KingFace aka Larry Henry is the rapper and social media star who is known for his support of Donald Trump who died on September 29, friends said on social media. He was 38 years old.
KingFace’s friend, fellow conservative activist Rob Smith, confirmed the rapper’s death in a post on Facebook. Smith referred to KingFace as being “a really deep, intellectual” and “kind” man. Fellow conservative rapper, Bryson Gray, tweeted, “RIP TO KINGFACE. One of the realest people I’ve ever met. He was the first person in the MAGA movement to post my music on Instagram. His video is the reason I bought the “Big MAGA hat”. He was the first person to let me perform with him during blexit. RIP.”
KingFace is survived by his wife, Marion Krouser. In August 2020, a GoFundMe page was set up in order to help Krouser to pay for her husband’s medical bills. The fundraising page said that KingFace was being treated in the intensive care unit of “one of the best hospitals” in New York City. At the time of writing, the page has raised close to $80,000.

According to his Facebook page, KingFace was living in Queens, New York, at the time of his death. In February 2020, fellow New York rapper Talib Kweli took issue with KingFace in a social media post.
KingFace told The Epoch Times in a January 2020 feature that he was born in Florida but moved to Brooklyn, New York with his father when he was three years old.
The rapper described himself as a “troubled youth” who grew up around drugs, violence and gang activity. KingFace said that he was arrested and kicked out of school in his youth. During the same interview, KingFace1 said that he was still a member of the Bloods gang but was inactive. KingFace1 said that he was the only person in his neighborhood who was not a member of the Crips gang.

Liberals are literally being racist to our face blatantly. I’m supposed to think the way you think I’m supposed to think because of the color of my skin? Are you serious? Racism has been exposed through Trump being president. He’s exposed the real racism.
