MHD Has Reportedly Been Arrested In Connection with a Gang Related Murder in Paris

French police have brought the afro trap rapper in for questioning as part of their investigation into the death of a 23-year-old man who was killed last year.

French rapper MHD has reportedly been arrested yesterday in connection with a gang related murder in Paris, French publication Le Point reports.


French police are currently conducting an investigation into the death of Loïc K—a 23-year-old man who was brutally attacked by a dozen people in July 2018. The incident took place on the corner of Saint-Maur and Tesson in the 10th arrondissement of Paris and was recorded on a mobile phone, Le Point adds.

Police have determined that MHD was present at the scene of the murder, but they have yet to determine his role in the death of Loïc K.

MHD was due to perform in Europe this week, with shows lined up in Amsterdam, Luxembourg and Cologne, Germany.

His Instagram page was also scrubbed this week—leaving only one photo that was posted 3 days ago.

Stay tuned for updates—and revisit our November 2018 interview with him here.

Interview: Wavy The Creator Is Ready to See You Now

The multidisciplinary Nigerian-American artist on tapping into all her creative outlets, creating interesting things, releasing a new single and life during quarantine.

A trip canceled, plans interrupted, projects stalled. It is six months now since Wavy the Creator has had to make a stop at an undisclosed location to go into quarantine and get away from the eye of the pandemic.

The professional recording artist, photographer, writer, fashion artist, designer, and evolving creative has been spending all of this time in a house occupied by other creatives. This situation is ideal. At least for an artist like Wavy who is always in a rapid motion of creating and bringing interesting things to life. The energy around the house is robust enough to tap from and infuse into any of her numerous creative outlets. Sometimes, they also inspire trips into new creative territories. Most recently, for Wavy, are self-taught lessons on a bass guitar.

Wavy's days in this house are not without a pattern, of course. But some of the rituals and personal rules she drew up for herself, like many of us did for internal direction, at the beginning of the pandemic have been rewritten, adjusted, and sometimes ditched altogether. Some days start early and end late. Some find her at her sewing machine fixing up thrift clothes to fit her taste, a skill she picked up to earn extra cash while in college, others find her hard at work in the studio, writing or recording music.
