(FreshAsFrankie) Bay Area rapper Keak Da Sneak was shot this morning (Aug. 20) in Richmond, CA and is now in critical condition after being shot multiple times.
Keak, born Charles Williams was found in front of a 76 Gas Station at Carlson Boulevard and Imperial Way. Cops responded to a call that shots were fired around 5:30 am. The police say the rapper is hanging in there.
Fellow Bay Area rapper Mistah F.A.B. posted a video message on Instagram saying that his big homie Keak had made it through surgery and was now in recovery.

Giving each other roses while we here, man.”
Keak was also shot back in January and was limited to crutches.
