16 Year Old Rapper Showkey Reportedly Stabbed To Death


Twitter exploded about an hour or so ago after footage of a young man – believed to be 16-year-old rapper Showkey surfaced on Snapchat and then our timelines. The short, graphic video shows the victim motionless, on the ground in a pool of his own blood after reportedly being stabbed in the neck.

At the end of the video it seems Showkey was receiving treatment, and as more news came through – it was rumored that he was currently in hospital on life support, though there were other narratives floating around online – most suggesting that the young rapper had already passed away.

As we hear more, we understand that at this time – it has been confirmed that Showkey has tragically passed away. We wish to offer our deepest sympathies to Showkey’s family and loved ones at what must be an extremely difficult time for them. We ask that everybody be considerate and sensitive where possible as our thoughts go out to them all.

Showkey was definitely one of the scenes more promising upcoming young talents – well respected and highly rated by a plethora of platforms here in the UK at such a tender age, it’s such a shame what happened; definitely an immeasurable loss. Rest in peace Showkey.
