Fans are mourning the fatal shooting of Kevin Fret, one of Puerto Rico’s only openly urban music artists. The rapper, who was 24, was shot several times as he was riding his motorcycle early Thursday morning in Santurce, Puerto Rico, a neighborhood in the San Juan metro area. Police are still investigating the circumstances surrounding his death, according to reports, though they gave out information about a possible suspect. Fret broke into Latin trap music with his debut single “Soy Así,” which translates to “I’m this way,” a song that celebrates being unapologetic about one’s life. This was a sentiment Fret subscribed to and he encouraged others to do the same as an outspoken advocate for the LGBT community.
