Oakland Artist 18k aka KayfrmThaBay and her boyfriend Packman die in roll over car accident

The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a man and woman killed Friday night in a rollover crash near Primm, a section of Las Vegas, Nevada.

Sadly its two well known upcoming music industry artists, 28 year old Anthony Garcia or better known as Packman, and 19 year old Karisma Avila or better known as 18k or KayFrmThaBay.

Its reported they were driving recklessly in a 2018 Infiniti Q50… on northbound Interstate 15 around 11:15 p.m. Friday, when the driver lost control and veered off the road into the desert, overturning the car.

Neither Packman or Kay were wearing a seat belt, and both were ejected from the car, Highway Patrol reported. The coroner’s office said they died at the scene from blunt force injuries. Police had not determined Saturday who was driving or if either were impaired, Buratczuk said.

Packman was a known friend to Rapper 6ix9ine, and it appears Packman was also a guest feature on 6ix9ine platinum hit Gotti Gotti, before being taken off the song. Treyway also mocked the artist prior to his death, and apparently stole his chain.

18k or known on instagram as “KayFrmTheBay”, was a upcoming female artist from the Bay Area, and had high hopes from her fans and industry insiders.

Our Editor In Chief Ian Jackson was extra moved by 18k’s death, who was inspired by her movement, and kept close tabs on her up to her death.

In a industry where being successful is not promised, she had the most promising of careers in a industry where promises aren’t kept. Having believers is half the battle, and that was the part she had mastered. Heartbreaking loss, my prayers go out to her mother and family.
