MILWAUKEE (PIX11/WITI) - The list of rap legends who died before their time is a long one — but it doesn’t include Milwaukee-based “Jakitdown” who claimed have died in a car accident to avoid child support payments, prosecutors say.

Jakitdown, whose name is actually John McCroy, has been called out by real stars Tyrese and P. Diddy for abandoning his children while boasting about cars and money, according to FOX6.

While some might be embarrassed by the critical memes, comments and tweets, McCroy is trying to leverage whatever attention he’s getting into hip-hop stardom, according to the station.[pullquote align=”right”]”Stacks and stacks of money, all this jewelry, the cars. I was just like ‘Wow, really?'”[/pullquote]

McCroy, who faces five felony charges of failure to pay child support, was apparently involved in a car crash in 2009 — an accident that he still claims killed him.

He recently told FOX6 he hasn’t made any payments because “I was ineligible to pay…

A recording reveals the 911 caller did not know if the weapon was real. Wendy Urquhart reports

A 12-year-old boy has been shot dead by police in the US city of Cleveland, after carrying what turned out to be a replica gun in a playground.

Police say an officer fired two shots at the boy after he failed to obey an order to raise his hands.

A caller reported the boy to police for scaring people with a gun but said that he did not know if it was real.

One of the officers was in his first year on the local force, the other had more than 10 years of experience.

The medical examiner for Cuyahoga County identified the boy as Tamir Rice.

The boy was shot on Saturday afternoon and died in hospital early on Sunday morning.

Cleveland deputy police chief Ed Tomba said the boy was…

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The final weekend before the Thanksgiving holiday passed without a grand jury decision on whether to indict a Ferguson police officer, fueling new speculation about the timing as protesters demand he be indicted in the death of Michael Brown.

After meeting Friday but apparently not reaching a decision, the grand jury was widely expected to reconvene on Monday to consider possible charges against Darren Wilson, the white suburban St. Louis officer who fatally shot the black 18-year-old after a confrontation in August. There was no official confirmation about when the grand jury would meet again.

Reggie Cunningham was among Sunday night’s protesters. He said he doubted Wilson will be indicted and felt like authorities were delaying an announcement “to spin this in the most positive way possible.”

“The more that they drag this out, the angrier people are going to be,” said Cunningham…

The “Power Trip” rapper also spoke about the idea of early retirement. He says it’s not something he is thinking about but if his upcoming album was his last that he would be content with that.

“I don’t know. I love doing it, so I’m not going to use that as [a sales pitch], like, “Last album—make sure you go out and buy.” But I’m content if this is my last one, going out like this. Listen to all my music and you’ll hear this nigga who went to New York City and started with a dream; he gained his confidence and his step with The Warm Up and…
