Silento Officially Charged: Rapper Faces Trial For The Murder Of His Cousin
We often get shocking news from the rap world in America, and many stars have already been in prison. It was only in November that it became known that a US rapper allegedly killed a musician in his studio. In Georgia, rapper Silento, whose real name is Ricky Lamar Hawk, has now been charged by a “grand jury”. The rap star is charged with shooting his cousin and will face four different charges: willful murder, homicide resulting from another crime, aggravated assault, and possession of guns while committing a crime. He is currently still being held without bail. After his arrest in February, the Silento press secretary announced that he had suffered from several severe mental illnesses in recent years and asked for positive energies for the rapper and his family.
Back in February, Chanel Hudson, Silento’s publicist, said during a conversation that the rapper has been suffering from mental health illness issues. Silento is one of the most loved upcoming rappers in the USA. His single “Watch Me” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s chart of R&B and hip-hop songs.
