The Long Overdue and Much Awaited Return of Aspiring Rapper Update

Posted on | February 3, 2023 | Comments Off on The Long Overdue and Much Awaited Return of Aspiring Rapper Update

If it’s bad news that three men went missing in Detroit, is it good news when they are found? We report, you decide:

Two missing rappers and their friend were found dead in an abandoned Michigan apartment building Thursday — nearly two weeks after they disappeared the night their gig was canceled.
Investigators discovered the bodies of Armani Kelly, Dante Wicker and Montoya Givens, who had been missing since the night of Jan. 21, in a building in Highland Park, near the Detroit border, three police sources told the Detroit News. A person of interest has been brought in for questioning.
The three bodies were found under mounds of debris inside the basement of the apartment complex, Michigan state police said — without confirming the identities of the remains, the local outlet reported.
The men had been shot, one of the sources told the paper.
Squatters often use the abandoned building, according to cops.
Kelly, whose stage name was Marley Whoop, and Wicker, known as B12, had been scheduled to perform at a birthday party inside a Detroit lounge on the night they disappeared, but the show was canceled.
Kelly, 27, reportedly told his fiancée that his show at Lounge 31 had been canceled due to an equipment issue and planned to link up with his two friends to find some open mic events, the Detroit News reported.
He picked up Wicker, 31, and Givens, 31, in his car that evening.
Kelly’s fiancée said she couldn’t reach him sometime after 7:30 p.m. after texting and calling his phone several times.
Last week, police spotted Kelly’s car, a 2017 Chevrolet Equinox, on the road without a license plate. A 15-year-old boy was behind the wheel and was taken into police custody.
The teen told officers that a man had instructed him to pick up the car from a location on Detroit’s west side, the Detroit News reported.
Investigators looked through the boy’s texts and calls with the man and learned he had an outstanding warrant involving alleged fraud. They searched his home Monday and took him in for questioning, a source told the outlet.
Police also recovered surveillance video of a man wearing gloves cleaning out the Equinox.

And at the very end of the story, this sentence:

All three men had recently been paroled from prison, where they met, according to Kelly’s fiancée.

Fresh out of prison, and right into the grave.
