Former Chopper City Boyz Member VL Mike Shot to Death

VL Mike, a New Orleans based MC and former member of B.G.’s Chopper City Boyz, was shot and killed in his hometown on Sunday afternoon (April 20). According to the New Orleans Times Picayune, the rapper, whose full name was Michael Allen, was exiting his vehicle on the 4700 block of Miles Drive at around 1:00 p.m. when a gunman approached him and started shooting. Mike was taken to University Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. The shooter is believed to have escaped on foot and no arrests have been made. B.G. introduced the Chopper City Boyz last year with the release of their debut LP, We Got This. After a disagreement with B.G., Mike left the group to pursue his solo career. The rapper’s murder was the seventh recorded in New Orleans over a four day period.
