LAS VEGAS, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Ken Cherry, a 27-year-old rapper shot to death in Las Vegas, is being remembered by family and friends as a "nice, nice kid" and "good man."

The aspiring hip-hop artist known as Kenny Clutch died after his Maserati was fired upon by unknown assailants in a Range Rover early Thursday. His car sped into an intersection, slamming into a taxi, which exploded, killing the driver and a passenger.

No arrests had been made in the incident, the Los Angeles Times reported.

"Right now my heart is breaking," Pat Sims, Cherry's aunt, told the Oakland Tribune. "This has really been a tragedy. Kenny was just a delightful kid."

"I can tell you this ... the world has lost a good man," Sims said. "I'm not saying he didn't have his faults, but he was very kind, especially to older people. Whatever happened in Vegas, I don't know about, but he was a very kind soul."

His attorney, Vicki Greco, told the newspaper Cherry "was into gangsta rap, but that's not who he was."

"He was honest. He was loyal. He was very dependable. Sometimes, he'd drop by my office just to say hello. He was a nice, nice kid," Greco said.
