Mississippi Rapper Lil Lonnie Fatally Shot [Condolences]
Very sad news. Mississippi rapper Lil Lonnie (real named Lonnie Taylor) was murdered in Jackson, Mississippi. According to reports, the 22-year-old was one of two people killed.
Hours after posting a picture of himself on Instagram and Snapchat, he died after being shot multiple times as he drove his SUV. His car stopped when it crashed into a home. The female passenger in his car was not injured.
The Jackson Police Department said no suspects had been identified. There was no known motive either.
Taylor had big plans for the money he planned to make as an up-and-coming artist. He stated during an interview last year,
I want to be the next icon people look up to. I want to motivate others around from where I’m from because not too many get the recognition I do, and I just want to bring that impact to where I’m from and help people out.
Please keep Lil Lonnie’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
