The family of slain rapper Snootie Wild is calling for justice after he was found dead in a ditch.
“We are devastated by the untimely passing of our beloved LePreston Porter, known to the world as gold-selling and Billboard charting Hip Hop recording artist Snootie Wild,” the statement reads.
“He meant the world to us. A son, loving boyfriend, brother to four sisters, a father of seven, and a nephew and cousin to a host of others, he held many roles within our family and was a big kid at heart. LePreston was a beautiful, compassionate and talented soul whose presence was ever felt within our family.”
Cops found the rapper in the ditch suffering from gunshot wounds to the neck and head. A woman told police that the rapper walked up to her and pointed a gun at her. She fled and later heard gunshots.
Cops say the unknown suspects fled the scene in a dark-colored sedan.
