Rapper Fat Tone’s Killer Sentenced
By HANNAH ZIMMERMAN
There’s a new chapter in the war between West Coast and Midwest rappers. And this time it’s Kansas City that’s getting some justice, in the form of a murder conviction.
A jury in Las Vegas on Monday found Andre “Mac Minister” Dow guilty of murder and conspiracy to commit murder for killing KC rapper Anthony “Fat Tone” Watkins and his friend Jermaine “Cowboy” Akins in 2005. Dow shot Watkins and Akins after luring them to a supposed meeting with Snoop Dogg. The jury gave him two life sentences.
