The 'Watch Me' rapper was indicted for the killing of his cousin.
"Watch Me (Ship/Nae Nae)" rapper Silento was indicted on four charges by a Georgia grand jury on Aug. 3 in connection with the shooting death of the MC's cousin earlier this year. According to the DeKalb County Superior Court's bill of indictment obtained by Billboard, Silento (born Ricky Lamar Hawk) was charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
TMZ was first to report on the indictment.
The Atlanta MC, 23, was arrested in February for the murder of his 34-year-old cousin, Frederick Rooks. On Jan. 21, police responded to a 3:30 a.m. call regarding shots fired, and found Rooks dead at the scene with multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
