Police shoot drill rapper Chris Kaba dead after South London chase


The father-to-be, who was set to wed in January, is said to be a member of a drill-rap collective known as 67, which was nominated as Best Newcomer in the 2016 Music of Black Origin (MOBO) awards.

Formed in the Brixton and Herne Hill areas of south London, members of the 67 group were linked in 2019 to a county drug trafficking operation, with 16 members serving a total of 61 years in prison.

Mr Kaba was also with the group when they performed on controversial former TBEN DJ Tim Westwood’s TV channel.

Kaba himself was also jailed in 2019 after being convicted of possessing a firearm with intent to instill fear of violence.

‘He was a good guy’

But relatives insisted on Tuesday that he was devoted to his fiancée and looked forward to becoming a father.
