A man has been charged with the murder of a rapper who was reportedly killed as he took shopping to his grandmother.
Terrell Davis, who performed as TM1way, was stabbed to death in Ramilles Close in Brixton Hill, south London, just before 6pm on 22 November.
It was reported that the 27-year-old had been visiting his elderly relative when he bumped into an old friend and was stabbed.
He was the brother of the US rapper 21 Savage, who paid tribute by posting a picture of the pair together on Instagram. The performer wrote: “Can’t believe somebody took you baby bro I know I took my anger out on you I wish I could take that shit back.”
Paramedics and an air ambulance crew tried to save Davis but he was pronounced dead at the scene.
On Sunday the Metropolitan police said detectives investigating the killing had charged a man with murder. Tyrece Fuller, 21, of Tavy Close, Lambeth, is due to appear in custody at Bromley magistrates court on Monday.
A Met police spokesperson said this week: “Terrell’s family are distraught and we are providing them with support via specially trained officers as they begin to grieve for him.”
21 Savage has been based in the US since he was seven, but the Grammy-nominated artist – whose real name is She’yaa Bin Abraham-Joseph – was born in Newham, east London. He was arrested by US immigration officials last year over claims he failed to leave the country when his visa expired.
