Rashad Charjuan Owens, Suspect In Fatal SXSW Vehicular Incident, Is An Aspiring Rapper & Producer

Rashad Charjuan Owens is facing charges of killing two people and injuring 23 others.

Rashad Charjuan Owens, who is being held in Travis County Jail without bond on two counts of capital murder and 23 counts of aggravated assault after he allegedly drove into a crowd of people outside of a Tyler, the Creator concert at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas yesterday (March 13), is an aspiring rapper and producer, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Owens’ Soundcloud account is under his moniker, K.A.B254. K.A.B is short for “KillingAllBeatz,” the story says. 

The 21-year-old also ran the Strictly Mafioso Entertainment company. 

On Tuesday (March 11), the K.A.B twitter account posted the following message: "Any underground or industry artist on cheap budget @SXSW hit me for beats nd promo video.” 

Yesterday, Owens allegedly tried to flee a DUI checkpoint and drove into a crowd of people in the streets of Austin.

The car reportedly drove through a temporary SXSW barricade and went the wrong way on a crowded one-way street. Concert-goers were waiting outside of a venue where Tyler, the Creator was scheduled to perform. 

The K.A.B tweet from Tuesday is as follows:

      "Dude's gonna come out of prison with like a million hits on his shitty beats. " I don't think you understand the Texas prison system. This man will not be making it out of prison.

    hip-hop is a dogshit culture in 2014, should have committed group suicide a decade ago... ignorant dumbfucks will cry "racist" yet know NOTHING about great black (& other) music, art, literature of the past 100 years, for starters. nice work, hip-hop!

      fuck, every white guy wanted to be a guitarist for the longest time, who cares. It is a culture, but there are many sides to it. this has nothing to do with it, though. the guys an idiot.

      Yeah, well, wanting to do something and knowing it is temporary is one thing but actually dedicating time on a waterfall-type pursuit when you know you are not good at all and do not have the talent for it is another. This idiot falls within the latter category. Use that time and your little hustlin' money to start a food/hot dog stand. Nuff said.

      FUCK OUTTA HERE YOU MORON It coulda all been avoided if this assclown wasn't driving around drunk as fuck and maybe just pulled over when the cops flipped them lights on and took his charge like a man instead of trying to run away, killing a bunch of innocent people, getting tasered like a bitch and thrown in jail to face the death penalty! Now he got 6 kids that will grow up broke with no daddy. Actually I'm sure his kids was gonna grow up poor with no daddy regardless of this situation. Think how many kids he would have had by 30 if this didn't happen if he got 6 kids at 21!
