AceShowbiz - British rapper Incognito has been stabbed to death outside his home in London.
Three men were found with stab wounds in Camberwell, south east London, on Wednesday evening (August 01), a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police Service confirmed to the BBC. The 23-year-old rapper, real name Sidique Kamara and also known as SK, was pronounced dead at the scene, while the two other victims, aged 16 and 31, were rushed to hospital with serious stab wounds.
The rapper is the second member of drill music group Moscow17 to have been killed this year, following the death of 17-year-old rapper Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton who was shot to death on the same street in May.
Police have confirmed that two men aged 18 and 19 are in custody on suspicion of murder.
Friends and fans took to Twitter to pay their respects to the star, who is believed to have been a father to a four-year-old daughter.
"Today we have taken a very sad loss in our member @SK017_ /Incognito , we ask for all prayers be directed towards him & his family," Moscow17 posted to their official Twitter account alongside a broken heart emoji.

The killing comes days after Metropolitan Commissioner Cressida Dick said she believed the rate of violent crime in London was beginning to "stabilise". Five people were killed as a result of violence in London last month, compared to 18 in both February and March.
However, Incognito appeared to refer to unstable times in his neighbourhood just 24 hours before his death, writing on Twitter: "My Part Of My Hood Is Tragic Right Now ... I Walk With Allah Daily I'm Blessed."
