Anthony “Fat Tone” Watkins, 24, was an up-and-coming rapper out of Kansas City, killed out of retaliation for the 2004 shooting death of Bay Area rapper Andre “Mac Dre” Hicks (it has never been proven that Watkins was involved in the death, and was cleared as a suspect by police). Watkins was lured to what he was told was going to be a meeting about working with Snoop Dogg only to be gunned down by another rapper,  Andre “Mac Minister” Dow. His friend,  Jermaine Cowboy” Akins was also killed.

Dow, who was friends with Hicks, was sentence to two life sentences.
