Former Chopper City Boys group member Rapper VL Mike was shot to death earlier today (April 20) in New Orleans, AllHipHop.com has learned.
VL Mike, born Michael Allen, 32, was murdered when a man shot him to death, as he exited his vehicle between Paris Avenue and Overton Drive.
The rapper was taken to University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
