Rapper Nick Blixky Shot To Death At 21
Rapper Nick Blixky was shot dead in Brooklyn Sunday night. He was 21.
He was found by emergency services after a 911 call reported a man was shot outside of 200 Winthrop Street at 9:26 p.m. in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens neighborhood, according to police. The rapper was unresponsive; he suffered gunshot wounds to the torso and buttocks, and was taken to New York City Health and Hospitals/Kings County, where he was pronounced dead.
No arrests have been made, and the investigation remains ongoing, officials said.
Hours before he was killed, Blixky posted to Instagram, teasing his new mix tape, Different Timin, which was to be released June 3.
“JUNE 3RD 🤯‼️ I’m dropping my first Tape ever” LOCK IN THE DATE 🗣,” the caption read.
He had recently dropped a new single on May 8 on SoundCloud, “Listen To What I Do,” which featured Tay Bando.

A rumor spread online that Blixky was killed by police after a video surfaced of a body surrounded by officers, but those rumors have been proven false.
