Kiante Campbell Memorial Tonight 1601 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, 5-8 PM; Background
Kiante Campbell, or Kiante Tay Campbell, will be the focus of a memorial this evening at First Place For Youth, located at 1601 Telegraph Avenue right at the corner of Telegraph and 16th Streets in Downtown Oakland (next to the Rotunda and just a hop from Cafe Van Kleef).
This blogger found Kiante Campbell’s Facebook page, and it offers some interesting insight into the young man.
First, his birthdate: June 12, 1994
Second, he was popular, with 552 Facebook friends, and many from the same schools he attended. Kiante Campbell lists Oakland Technical High School and the Ralph J.

Third, his Facebook likes were all rappers and that’s it: Lil’ Boosie, Webbie, Meek Mill, YG, and Kriko bangz
And his recently added moto would seem controversial, but it’s really all too, unfortunately, normal:
A HUSTLER BY BIRTH AND A GANGSTER BY LAW!!!
