Cen Cal Rap Artist “Prepboy Quinn” Murdered In Fresno, Ca.
Family members identified the 22-year-old Robert “Prepboy Quinn” Reynolds. The young rap artist was at around 4 a.m. Sunday morning. He was rushed to the hospital where he died from his injuries.
Reynolds’ family said the local rapper who took the time to mentor young musicians, comes to a surprise, while many are shocked and wonder why anyone would want to harm and shoot him multiple times in the back.
Like any family grappling with the loss of a loved one and there being no rhyme or reason for it, holding onto each other is the only thing to get them through the heartache and pain.
“He was killed for nothing,” Reynolds’ sister Charlotte Haynes said. “This is not about being in a gang. He just made music.”
This family is no different. Their brother and son, Robert, was murdered in front of his apartment complex on Winery Avenue. Reynolds’ mother Tina Price said she was there on the sidewalk as her youngest child took his last few breaths
“I sat there while he was dying,” she said. “And I just prayed as I was praying it’s like a light came over me and my son and I just figured that was God telling me he’s alright, he’s with me.”
Fresno Police are investigating what is now the 23rd homicide of the year. “We don’t have any reason to believe this is a random incident,” Lt. Jon Papaleo of the Fresno Police Department said. “We believe the individuals possibly knew each other and that the individuals were involved in some kind of disturbance.”
Prepboy Quinn worked with many artist in and out of the city. You may be familiar with his 2012 local hit “Neva Caught Slippin” with Bay Area Rude Boy “D-Lo” and Cen Cals rising rap artist Baeza. Prepboy Quinn was a contributing factor in the local Fresno hip hop scene right out of high school. The young man will be missed by his family, fans and supporting friends.
