From NY Post:



March 26, 2008 -- Ex-con rapper Cavlar, who had just begun to claw his way to success with his own music and "Step Up Your Game" DVDs featuring big-name stars, was gunned down yesterday on a Brooklyn street as he stepped out of his Jaguar to meet a promoter.

The rapper and father of three, whose real name is Leval Lyde, was hit by a single shot to the chest on Fulton Street at 4:49 a.m. as his cousin watched in horror.

The shooting came after Lyde, 36, argued with the gunman and two of the killer's pals - all of whom fled.

"I saw a lady running [and] came outside and she said, 'They're killing each over there!' " said store owner Amilcar Salvador, 40.

An uncle, Clarence Lamb, was stunned at the "senseless death."

"Young people killing each other . . . is fruitless," he said. "It's crazy, just crazy."

Police were looking into whether the bloodshed might have been rap-related.

let me tell you all about mr cavlar, i knew homey personally. we once sold drugs together to and for eachother on the streets of brooklyn. he turned his life into what he was bred from. homey was about getting money and women and at any course. that being said he went about everyday life being a gangsta. he intimidated both regular and street dudes and he really was about his business. thats why he was killed, he ran across the same type of individual that he himself was and he got caught with a sandwich instead of his gun in his hand. dont get it twisted it could have easily been the other three people who approached him that couldve been left on the ground. thats how he lived. hip hop.
