A Las Vegas rapper died early Thursday in a drive-by shooting, which triggered a fiery crash in front of the Flamingo Hotel that also killed two bystanders.

Rapper Kenneth Cherry, known as Kenny Clutch, was the target of the shooting that stemmed from an argument at the Aria Resort and Casino. Cherry was driving a Maserati at 4:30 a.m. when occupants of a Range Rover opened fire.

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department continued searching for the SUV that fled the scene following the deadly accident at Las Vegas Boulevard South and Flamingo Road, reports the Review-Journal.

The Maserati then crashed into a taxi, which exploded and killed the two occupants. The Range Rover had darkly tinted windown and out-of-state dealer plates, reports KTNV.

Instead if going after responsible gun owners how come nobody has gone after these hard core rappers.

What the hell is a "FUED"? I know what a feud is but I never heard of a "fued" Is that some kind of karma thing with these hiphop assholes? Let them go out in the desert and blow each other away, then we just have to worry about some poor coyote eating whats left and getting sick. Real waste of skin. Blues, Stay Safe.

It's time to take on the gang-bangers. Just wipe them off the earth and let my brothers and sisters still working do the job without any questions asked. This shit has gone on far too long. That will take care of 98% of the crime and gun violence in this country. We will no longer need to spend countless hours, days, and years talking about gun legislation.

Wow, Maserati's and Range Rovers. I remember 'when' in Compton and Watts drivebys were in lowered Oldsmobiles, Buicks and Chevy's. How times have changed..

Wouldn't it hurt the Democrat Party during elections if too many rappers, gang bangers and other criminals are arrested?

The rapper life gloryfies this type of crap! Too bad both of the "Rap Crapers" were not killed. Instead someone inocent had to die because of this "life style" or realistickly crap! Keep safe brothers and let them kill each other off, There is NO LOSS! Let them do it somewhere where there will be no loss of human life as opsed to "Slime Loss"!!!!!

What bothers me most about that story is that the sh!t-birds and their expensive cars get a lot of press play. The two real victims of this incident were just listed in a little after-thought blurb at the end--"oh, yeah, and then the Maserati crashed into a taxi and killed whoever was in it".
