Rapper, cabbie meet violent end together in Vegas
Question of the Day
“I had never heard his name before,” Creekmur said.
Kenny Clutch’s YouTube music video, “Stay Schemin,” shows scenes of hotels along the Strip as he sings about paying $120,000 for his Maserati.
“One mistake change lives all in one night,” he raps in one verse.
Cherry Sr. said he didn’t know how his son made money or if he had any other jobs.
“I want to make it clear that my son was no gangster or nothing like that,” he told The Associated Press. “He moved to Vegas about six year ago and he was writing music and rap.”
Meanwhile, Boldon’s family struggled to cope with his death.
“It’s very devastating for us, for my family,” said Tehran Boldon, 50, younger brother of the 62-year-old taxi driver. “Our family has no history of violence or gang membership that would predict losing a family member to such an event.”
Boldon’s sister, Carolyn Jean Trimble, said Boldon was a father, a grandfather and a car enthusiast. He was one of five children born and raised in Michigan, where he took care of his ailing father, who fought cancer, before moving to Las Vegas to be with his 93-year-old mother.
Bolden had owned a clothing store in Detroit and worked at a car dealership, his sister said. He began driving taxis after moving to Las Vegas about 1 1/2 years ago.
Boldon loved watching IndyCar and NASCAR races and drove a Mercedes when he wasn’t in a cab. An avid car enthusiast, he tried to persuade Trimble to buy a Bentley, she said.
“Everybody just loved him,” the older sister said. “When that car hit that cab, Mike had to be in there talking and laughing.”
The irony that a man with a taste for beautiful cars was killed by a sports car wasn’t lost on Trimble.
“He would be tickled to death: `Damn, of all things, a Maserati hit me, took me out like that,’” she said. “I’m happy he didn’t suffer.”
