Bris death: Sacramento rapper shot dead aged 24

The rapper Bris has died after a shooting in Sacramento on 21 June. He was 24.

Pitchfork reports that Sacramento County Coroner’s records confirmed the artist’s death.

According to police, officers responded to a report of shots fired near Franklin Boulevard and Fruitridge Road, in the early hours of the morning.

Upon arrival at the scene, officers located the rapper, born Christopher Treadwell, who was pronounced dead at the scene. He had sustained a life-threatening gunshot wound.

The shooting reportedly took place after a “solo vehicle collision”.

Bris had released a number of new projects over the past year, including the 2019 mixtape 10:42 – a collaboration with G-Man – and tracks including “Sparked a Fuse” and “Panhandling”.

He was arrested at the end of 2019 and was released earlier this year, upon which he dropped “First 42 Hours Freestyle”.

Just last week, he released a video for his new single “Need Hammy”.

A number of fellow artists and rap fans mourned the news of Bris’s death.

“Bris had just gotten out and was killing every beat. He had that slippery, nonchalant, stutter-stop flow,” music writer Jeff Weiss wrote. ”Effortless and smooth, creating a new lingo.”

“The rate of loss in this era is tragic. Rappers dying before they have the chance to really get on or have the moment in the sun that they deserve. What a doomed generation. RIP Bris. What a talent. We won’t even know how much we missed.”
