The streets has been hit with sad news once again. On Wednesday (Aug. 2), UK Drill rapper, Icognito, was stabbed to death in the Camberwell district of south London. Incognito reportedly died on the same road as another member of Moscow 17, a 17-year-old by the name of Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton, who was shot earlier this summer in May.
Two months ago, Icognito kept it real about the relationship between drill music and youth violence saying, “Knife crime and gun crime has been going on way before drill music… 10 years, 20 years, people were still getting cheffed up (attacked with knives)”.
“There are many ways to solve it – you can bring out youth clubs, you can bring out many other things, invest money in other things to help the community, but you don’t want to do that – you just want to use an excuse with drill music”.
Our condolences go out to Incognito’s family and friends.
