Rising Louisiana Rapper Ratchet Life Shot And Killed

By Daryl Nelson

Sadly, there's another tragedy in Hip Hop to report.

According to SayCheeseDigital, the up and coming Louisiana rapper Ratchet Life was fatally shot this past weekend. So far, there haven't been any more details than that released.

The Southern MC had a nice regional following with over 9,000 fans on his Instagram page and a few videos with over 100,000 YouTube views. Ironically, he had a song called 'Living to Die.'

Soon after the news surfaced, fans took to the rapper's Instagram page to pay their respects.

Just a few days ago, a happy looking Ratchet posed for a photo with two of his boys in a corner store, and before that he posted another shot of himself at the same location.
