King Gordy, a close ally of D-12 rapper Bizarre, was shot five times on Tuesday (February 5) in what some sources say was a robbery attempt. Although details are scarce, it is thought that Gordy survived the gunshots.
A longtime mainstay of the Motor City’s underground rap scene, King Gordy has worked with a variety of Detroit rappers including Eminem. His debut album, The Entity, was executive produced by Slim Shady and featured D-12’s Bizarre and Obie Trice.
Gordy, 35, was also affiliated with rapper Esham, and shares the veteran’s penchant for outlandish “horrorcore” rap tracks. Gordy has also recorded with the late rapper Proof, Tech N9ne and Stic Man of dead prez.
Gordy dabbled in acting, making his debut in Eminem’s 2002 film 8 Mile as the character Big O. Bizarre went to Twitter to voice his support for his childhood friend. “King gordy.. get well my n—a.. I’m praying for u… I’m on way back know to the d,” tweeted Bizarre.
