They don't know who did it, yet. . .They've made no arrests. So, how do you know the cause was jealousy? Maybe it was robbery????

Anytime I hear of a young person at the prime of their life passing it tears me up inside.I feel for his whole family.And I also hope the pig who took this life rots in the gutters of Hell.

To be young, gifted & black is a curse among our own black people - especially in the hip hop world. To kill another human being out of jealousy is sad because you are only killing yourself with hate. It will eat you up alive. GOD don't like ugly. The HATE IS EATING THEM ALIVE MY FRIENDS. And that goes for the people they never found for the killings of Biggie Smalls, Tupac, & we MUST not forget Run DMC. Why can't they find these people is beyond me. But GOD knows & eventually they will PAY one way or the other. It's only a matter of time. RIP My Beautiful One!

This has to stop. I'm sick & tired of killings. This was a young man with a young family & now their world has been destroyed for what? Is the killer happy now taking a man away from his family. These pointless killings are getting worse & something has to be done. Killing someone for whatever the reason is NOT the answer. It doesn't make you clever or hard etc. Just a f**king loser with no bottle to handle your own sh*t. RIP & prayers to his family. Didn't know him but he got off his backside & worked hard to provide for his family & made some fans along the way (will be remembered for his positive energy). I hope the killer never finds peace & is caught soon. That will not bring him back (they say the good die young) but hopefully, help the family to find a little peace.
