Rapper Nick Blixky Dead At 21 After Late-Night Shooting In New York City
Rapper Nick Blixky has passed away after a late-night shooting in New York City. He was 21 years old.
The New York City Police Department responded to a call in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens area of Brooklyn at 9:30 pm local time on Sunday night “of a male shot,” they said in a statement.
The rapper — born Nickalus Thompson — was quickly identified as the one who had been shot, though it’s unclear what incident precipitated his shooting, or what happened in the hours leading up to the incident. He was struck in the torso and the buttocks, according to People. Paramedics rushed the rapper to NYC Health Kings County, but it was too late, and he was pronounced dead at the hospital.
Police are still looking for the shooters; as of Monday, there has been no arrest, and an investigation is ongoing.
Thompson was an up-and-coming rapper in the New York City scene, releasing the single Drive the Boat late last year in his debut. He’d been plugging new music on social media just hours before his death, promoting his upcoming mix tape Different Timin’, which is scheduled to be released on June 3rd.
Our thoughts go out to his family, friends, and loved ones after this senseless, tragic act.
Rest in Peace…
