Yesterday I had  the chance to interview rapper C-Loc during the afternoon jumpoff. One of the guys who is instrumental in the careers of Max Manelli, Boosie and Racked Up Ready A.K.A Young Ready. Later in the evening when I was scrolling down the timeline on Instagram, I came across some R.I.P messages and had to do a double take.

 

I reached out to a few of my peers in Baton Rouge and the news was confirmed. I am still at disbelief as this was a young man who was on his way to stardom. He had the music that the clubs loved and would occasionally reach out to me and get my opinion on some of his music. According to WAFB he was killed along with another man in the Bogalousa area around 3 pm. This is sad news as he was just on instagram as recently as yesterday morning and also shared plenty of pictures with his kids who he loved dearly.

 

The details are very sketchy at the moment, but the hip hop community will miss him and can rejoice in the fact that he still has plenty of music for his fans to enjoy. I would like to send out my condolences to his family and all of his fans for the senseless loss can only hope that justice will be served.

Check out some of his videos that he had recently released and keep it locked for more details on upcoming music and the status on the case.
