Rappers glorify promiscuity, violence, murder, assault,adultery, and whoremongering. You reap what you sow.

Wikipedia says he was related to Juice World. What a shame. I liked Young Dolph.
@10:44 yes NYC these rappers live a certain way that could contribute to their demise. And this has been going on for a long time (rappers getting murder) both Tupac and Biggie were gunned down. SMH

This brother was INDEPENDENT. Gave back tonhis community. Married a black queen. Fathered 2 children. Plus wifey started a foundation after the previous attempt on his life called black men deserve to grow old (sunthin like that)
I say all this to say i could think of a few useless ni66as in Memphis that deserved this but not the one trying to set a better example.

Black on Black cr8me Must stop! and it starts with us calling these ignorant, useless mf's that add zero value to our communities. Every body loves cousin Pookie and dem BUT no one tells Pookie and dem to take that sh*t elsewhere. Instead, enable Pookie and make him feel like a fukin hero.
RIP family guy Dolph!

Black ppl are the only ones that can stop black ppl from killing other black ppl. What the fuck do y'all expect to happen? We take ownership of Hip-Hop, but not the violence, gang activity, and criminality that it breeds? We want ownership of our neighborhood, but don't want other minorities (gentrification) in it too? Or, when non blacks move in, black ppl don't want to "act right" - i.e. they want blast music at all hours, partying and loud noises past 9pm! I'm honestly sick and tired of niggas - truly. Trifling, lazy, violent, entitled, and will act aggressively towards anyone that poses a threat to pussy/dick/or attention. Sickening.

This is what happens when we're conditioned to hate each other more than we love ourselves. Never heard of him but that's a terrible way to go out if he was trying to uplift his community. Not that it justifies anything but I'm curious if his lyrics reflected his lifestyle. Sometimes these artists have to keep one foot in the game while struggling to do the right thing. Sad situation either way.

@11:36 ditto! We hate to hear it but will stand on some nigga shit!

after all the BLM's and the marching over YT killing blacks the question still remains when will black lives matter to black people?

I have no idea who he was, but he was probably murdered by another black male. When will this black on black murder/crime wave end, our ancestors endured the horror of slavery, genocide and all manner of inhumane treatment against our own and at the hands of others, for this continue generational curse. This is so depressing.

Everyone in here makes valid points!! WHERE DO WE START?

@2:04PM, Great question. There are too many systemic issues and governmental obstacles for Black people to overcome alone, and many that can't be eradicated on an individual basis (racism, socioeconomic disparity, political roadblocks, micro-aggressions, etc.) But we can start with small moves.

For one, no more embracing and celebrating trashy music and media which continues to degrade us. Many of our people still underestimate the powerful effect certain music and video images have on us, despite evidence from the last 30+ years. We have to quit allowing ourselves to be brainwashed by these Devils (Black and white alike!) who use our own creativity to demoralize us.

And like Unknown already mentioned, we can't keep turning a blind eye to fuck-shit and act like everything's not that deep even when it's to our own detriment. We put up with entirely too much foolishness and laugh off stupidity because we don't want to make waves. And I get it. Nobody wants a target on their back. But at some point avoidance and ignorance ultimately leads to condonation.

On an interpersonal level, many decent, upstanding Black men are doing their thing by loving on Black women the right way (or at least trying to) so I won't use a broad brush to trash all of them. But too many are still very lost and confused. Their sense of self-worth is practically non-existent. All they know how to do is perpetuate the cycle of abusing women and themselves, or they're just out here breeding, which they think is the mark of a man. They contribute almost nothing positive to society and it shows.

Because of that, I believe women (younger and older) have to bare the unfortunate responsibility of making better reproductive and dating decisions. I can't speak to the solution for getting men to act like men because I'm not a man. And I'm not giving them a pass or letting men off the hook. But as women, we have to quit wasting our time and energy on guys who don't even act marginally mature in the most basic ways: keeping a job, paying their own bills, having an education, whatever.

Women also have to quit settling and believing this bullshit about having standards that are too high when all we want is to be treated well and respected. And we have to quit making babies with a man just because he proclaims his love when that same man doesn't even help raise the last three babies he made with the last three baby mamas. Raising kids without a consistently stable, dependable and supportive male figure won't always turn out well for all involved.

Is this a perfect plan? No. Life gets in the way, emotions get in the way and everyone's situation is unique. So I get that there's no easy solution. But we have to start somewhere.

^^All what you said can be the baseline to start somewhere. Great insight!

@ms mac

Great points.

@2:04

We start with unity, respect, and a clear goal that everyone can get behind. The problem is, we're too diverse, too divisive, and too selfish. The blacks who are in a position to help are (mostly) elitist, entitled, and hate (poor) blacks almost as much as yt ppl do. Whereas, the poorer blacks are in denial about their socioeconomical status, and think that poverty is somehow related to black authenticity (field niggas!), so they see their circumstance as a badge of honor. Just like single mothers think it's a badge of honor to raise a bunch of kids alone on govt assistance. Their sense of normalcy needs to be upended and corrected.

It's hard because the problem is the mentality, the economics, and the desire to change. And most of us don't want to change.

Think about it. How many black ppl do you know would get behind a boycott of all things hip-hop and (negative) reality shows related? I mean, totally divest from all rap, rapper related ventures (50's tv shows, Jay's businesses, Snoop, Dre, Real Housewives, Love& Hip-hop etc)? Log off social media platforms that we don't own or have stock in?

The next steps require black ppl to actually speak to each other black ppl (primarily - black women have this issue - especially in corporate settings), the next step is to sacrifice your preferences for businesses and social media platforms that are black owned.

Black ppl have a buying power of trillions a year - which is mainly put into fake hair, alcohol, tobacco (& weed). If you know you spend $100+ on fake hair, instead use that money for a black business. Or, if you're like me lol and spend $100 a week on weed lmao, then use that money and try to buy something from a local business..

Or, if you're a business owner, look into your community and see who you can connect with. We need to strengthen our network.

Comment keeps getting deleted. But not the bots. Curious.

@Unknown 5:48PM, I'm with everything you said. I live in a predominantly Black area that's filled with highly educated high earners, creatives and entrepreneurs so I intentionally seek out Black owned businesses for everything from realty to restaurants to repair shops. And I make it a point to refer good people because we have to support each other in order to thrive.

However, sometimes we can be our own worst enemy and do each other unnecessarily dirty. I can't tell you how many times I've been screwed over by my own by them either not showing up for a job, much less calling to cancel, not delivering a product as promised, delivering a low quality product, price gouging or overcharging me for substandard work or product, providing terrible customer service or just plain ignoring me when I'm in their establishment. But some of these same people will bend over backwards and break their neck when YT walks into their shop. I've experienced this firsthand many times. It's very infuriating, disappointing and frustrating.

And let's not even talk about these crooked Black politicians who are just as bad as the white ones. And sometimes they're even worse because they'll intentionally screw over their constituents knowing damn well these are the people who need them the most (take Baltimore, DC, Chicago or Detroit for example). So you're absolutely right. We need a major internal overhaul before we can even think about trying to repair any external problems.

Yeah, it's kinda ironic how we live in a global age of fast communication, yet, we're more ignorant and divided than ever - in history smh. Like, illiterate slaves living in shacks understood their condition and mobilized for change - even creating successful businesses that exceeded the ones by yts - with limited education and funds - all while fighting the Klan and other yt terrorists. Yet, we - in this current digital climate - can't replicate our ancestors greatest triumph is just unbelievable. It really makes you think about the power of psychological warfare and it's ability to control the way you think, how you think, and what to do next.

I just keep hoping that one day that someone with access to billions, comes along and decides to invest in the progression and protection of black people. Because it sure as hell won't be the government. And we are in no (foreseeable) economic position to "pull ourselves up by our bootstraps". Capitalism has fucked us harder than any other racial demo. We need a lot of money to overcome our situation. This shit is Afghanistan level funding. Did you see how the government had been giving Afghanistan trillions of dollars over the course of 20 years? And did you see niggas crying about us SAVING trillions? Talking about those girls are suffering---black girls are suffering HERE! Where the hell is our trillion dollar bailout? We are still suffering and broke, and forced to deal with disrespectful microaggressions on the daily! Where the fuck is OUR community's trillions?
