Legendary Bay Area emcee, Keak Da Sneak, has been critically wounded in a Richmond, Ca. shooting
Keak Da Sneak remained in critical condition Monday morning after being shot more than once, police said.
Charles Williams, 39, who goes by the stage name Keak Da Sneak, had been wounded several times and was found in front of a shuttered 76 Gas Station at Carlson Boulevard and Imperial Way when police arrived, Richmond police Lt. Felix Tan said. Officers responded there around 5:30 a.m. after receiving a call that shots were fired. Police have not identified any suspects.
Keak, who is widely regarded as the originator of the “hyphy, movement, contributed to several hip-hop/Bay anthems, including the 2006 hit single “Tell Me When to Go”, alongside Vallejo rapper E-40, and the song “Super Hyphy”.
Our prayers go out to Keak and his family.
