Rap fans are mourning the loss of promising rapper Nick Blixky who was shot dead in Brooklyn, New York, on Sunday night.

The up-and-coming 21-year-old rapper, real name Nickalus Thompson, was found unresponsive and bleeding profusely on Winthrop Street around 9.30 pm after suffering multiple gunshot wounds to his upper torso, police told the New York Post's Page Six.

A video clip of the aftermath of the shooting was uploaded on YouTube. The footage showing a body on the pavement as police units arrived at the scene.

Witnesses initially said police shot Blixky 7 times and left him in the street.

"He look like he dead," a witness can be heard saying on the tape. "Seven times he got shot."

But a relative named Nasir Fisher confirmed Blixky was shot by a rival gang member.

"my heart broken," he wrote. "rest in peace to my brother nick blixk. watch over me Brody."

Blixky had been due to release his debut mixtape, Different Timin, in June.
 

Lil Reese knows he is lucky to be alive. The 26-year-old Chicago rapper was shot in the neck while riding in a car in suburban Chicago on Nov. 11.

Surveillance footage taken from a traffic camera shows a gunman firing a Draco AK-47 pistol at Reese's car across several lanes of traffic.

Police have no suspects in the shooting. Reese was reported to be in critical condition at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

While in the hospital, Reese hopped on Instagram Live to show his haters that he was still breathing.

After being released from the hospital, Reese, aka Grim Reaper, posted an image that shows a stapled vertical surgical incision on the front of his neck.

He captioned the image: "Made 4 it Lifes a gamble I got hella luck" [sic].

Reese has become a favorite target of robbing crews and rival Chicago rappers.

In June, Reese was jumped and robbed by multiple men who videotaped the encounter. The video later went viral on social media. His attackers claimed he lost control of his bowels during the scuffle.
