Breaking: Former Death Row Records Artist Shot Dead

(AllHipHop News) Various sources have informed AllHipHop.com that former Death Row Records artist, Kevin “Flipside” White (seen here with the late Tupac Shakur) of the Watts group O.F.T.B. died on Monday September 23 as a victim of gun violence.

Based out of the Nickerson Gardens Projects in Watts, the group O.F.T.B (Operation From The Bottom) signed to Death Row Records in the early 90’s and appeared on such compilations and soundtracks as Murder Was The Case, Above The Rim and Gridlock’d.

Although O.F.T.B. released their debut album Straight Up Watts on Big Beat Records in 1992 before signing with Suge Knight, they never released an album on Death Row Records until 2011 when the new owners of the Death Row catalogue, WideAwake, decided to release the group’s Damn Near Dead album.

Details about the shooting are still unknown at this time. AllHipHop.com would like to send our condolences to the family and friends of Kevin “Flipside” White.

    Damn…. This dude is a legend in Watts.
    OFTB is the most recognized rap duo/group out of the Gardens but it confirms the fact that gangbangin after 30 years old is straight dumb!
    It didn’t make any sense to make the “Hey Bounty Hunter” video when you are 40-something.

    Well Jay Rock from TDE is now the new official Watts-Up representer.
