(AllHipHop News) A local man has been charged with the murder of a well-known rapper in Chicago earlier this week.
Rapper dinnerwithjohn, aka John Walt, was stabbed to death on Wednesday (February 8th), after getting into an altercation with a man named Kevin Alexander.
Alexander, 23, is accused of stabbing dinnerwithjohn in his upper left torso, and killing him on the spot.
According to NBC Chicago 5, Alexander himself was being treated at the University of Illinois Hospital, where he was charged with one count of first-degree murder.
Chicago rapper Twista told the outlet that he was very familiar with dinnerwithjohn, who was a member of the Pivot Gang.
“He actually worked at my studio,” Twista told NBC5. “Hard for me to see young guys who worked with him go through this period.”
