(Newser) – The badly burned body of up-and-coming Brooklyn rapper Kampane has been found in an SUV abandoned on a New Jersey street. Police say the 33-year-old rapper, whose real name was Rhian Stoute, had been shot at least once. "Everybody loved him," Kampane's cousin tells the New York Daily News. "We're shocked. It's very confusing. This is out of nowhere."
