French Rapper Sentenced To 12 Years In Prison Over Murder

French rapper MHD, born Mohamed Sylla, has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for his role in the murder of Loic K, 23, in Paris in 2018.

A court in the capital city handed down the verdict, which found the 29-year-old artist guilty of gang-related murder.

The victim, Loic K, was struck by MHD’s Mercedes before being assaulted and fatally stabbed by a group of approximately 12 people.

MHD, known for his “Afro trap,” a fusion of trap and West African music, maintained his innocence throughout the trial, pleading not guilty to the charges.

MHD told the courtroom in Paris, “From the beginning, I have maintained my innocence in this case, and I will continue to maintain my innocence.”

He claimed he was not present at the murder scene and that the case against him was based on false rumors.

However, a local resident recorded the incident from his window and quickly identified the car involved as MHD’s.

Other witnesses confirmed his identity, citing his distinct haircut and clothing.
