Rapobit: Arcani Crosswords

The rapper Arcani Crosswords has died from an accidental gunshot wound, according to reports from Houston police. Crosswords - real name Michael Francis - was playing about with his gun when, it appears, it discharged accidentally.

The rapper had a chequered past, but after police attention for driving while disqualified and minor drugs offences were apparently behind him. He had spent recent years working as an engineer at Fam Tide Records and helping younger artists.

Alongside his rapping, Crosswords was also an artist and had hoped to establish a gallery.
