Rapper "Flipside" from Nickerson Gardens Killed


Sept. 24, 2013

Flipside, much loved rapper and resident from  Nickerson Gardens, was shot and killed Monday night on East 114th Street, sparking fears that an all-out gang street war could erupt among the housing project gangs in Watts. 

Minutes after Flipside, aka "DK" and "Dirty Kev" and whose real name is Kevin White, was killed, a another person was shot and killed in Imperial Courts near 114th Street and Gorman Avenue. That person has been identified as Markice Brider, 29, aka "Chiccen".   

An emergency meeting of the Watts Gang Task Force was called for at noon today where emotions will be highly charged. 

Flipside was a beloved personality not only in Nickerson Gardens, but throughout Watts. 

"I can't believe Flip is gone, he was a general," said a stunned Aqeela Sherrills, Watts community activist from the Jordan Downs.  "This is terrible. If they kill Flip, then anyone could be a target."

White was not targeted, police said, but another tragic victim killed because of where he lived. 

"I've known Flip since he was a little kid," said Ronald "Kartoon" Antwine, a legendary Bounty Hunter who is now a location scout in Hollywood. "Miss Dorothy, his mom, she must be devastated.  

LAPD detectives are out in full force investigating the case.
