According to Variety, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) has not received any information that London has been found.
Since London was reported missing by his family on December 27, the record label of the artist, Secretly Group released a statement at the time claiming that London hadn’t been seen since July.
However, the LAPD published a call for information contradicting the statement, writing: “On October 15, 2022, around 12 p.m., London was last seen in the ‘Skid Row’ area of Los Angeles.”
The 35-year-old was born in Trinidad and Tobago and raised in Brooklyn. In 2016, London won a GRAMMY for best rap performance on Kanye West’s single ‘All Day’ which also features Paul McCartney and Allan Kingdom.
His last release was in January 2020 with the album ‘Bebey’ and since then he worked as a producer on West’s 2022 album ‘DONDA 2’.
