Vallejo police are saying today that a 28-year-old man found shot to death in a car on Interstate 80 last night is S.F. rapper Markeise "Killa Keise" Henry.

According to this Vallejo Times Herald story, Keise's body was found at about 11 p.m. last night inside a Pontiac that had veered off the highway and into some bushes:

Inside the crashed vehicle, responders found Henry, who had received a number of gunshot wounds to his upper body, and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

No suspects had been arrested in the case as of Friday afternoon, police said. Mustard said police were not yet ready to reveal further details, including whether Henry was a victim of a random shooting or targeted.

Keise was fairly well-known in the Bay Area rap scene, and stunned tributes poured out on Twitter Friday afternoon from local artists like Kreayshawn, Moe Green, and Jealous Guys member Ayinde. The homicide was Vallejo's 13th this year.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
