MC Supreme Killed in California Car Crash [VIDEO]
MC Supreme, a ‘90s rapper best known for his empowerment song “Black in America,” was killed over the weekend in a car crash in Malibu, Calif., on Saturday morning (June 13).
According to My News L.A., MC Supreme, whose real name is Dewayne Coleman, was in the driver’s seat of his parked Honda Civic when a GMC Sierra pickup truck rammed into his vehicle, which caused it to roll over and fall into an embankment of a beach. The pickup truck then flipped and crashed into a second parked vehicle, also a pickup.
Coleman died at the scene and his female passenger suffered moderate injuries and was taken to a hospital. The driver of the GMC pickup truck has been identified as Philip Thomas Torres II and was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The crash happened near Corral Canyon Road and Pacific Coast Highway, an area where people park their vehicles and go to the beach. It's rumored that Coleman and his female passenger were in their legally parked car to watch the sunset.
Irene Coleman, Dewayne's sister, told My News L.A. that her brother's rap song “Black In America” was played during Mike Tyson's walk to the ring before his fights in the 1990s. She also said that her brother was a "positive person" and loved working with young people.
“We are devastated [by the loss]," she said of the family.
We send our deepest condolences to Dewayne Coleman's family and friends. May he rest in peace.
