An aspiring rapper was at the wheel of a Maserati that was involved in a rolling shootout in Las Vegas, police say.

Police are hunting the occupants of a black Range Rover who opened fire on the Maserati as it headed north on Las Vegas Boulevard.

The Maserati’s driver, identified by family members as Kenneth Cherry Jr., died after his Maserati slammed into a taxi and burst into flames on the busy Las Vegas strip, 2 blocks from where rapper Tupac was shot.

The taxi driver, Michael Boldon, 62, and his passenger also died, CNN reports.

A passenger inside the Maserati survived the crash.

“It is gut-wrenching,” Boldon’s brother, Tehran Boldon told KVVU. “My life mission will be to see them punished and brought to justice for the senseless thing they did.”

Police say an argument in a hotel parking lot preceded the shootout. The shooting and car cash occurred near Las Vegas’ biggest tourist destinations: Caesars Palace, the Bellagio, Bally’s and the Flamingo.

“Out of everyone I know in the rapping industry, there is no way I would have ever, ever expected to find that he was shot on the Las Vegas Strip in such an aggressive manner,” said Vicki Greco, Cherry’s attorney. “He didn’t have a (criminal) record or a history. He was just a good kid trying to make it and be a good father.”
Cherry had two children, she said.

Good father or not, Cherry glorified a violent lifestyle and now he’s fallen victim to that lifestyle. No one should be surprised.

As Ed Dunn said so eloquently:

There is a glorification in the Black community by Black women to date these thug scumbags and try to dismiss good brothas out there. Then when ish goes predictably bad, cats don’t want to talk about it. I’m tired of that kind of nonsense in the Black community – that’s why our communities are so f*cked up because people want to walk around pretending ish, playing with fire and act shocked when things go predictably wrong.
