Another Chicago Rapper Murdered: Johnny Boy "Da Prince" Taylor Killed Just As He Was Beginning Talks With Atlantic Records

 

Johnny Boy Da Prince was just about to see the fruits of his labor come to fruition when he was killed in Chicago this week.

The 23-year old rapper was in talks with Atlantic Records at the time of his death.

Andrew Fechter, an assistant with Atlantic Records in New York, had listened to Johnny's music and saw potential in him.

"I see a lot of emails," Fechter told the Chicago Tribune. "I listened to it, I liked what I heard, I asked for more. I played it at a meeting and everyone liked it. We were working on a meeting, bringing him in. Get him to meet everyone before a decision is made. He was definitely talented. I personally believe he had a bright future in the music business. He definitely would have had a career."

Epic and Universal Records were also said to be interested.

 

Johnny was shot several times on Wednesday January 9th, in the Garfield Park neighborhood shortly before midnight. He was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he died following surgery.



Johnny, whose real name was Johnny Taylor, was managed by Dillard Florence who said Taylor's assailants make have killed him by mistake.

 

"Word is it was mistaken identity," Florence said. "He didn't deserve this to happen."

Taylor is at least the fifth aspiring young rapper to get shot and killed in Chicago since September.

Born 2 Reign, you fu-ck boy, what I said was most probably the truth, if you wanna do something positive, make that clear, everyone should know that's some dumb a-ss sh-it to do, you gangbang, you either get murked or you get in prison for a very long time, of course this is sad but would you rather have this punk kill an innocent person over HIS dumb sh-it!?!? WOULD YOU?! that sh-it happens very often, think about it
