California-based rapper Tyrone “Tall T” Franklin was murdered this week. The 23-year old promising rhymer was killed on Tuesday--in broad daylight--while sitting on a park bench with his girlfriend.
The killing took place at Long Park in Stockton, California. The gunman tapped Franklin on the shoulder, and after he turned around, he was shot and killed.
There is currently no suspect and no known motive for the killing. T planned to release an album this summer.
