It’s one thing to find an artist you want to see doesn’t have any scheduled dates in your area, it’s another to find there won’t be one for the next couple of years. Much love to King Fantastic’s Killer Reese, who was recently sentenced to four years in state prison for what we can only assume was some crazy ass shit. Details are hard to come by, but this is rough news nonetheless.
For the uninitiated, King Fantastic is a gangster ass electro rap outfit from Venice Beach consisting of Killer Reese and his producer, Troublemaker. They’re an earth-shaking combination of South Central-inspired lyricism and nasty bumpin’ bass. They released their latest, SocioPoliticalPimpTalk EP earlier this year, and aside from some remixes from Troublemaker – it’s likely the last we’ll see for a while. What a shame.
All we can do now is throw a Coastal Shindig and pour one out for the homie.
