A rising Brooklyn rapper was gunned down in a drive-by shooting, becoming the borough’s third hip-hop artist to die violently since February, police said Saturday.
Kennedy Joseph Noel, 23, known by his rap name KJ Balla, was shot in the chest by a gunman who squeezed off five shots from a passing car on Bradford St. in East New York about 9:45 p.m. Friday, cops said.
No arrests were made in the killing near New Lots Ave., and Noel died at Brooklyn University Medical Center after taking the bullet.
“He’s never coming home,” sobbed Noel’s distraught mother Valencia Smith as she was comforted by mourning family at their home on East New York Ave. “He was my only son!” According to New York Daily News.
