According to WSB-TV 2 Atlanta, Archie was shot on March 25 at a Chevron gas station. Reportedly, officers responded to the call. But, sadly, upon arrival, they found the victim. Tragically, Archie had suffered from a gunshot wound. EMS transport took Archie to the hospital. However, his injuries were too severe. So, unfortunately, Eversole lost his life at the age of 37.
An Arrest Made
Initially, officers arrested Krause for aggravated assault. However, Alexander’s charges were later upgraded after the victim’s death. Even more devastating was the revelation that Alexander was Archie Eversole’s brother. Undoubtedly, this made the situation more heartbreaking.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Alexander was located around the corner in an apartment complex. Yet, currently, The DeKalb County Jail is holding him for Archie’s murder and the possession of marijuana.
Archie Eversole’s Anthem
In 2002, Archie created the hit “We Ready.“ The track featured Bubba Sparxxx. And intrestingly, the track sampled Steam’s 1969 song “Na Na Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.”
According to Billboard, “We Ready” reached No. 64 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs. While the album Ride Wit Me Dirty South Style reached No. 16 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and No. 83 on the Billboard 200.
What Makes “We Ready” an Anthem?
Astoundingly sporting arenas across the country are playing “We Ready” before a game. Why? Unbelievably the song has the power to motivate listeners. Yet, even I have found myself chanting the song for no reason.
“We Ready/ We Ready/ We Ready/ For Y’all”- We Ready(Archie Eversole)
Sadly, this loss has hit Atlanta and the hip-hop community hard. Still, respectfully, fans from all over the country are showing love for Eversole.
