New Orleans police have a warrant out for the arrest of Widner Degruy, better known to hip-hop fans by his rap name Flow, for a double murder that occurred in the city last week, reports the Times-Picayune. Flow is a member of Lil Wayne’s Young Money label imprint.
According to the paper, two brothers—Kendrick Bishop, 22, and Kendred Bishop, 18—were found in a car in the early morning hours of May 25 on New Orleans’ East Side. The pair had been shot and died on the scene. Flow is reportedly one of two suspects that police identified as ”possibly running from the scene and making a purchase at a nearby store.” Police released surveillance footage of the two men, which can be found below.
Flow, 23, signed to Young Money Entertainment in 2012 and made his first appearance on record with Weezy on Wayne’s Sorry 4 The Wait mixtape in July 2011 on “Inkredible (Remix),” then appeared on Wayne’s Dedication 4 mixtape on the track “Magic” as well as Young Money’s Rise Of An Empire (“Fresher Than Ever“). One year ago today, on June 3, 2014, he released his Withdrawals mixtape—presented by Young Money/Cash Money and The Flamez—which featured Chanel West Coast, Cory Gunz, Kidd Kidd, Shy Glizzy and fellow Young Money protege Euro, among others. Lil Wayne was featured on both the intro and outro of Withdrawals and the two released a joint single, “Off Day,” in November of last year which has climbed to more than 7 million YouTube views to date.
Flow is currently facing two second-degree murder charges in connection with the case. A representative for Young Money declined to comment when contacted for this story. Below are the two surveillance videos released by police, who are asking for help in their investigation. They have not released a possible motive.
