Big Hawk Killed in Houston

Houston rapper, Big Hawk, friend and associate to the late music-master DJ Screw, was gunned down today by an unknown assailant.

From chron.com:

"He didn't have any enemies," Trae said. "He was a good person. I just hate that it had to be something like this for people to pay attention to what he's doing. I hope people support his family and let him know he was appreciated."

Fans and friends posted messages remembering the slain rapper on the Web site myspace.com and several included snapshots of themselves with Hawk, who had a giant smile in almost all of them.

Hawk, who was planning to release a new album, was respected in the Houston underground rap scene and appeared on numerous mixtapes from artists such as Paul Wall, Lil' Flip, Z-Ro, E.S.G, Lil' Keke and Big Pokey.

DJ Screw, who died in 2000, and the Screwed Up Click popularized Houston's hypnotic, slowed-down style of rap called screw music."

Mix up some syrup and slurpee, you and boo ride low down to Sunny Side; pump up the bass and chill for Big Hawk. RIP
