Having to deal with violence in our society and especially within our hip hop community has become increasingly common. We see a steady increase in the number of gun crimes against hip hop artists and rappers. We also see the emergence of a new generation of artists. We are seeing young greats such as Chrisean Rock, Gillie Da Kid, and Young Greatness. Despite these young artists’ successes, gun violence in our society and hip hop culture continues to increase.
Gillie Da Kid
During a recent podcast hosted by Gillie Da Kid, a podcast aficionado and one time radio personality, the rapper was challenged to perform a task. While the question posed by the questioner was a tad cryptic, the podcaster managed to elicit the required response from his guest, former pop star Juelz Santana.
The challenge entailed a performance of the song “Me and My Gucci,” which sounded a little hokey. While the aforementioned song was performed in a live setting, the challenge was performed in front of the camera. The rapper did a decent job of performing the song, and in the process showed off his sexy-sexy manoeuvres. After the performance was over, a security guard arrived and the rapper stomped on him. This, according to the rapper’s Instagram page, was the most impressive feat.
The question is – how did he do it? The answer, according to Gillie Da Kid, is simple. Several law enforcement agencies have asked for his cooperation, and the rapper has promised to cooperate, as has Juelz Santana.
Several months ago, New Orleans native Blueface, a.k.a Theodore Jones, was tasked with the job of introducing his new girlfriend Chrisean Rock to the fine folks of the Crescent City. Blueface had been residing in Houston following Hurricane Katrina, and had attracted the attention of a number of local heroes. Among the more noteworthy were Blueface’s fellow rappers 50 Cent and Young Meezy. The duo will be seen together in the upcoming Zeus Network special “Crazy In Love”. They will also star in a new video called “Curved Oculus” (which translates to “Curved Ocular”). The video also features Blueface’s cousins and other local celebrities. The duo will be seen in a number of promotional videos and other media events in the months to come.
Blueface was also a pugilist (a.k.a a rap artist) and was a member of the gang that put the Houston rap scene on the map. His notable accomplishments include the aforementioned hit in the biz and a number of notable releases in the burgeoning hip hop renaissance. The aforementioned renaissance had its share of controversy, but a good rap is a good rap.
Earlier this week, Blueface was arrested for attempted murder and discharging a gun into an occupied structure in Las Vegas. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center after being taken into custody in an undercover sting operation.
Chrisean Rock, who has been dating Blueface for the past year, was with him when he was arrested. The pair were in Vegas for the Baddies West event. They were also seen partying in Phoenix.
The couple’s relationship has been rocky. They have had multiple fights, and Blueface has cheated on Rock multiple times. It’s unclear why Chrisean would want to break up with her boyfriend. However, she’s sticking by him and is supporting him throughout the process of his conviction.
Shortly after Blueface’s arrest, Chrisean posted a message on Twitter. She wrote, “ugh why gotta take you from me” and used a heart-broken face emoji. She also shared a video of herself with Blueface hours before his arrest.
Gun violence amongst and against hip-hop artists has continued to surge
During the past five years, gun-related deaths have plagued the hip-hop community. This includes rappers and other artists who were killed at young ages. These artists were also killed in cities with a high gang presence.
The recent death of rapper Takeoff, a member of the hip-hop trio Migos, raises the question of gun violence in America. Takeoff was 20 years old when he was shot to death. He was attending a private party with his cousin Offset when he was killed. This is the latest in a long line of rappers who have been killed by gun violence.
Other artists who have been killed by gun violence include PnB Rock, TDott Woo, and King Von. These rappers were all killed in a violent robbery in Koreatown, Los Angeles.
In addition to rappers, many other people have been killed by gun violence over the past year, including rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was killed in a premeditated attack. There have been over 53 deaths from firearms every single day in the U.S.
