Broadcasting from tha West Mountain Sanitarium near Scranton, PA, it's ya boy, FrankieThaLuckyDog, here, reportin' anotha tragic loss in tha Louisiana rap community...

Ricardo Hollins, known by his two stage names, "Duck," and, "Double Crossa," was shot to death by multiple gunshots in tha parking lot of a clothing store near Canal Street in Mid-City, New Orleans, LA, on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. Hollins' killing was tha fourth shooting occurred within a two-hour period in New Orleans. There was a man shot multiple times around noon in tha 2200 block of St. Andrew Street in Central City. At around 12:45 PM, gunfire had erupted in tha 7th Ward when officers tried to stop a vehicle. Tha vehicle's occupants stepped out and aimed fire at officers, which nobody was injured, according to NOPD spokesman, Tyler Gamble. Just minutes before Hollins' shooting, there was another shooting in tha Pines Village neighborhood, resulting in a man gettin' injured.

Hollins first became known in Louisiana's underground by being connected with fellow N'awlinz fallen soulja, Soulja Slim. They both started tha Cutthroat Comitty in tha early 2000s and in 2005, Hollins released his debut, Status Of My Own, on MDK Records. Aside from rappin', Hollins would later go on to become an author. Hollins' writing was inspired by reading Donald Goines' books. Hollins embraced how Goines would put his everyday life into writing books and would begin a journey into writing books. Hollins named his publishing company RHPublishing, naming it after his name. Hollins has written approximately 30 books in his lifetime, with Murda Capital being one of his first releases. RHPublishing also released Spoken Word Struggle Poetry Vol. 1, a 15-track disc of spoken word tracks. At tha time of his death, Hollins was only 40 years-old.
