Roc Nation Signee K Koke Charged with Attempted Murder

One of Roc Nation's UK stars is in hot water with the law for attempted murder.

It looks like rapper K Koke may have to wait longer than he expected to drop his Roc Nation debut. The UK signee was recently arrested in England in connection to an attempted murder earlier this year.

According to NME, K Koke, ne Kevin Georgiou, is one of five people charged in attempting to murder a man on March 9. The victim, whose name was not revealed by the press, was shot in the back on the way home from a football project at the Stonebridge Pavilion in south London. 

British police raided Georigou's home and arrained him on charges of attempted murder. He is set to appear at the Blackfriars Crown Court on June 15.

Four others, including a 16-year-old girl, two 16-year-old boys, a 17-year-old and a 20-year-old have also been charged in the case.

Koke signed to Jay's Roc Nation imprint this past January after earning critical acclaim in the UK from a number of mixtape releases.
