Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Lyrikill is a white rapper with dreadlocks from Broward County whose favorite hobby is hunting down news vans and holding a sign promoting his website during live broadcasts. This is apparently not some Ali G/Die Antwoord-type conceptual joke.

His shot-crashing work is quite prolific, having appeared in the backgrounds of reports on WSVN, Local 10 and NBC 6. His most recent video shows him getting into a verbal fight with Local 10's Jen Herrera.

Now according to SFLTV.com Lyrikill is suing WSVN for $35,000 alleging mental distress after being chased away by a baseball bat wielding producer.
