NY radio veteran Funk Flex and model Ari Fletcher are at a loss for words.
Chicago rapper King Von has passed away.
Two of the people injured by the gunfire were stable Friday morning, and one was taken to a hospital in critical condition. Music producer ChopsquadDJ confirmed the crushing news along with additional media outlets.
"My heart can't take this", Chopsquad captioned a photo of himself with Von. No bro. Why you. "I bust a U, pulled up to her spot, she live by the park / It's gettin' dark, my Glock on my lap, I'm just thinkin' smart". Why they had to take you.

Visibility was there but again, unfortunately, the incident happened and so we're hopeful that with the GBI's assistance we can get to the bottom of everything. RIP my Bestfriend. The only nigga to listen to me word for word from day 1. Few rappers are able to make songs that bring relatability to the stress, trauma and pain that comes with growing up in inner-city Chicago, a target of police and neighborhood rulers alike. Every bar had a meaning and every song was a part of our soul. He was initially listed as being in critical condition. "The officers did shoot but we want to ensure that we look at the evidence and be able to prove who did what, so that's why we're so dependent upon the GBI", according to Deputy Chief Timothy Peek.
Authorities are still trying to piece together how the rapper, born Dayvon Daquan Bennett, died, and whether the Atlanta Police Department was involved in his death, or that of two other men who were also fatally wounded. During the early Friday morning shooting, two off-duty cops who were working security are said to have tried to intervene, ultimately exchanging gunfire with as-yet-unidentified individuals.
