Rapper King Louie Talks Chicago Violence on CNN

Less than a week after being targeted and shot, Chicago rapper King Louie spoke with CNN about the plague of gun violence taking over the city.

Joining Don Lemon Monday night, King Louie talked about his work with the city’s “Put The Guns Down” project, which aims to utilize music as a vehicle to promote an end to violence. The rapper also touched on the city’s police department as well as the controversies surrounding Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

“The devil is working overtime in Chicago…evil,” he told Lemon. When speaking on the city’s police force, Louie assesses them as being “just as crooked as the people they lock up.”

King Louie, who is an instrumental part of forming the Windy City’s “drill music” sound, is also credited for popularizing the weighty term “Chiraq.”
