Rapper Kid Cali, 30, was shot and killed over the weekend during a pool party in the Los Angeles suburb of Granada Hills. Police are struggling to find witnesses to help track down the shooter, despite there being over 100 people at the event.
Cali was signed to NFL star DeSean Jackson’s Jaccpot Entertainment record label, and despite being relatively unknown nationally, had developed a massive following in the rap world. Snoop Dogg, Chris Brown, Nipsey Hussle and TI posted messages on social media paying their respects to the up-and-coming star.
