Some sad news to report from over the weekend. West Coast and very popular L.A. artist Drakeo the Ruler was stabbed multiple times at a concert he was performing at and died from his injuries. Drake, who has done a song with Drakeo, was one of the first people to react to the sad news, posting a RIP story on his Instagram and many more artists paid their respects as well. R.I.P. to a very talented young man and we send our thoughts to his family, friends and fans.
RIP Drakeo, the greatest West Coast artist of a generation, a legend who invented a new rap language of slippery cadences, nervous rhythms, and psychedelic slang, who beat life twice only to suffer the most tragic fate conceivable. The Ruler, once, always, and forever. 💔 pic.twitter.com/WKKjMV9PML
