Florida’s Jacksonville Jake Jhitt, an 18-year-old rapper who was shot and died last night in an alleged gang-related attack, is being mourned by the hip-hop community.
Jhitt was regarded as an emerging talent in the rap industry in Jacksonville, becoming well-known for his nasty lyrics and distinctive presentation. He recently released his debut mixtape, “Bitxh Who,” to much acclaim from both fans and reviewers.
Jhitt was reportedly driving home last night at 11 PM when a car drove up next to him and started shooting, according to police accounts. Jhitt’s car was struck several times before it went off the road and collided with a stationary semi-truck. At the scene, he was identified as deceased.
