Very sad news coming out of Mississippi….

22-year-old rapper Lonnie “Lil Lonnie” Taylor was killed on Sunday night in his hometown of Jackson, Mississippi.

Hours after he posted the photo above of himself sitting in his SUV, someone opened fire on the vehicle hitting him multiple times.

The female passenger in the car was not injured.

At this time, police say they have no suspects or motive.

During a recent interview, Lil Lonnie said:

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.

I’m willing to open the door to everybody.

My condolences to his the Taylor family during this difficult time.
