Silentò Arrested for Killing His Cousin

Last year Atlanta rapper Silentò was arrested for menacing a family with a machete after breaking into the wrong house while looking for his girlfriend and then arrested for reckless driving a few months later after telling police officers that he was allowed to break the speed limit because he was 'not a regular person [click here if you missed that].'

Now the 'Watch Me Whip/Watch Me Nae Nae rapper has been arrested for killing his own cousin...

The 23-year-old rapper, whose real name is Ricky Hawk, is accused of shooting and killing his cousin Frederick Rooks last month.
Police responded to a shooting on Deep Shoals Circle around 3:30 a.m. on Jan. 21 where they found Rooks in the middle of the street with multiple gunshot wounds.
Officers found at least eight bullet casings around Rooks. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Ring camera video from neighbors caught several cars leaving the scene. Investigators later connected the shooting to Hawk and arrested him Monday.
