Sacramento rapper Bris, born Christopher Treadwell, was shot and killed on June 21 according to confirmation by the Sacramento County Coroner. He was just 24 years old. In a press release by the Sacramento Police Department, officers responded to reported shots fired near Franklin Boulevard and Fruitridge Road around 12:42 a.m. and found the rapper with a life-threatening gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead on scene.

Bris was one of his city’s rising voices after rappers like Mozzy helped shine a spotlight on Sacramento’s budding hip-hop scene. Bris teamed up with G-Man for their 10.42 mixtape highlighted by the duo’s “Blood Brothers” music video. “The whole album is really just songs for real n***as,” Bris told HYPEBEAST upon the video’s release. “N***as like us who are going through real shit. Taking risks to get a bag, dealing with opps, losing their n***as.”

ALLBLACK would go on to remix “Blood Brothers” later in the year, helping Bris build momentum for his single “Sparked A Fuse”. He’ll be remembered for tracks like “Panhandling”, released back in August 2019 and “Lightning McQueen” from July 2019, both which deserve multiple listens. Just last week he dropped off his latest visual for “Need Hammy” which you can watch above.
