a dgaf [don’t give a f***] attitude, drive around in a Bentley, and not become a target in Chicago. I hate to say it but this was inevitable. The only way to avoid it was to leave… Which he didn’t. Sad because although I think his lyrics are reckless and you will never heard me play his music… He is talented.”
