Wild, Wild Mess

On the previous episodes of the ASMFAFBI, we discussed a shooting with some of Jeezy folks in Miami that resulted in an arrest, Corporate Thug member Slick Pulla getting popped at Slice in the ATL, and a Beef between Busta Rhymes' producer Swizz Beatz and G-Unit rap-group members Tony Yayo and Lloyd Banks that resulted in the shooting death of a Body Guard. Today, we have two more incidents, unproductive that have resulted in two more unnecessary Deaths.

Last night in Cin – OH-Ten (Cincinnati, Oh), a member of T.I.’s entourage was killed and three others were wounded in a gun battle at a night club. Before the shooting, it is alleged according to eye-witnesses that it started as a fight in an after-hours club during a party for T.I. (Clifford Harris) and fellow College Park rapper Yung Joc after a show by the University of Cincinnati.

At Club Ritz, a group of men confronted T.I. and his entourage. Belive it or not I have been to the Club before back in the day when I did some consulting for a clinic up that camp. My boys, one of which was a mortgage broker and the other a Sports Management head, would take me there to get some relief outside of the Vernon Manor and its happy hours. It was wild back then as I recall with folks fighting and all. And I a certain that this has not changed and is likely not the first time someone has been shot or killed there nor will it be the last. From what I have heard so far, T.I.'s folk started making it rain money and some of then OH-10 wanna be gangasters tookit as an insult when the money landed on them, thus starting a fight. Twelve (police) say that T.I.’s folk were followed by men in two sport utility vehicles. They say T.I. and his folk tried to leave (good for them) but were followed onto the highway when their vans were shot –up, leaving his personal assistant and spokesman for T.I.'s Grand Hustle record label, Philant Johnson, dead.

Meanwhile in Houston, a few days before on May 1, 2006, rapper Big Hawk (born John Edward Hawkins) was shot multiple times and died. According to reports, he had gone to one of his folk’s house play dominos. They also think that he was shot by more than one person. Big Hawk was the brother of legendary Houston MC Fat Pat (born Patrick Hawkins) who was also shot and killed back in 1998. He was a member of the Screwed Up Click. DJ Screw died in 2000 and folks still have not resolved the cause of his death.

Somebody needs to get the message across that something is wrong. How many folks have to die because of greed, jealousy and personal insecurity? This is truly a wild, wild, mess.

I just don't understand where this disrespect for human life comes from? I mean kill someone over some meaningless beef? It's sad.

It's sad, but I can't feel sorry for them. They lived-up, and died, according to the image they attempted to portray. I do however sympathize with their families, and the difficult times they will face as a result.

Yeah it's jacked up, but I doubt that anything changes anytime soon.

I just don't get it. It's so intense that you think something much more serious than "I heard he was talking about me" would be at the root of these beefs. Ri-damn-diculous!

Wow... Senseless really... But like they say “you can take the em' out the hood but you can’t take the hood out of em'”. Basically I believe their mind has been trained and molded that being involved in senseless behavior is correct. You would think that money would change their perspective on life and make them want to do good and involved themselves and more productive projects. Instead it makes them want to cause unnecessary deaths and the continuous of destroying the our race...

As African-Americans, when are we going to stop killing each other over senseless nonsense.

Until we as African Americans start to value each other as an individual/and respect each others differences, we will never rise as a people.

Black men growing up in the ghetto, only know how to establish their identity thru status ie: violence and materials. Not making an excuse for them, but this is truly all they know and being in the rap game will not make any difference unless they want to change themselves. We just need to pray for them.
