R.I.P., Sliccs Gotcha.
Here’s a short biography, via their article:
Sliccs Gotcha is a recording artist and entrepreneur from the North side of Kansas City, Missouri. Sliccs began his recording career at the age of 14 when he was recruited by his older cousin Rich the Factor and brother Felix Mitchell to join their budding record label Major Factor Records. As both Rich and Felix had already garnered formidable underground followings across the Midwest and California’s Bay Area, Sliccs became their student, carefully watching his mentors and using what he learned to hone his own lyrical style and independent business
Here’s the Crime Scene KC report, where the comments reveal fairly obviously that the victim of the shooting was Sliccs Gotcha, also known as Jabrielle L. Francis.
A man was shot to death this evening east of downtown. Around 7 p.m., Kansas City police arrived at 13th and Olive streets on a shooting call. They found the victim lying dead in the intersection, said Capt. Mark Terman of the Kansas City Police Department. Witnesses told police that they saw a white four-door sedan leaving the scene. The car
possibly had a sunroof.
One of our writers commented to me this morning: As artists, rappers are inherently trying to create something more meaningful than the daily lives they lead. So when a rapper passes, that inspiration toward some bigger than the streets dies, too. Our condolences go out to those who knew him and worked with him.
