Hurricane Chris Found Not Guilty of Second-Degree Murder

The Louisiana rapper was also acquitted of a charge of illegal possession of stolen things

Hurricane Chris has been acquitted of felony charges of second-degree murder and illegal possession of stolen things, The Associated Press reports. The rapper had been charged in connection with the June 2020 shooting death of 32-year-old Danzeria O. Farris Jr. in Shreveport, Louisiana.

In a statement to The Shade Room, Hurricane Chris said, “I wanna thank God, my attorneys at the Washington & Wells Law Firm, and my family for standing with me as my life was on the line. They wanted to give me life if I was found guilty. Now I can hug my son and think about raising him to be a man. This situation drained me and affected my health greatly. God, I give You all the glory. I got my life back, and words can’t explain how I feel. Thanks to everyone who wished me well.”

Hurricane Chris is best known for his 2007 single “A Bay Bay.” His most recent full-length, King Cane, arrived in 2017, and he more recently released the song “Stepped On” in December 2022.
