Rapper King Louie, 28, whose real name is Louis Johnson, has been shot in the head in the Ashburn neighborhood of Chicago. His management is reporting that he was grazed and is awake and talking at this time. King Louie has been a staple in the Chicago drill scene with the likes of Chief Keef and Lil Durk. King Louie assisted fellow Chicagoan Kanye West on Kanye’s most recent project Yeezus, helping him pen the song “Send it Up.” He recently released a video named F Spike Lee in response to the movie Chi-Raq. Ironically, King Louie has been credited by many sources as being the one who coined the term “Chi-Raq.”
Details surrounding the shooting are still developing.
