Rodney King Dead At 47

(AllHipHop News) Los Angeles legend Rodney King is dead at the age of 47.

According to reports, King’s fiancée found him dead at the bottom of a pool this morning.

Rodney King’s beating, which was caught on videotape in 1991, sparked the Los Angeles riots a year later, when the four officers involved in his beating, were acquitted.

Authorities are still trying to determine the exact cause of death, and how King ended up at the bottom of the pool.

Editor’s Note: AllHipHop.com interviewed Rodney King less than two months ago about his new book and the impact of his historic police beating. – Read the interview here.
