Rapper Keak Da Sneak shot, injured in Richmond

Bay Area rapper Keak Da Sneak reportedly stable and recovering after shooting in Richmond

Oakland rapper Keak Da Sneak is in recovery after being critically wounded in a shooting incident in Richmond, Calif. on Sunday.

Tan reported that Williams was in stable condition by late Monday afternoon.

Officers responding to reports of a shooting at a gas station at Carlson Boulevard and Imperial Way found the 39-year-old rapper, whose legal name is Charles Williams, on the ground with gunshot wounds to his upper torso, said Richmond police Lt. Felix Tan. Police do not have a suspect or getaway vehicle description, but they do have surveillance video and they're going through it. Keak Da Sneak is well known for his contribution to E-40's "Tell Me When to Go".

Keak was a pioneer of hyphy, the Bay Area subgenre rooted in high energy, frenetic dancing.

Williams is an Oakland native, and Tan said police believe his current residence is Sacramento. An Instagram post from fellow rapper Mistah FAB stated that Williams survived surgery, but the post has since been taken down. "We gotta start loving each other while we here, man. Giving each other roses while we here, man".

In January, Keak was also shot after performing at Tracy's The Venu, a local nightclub.

Williams has been a presence in Oakland's rap scene for nearly 30 years, earning a following as a member of 3X Krazy.

"You'll never understand how valuable life is until it flash before ya eyes", he said in an Instagram post. "God's plan can never be determined by man an fa that I'm still livin an can't nothing on this earth stop me!"
