After his recent assassination attempt, King Louie has been flooded with media requests, and has sat down to talk about the shooting — and change — with CNN, Revolt and now Fox 32 in Chicago. In this detailed video interview, King Louie revealed he’s now survived two recent shootings, including one a few months ago where he was hit in the leg.

In this interview, Louie says he was shot seven times including twice in the chest. However, he spends most of the interview talking about change and how he can improve himself, his community and his family. Very reflective.

We pray for peace.

It’s been a rough week for Chicago hip-hop.

After losing Timbuck2 to cancer last Saturday, Chicago’s music scene almost faced another tragedy yesterday when King Louie was shot in the head on Chicago’s southside during a drive-by shooting.

Thankfully, King Louie survived with a graze wound, and is expected to make a full recovery. The support for Louie over the past 24 hours has been overwhelming with everyone from Kanye West and Chance The Rapper showing support.

This evening, however, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan stopped by the hospital to show his support and wish King Louie well. Amazing.

We are thrilled that Louie is doing well and we wish him a speedy recovery. And whoever got him that Portillo’s is a real one. That’s what friends are for. Get well soon, brother.
