Rapper Escapes Kansas City Shooting

(AllHipHop News) A meal might have saved a rapper from death.  An unnamed rap artist narrowly escaped a shooting at a Kansas City recording studio on the 8100 block of Hickman Mills Drive which took the life of two individuals around noon of January 30th.

After being dropped off at the studio by a friend around noon, the unharmed rapper heard gunfire as he was eating lunch and quickly darted out the back to a local tire shop where he was “visibly upset and shaking” according to employees at the tire shop. Police have not released the names of the slain victims of this attack; however have identified one as an owner of the recording studio while the unnamed MC claims the other was his friend.

The rapper was not able to recognize the shooter and after hours of investigation, the police deduced that the killing did not appear to be premeditated.  A friend of the owner claimed the front door of the studio had been unlocked during recent visits even though he claimeed the owner was adamant about the front door being locked.

Not every rapper has had the luck of being able to leave a Kansas City shooting with their life. Back in 2004, Mac Dre was murdered on a Kansas City freeway over what is reported as a financial dispute.  Born Andre Hicks, the Vallejo rapper was gunned down in his car by still unknown culprits in a stolen black Infiniti G36. Following the murder, rumors about Kansas City rapper Fat Tone being behind the murder intensified and eventually led to the rapper’s 2005 murder by San Francisco rap promoter Andre “Mac Minister” Dow.

In 2011, an unnamed male informant informed a Kansas City writer that he would reveal the identity of Mac Dre’s killers. As of yet, no information on the identity of the culprits in Mac Dre’s or the January 30th shooting have been ascertained.
