    Aspiring rappers’ lives do not matter to most of us. The rapper had a long rap sheet including guns, violence & drugs and was blown away by same…who was blown away by same………….. Give them time and no more “aspiring rappers”! It’s a public service, folks! If you enjoy a life of guns, drugs and violence you are totally expendable & most honest law abiding actually employed people do not care about you and know aspiring rap singer is another name for a gun toting drug user and or dealer. The community needs to stop glorifying such individuals unless you want your kids to grow up like them and get blown away too.
