LAS VEGAS (AP) — Kenny Cherry was an aspiring rapper who moved from the Bay Area to Las Vegas to pursue his career. His music videos online show him cruising the Strip in a Maserati.
Taxi driver Michael Boldon was a family man who hailed from Michigan; and his passenger, Sandra Sutton-Wasmund, came from a loving Washington state family and was well regarded in her community.

I’m now seeing them more often here in my Long Island suburb. Every time I see one I always think “I can run you over and squish you like a bug”.
Then I giggle (sorry Lord).
Rapping is an excellent career choice. But, like with everything, there are some on-the-job risks.
His words not mine. I guess he was psychic.
Getting shot is a necessity for a career as a crapper I mean rapper.
They boast in their bios about how many times they “got shot”. Sometimes they even embellish that number. Same with lockup arrests.
Cameras are everywhere in Vegas. I think they have pics already of the culprits
True dat. Weirdos.
He's a rapper, who is unsuccessful at it, yet who owns a 120,000 Maserati.
My parents told me vehicular shootouts like that used to happen all the time in cities where the mafia was really active-they said it was in the news often when they were kids.
Maybe, but how many black RR's with custom rims and a blank out of state dealer tags have been sold lately?
There won't be any problems finding out who has bought what in in the last 30 days.
Shouldn't be hard to locate this guy at all.
Actually, a plump pimp!
Since rappers live on the jagged edge of stupid, well....
This went down not too far from where Tupac was expired. something about Vegas and gangs and rappers.. and innocent folks die by happenstance .. sounds like the 20s and 30s in Chicago and NYC
Rap has changed alot since the “Suger HIll Gang”. In their 1977 hit “Rapper’s Delight” they ever sang the line “hey America, we love thee”.
Rot in Hell, cRapper.
But the unspoken truth is - L.A. drug profits keep the Las Vegas economy going, and the gangsters who collect those profits aren't going to spend them freely in a cultural environment that mirrors broader tastes. Thus we get loud, obnoxious hip-hop at every single venue on the entire Strip, and though the crowds these venues attract might help pay the casinos' gigantic mortgages, they lead to the kind of collateral damage described in the article.
