About King Louie

"Rapper King Louie survived being shot in the head in Chicago on Wednesday afternoon," the New York Daily News and many others report.

"The 'Chiraq' rapper was shot in the left side of his head while riding in a car in Chicago's Ashburn neighborhood at about 3:30 p.m.on Wednesday, Chicago police said.

"He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he is currently in stable condition, cops said."


"King Louie was recently a part of Chicago's 'Put the Guns Down' project, aimed at ending gun violence throughout the city. The artist appeared on the track with fellow Chicago rappers Common, Lil Herb and The Twilite Tone . . .

"The 27-year-old rapper is credited with coining the terms 'Chiraq' and 'Drillinois,' which he has listed as his current location on Twitter. King Louie is also featured on Kanye West's 'Send It Up' on Yeezus, and was nominated for a Grammy for helping write Kanye's 'New Slaves' in 2012.

"He is also being responsible for making Chicago the 'hottest hip-hop' scene in 2012 by Spin."
