US Rapper Lil Lonnie shot to death while driving in Mississippi

Rapper Lil Lonnie, whose real name is Lonnie Taylor, was fatally shot in his hometown of Jackson, Miss., on Sunday night.

The 22-year-old hip hop artist was shot multiple times while driving an SUV, before he lost control and crashed into a nearby home.

There was a woman in the vehicle, but she was not injured.

Taylor graduated from Callaway High School in 2013 and attended Hinds Community College before transferring to Jackson State University. While studying mass communications at the university, he released the track "I'm the Type," followed by two other successful tracks "Colors" and "Special."

Lonnie said in a recent interview that he had big plans if he were ever to receive the big bucks.

"Let's say you get a mega check, what would you purchase with that first mega check?" he was asked in December 2017 by This is 50.

Rapper Lonnie (Lil Lonnie) Taylor, 22, was killed in a shooting in Jackson, Miss., on April 29. Taylor was shot multiple times in his SUV.

"I'd buy a house," Taylor replied. "I'd buy a house for my family."

He also told the interviewer that he doesn't sell drugs and has morals.

"I've got morals that I stand by," he said in the interview.

"I want to be the next icon people look up to. I want to motivate others around from where I'm from because not too many get the recognition I do, and I just want to bring that impact to where I'm from and help people out," he said. "I'm willing to open the door to everybody."

Taylor, who says he was inspired by Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie, was taking care of his father and his four siblings financially after losing his mother at a young age.
