Theophilus London Found After Being Reported As Missing By Family
Previously, London’s family members reported him as missing to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in late December. They had reportedly lost contact with the hip-hop artist earlier in July. The LAPD later put out a statement saying that London was last seen in the Skid Row area on October 15 after his family lost contact with him.
In a statement to THR, London’s family said that the Grammy-nominated rapper was safe and well. They also requested prayers and privacy for London from the public. Additionally, London’s cousin, Mikhail Noel, wrote on his social media, “Truly appreciate everyone’s support in finding my cousin. It’s refreshing and rewarding to have such a strong support system of family and friends!!! God bless each and every one of you all.”
No other details regarding London were released. Noel’s Instagram message also reads, “We have found Theo. He is safe and well. At this time, the family would love prayers and privacy. Thank you all!!!”

London was previously featured on Kanye West’s track, “All Day,” along with Paul McCartney. The song was a hit, peaking at No. 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. West, McCartney, and London shared a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at the 2016 Grammys for the track.
London, a long-time collaborator with West, has released three studio albums. His latest one, “Bebey,” hit the shelves in 2020, featuring collaborations with Tame Impala, Lil Yachty, and Raekwon. West produced London’s 2014 album, “Vibes.” West was also featured on the track, “Can’t Stop,” on the album.
London also was nominated for Best Pust Act at the 2011 MTV Europe Music Awards. His other collaborations with top names over the years also include Travis Scott, Ellie Goulding, and Big Boi. He was originally born in Trinidad and Tobago before moving to New York where he was raised.
Coincidentally, as previously reported by The Blast, West’s longtime ex-business manager claimed that West has been missing for weeks. Meanwhile, West still appears to be missing since that story first surfaced. The ex-business manager, Thomas St. John, is in the process of suing West for breach of contract.
St. John has reportedly been looking for the rap artist to serve him with court documents. Court documents obtained by Radar Online indicated that St. John admit that he had been looking for West for weeks without success. Now, if West isn’t missing, he could simply be trying to avoid disgruntled former business managers or associates.
However, it doesn’t appear that West’s situation has escalated to a point of a police report being filed, as was the case with London late last month.
For now, at least, the good news is that London is back with his family.
