UPDATE: Louis Farrakhan visited Louie in the hospital early today. Louie posted a picture on Instagram of them together:
Word has gotten out that Chicago rapper King Louie was shot in the head in his own city today. Those reports have apparently been confirmed by Sam Charles of the Chicago Sun-Times via Louie’s manager:
In an article, Charles writes that Louie was shot today at around 3:30 PM while sitting in a vehicle on the 3900 block of West 83rd in the Ashburn neighborhood of the South Side of Chicago. He was rushed to a hospital and his condition has apparently “stabilized.”
Thankfully he seems to be conscious and talking, but this is terrible news either way. We’re praying for his speedy recovery.
