And who really cares?
Apparently another so-called "rapper" was shot today. This time it was some punk from Atlanta who decided to go to Beverly Hills, California. "Dolla"--real name Roderick Burton--came up with memorable raps like "Who The Fuck Is That?", "I'm Fucked Up" and Good Pussy". His loss will be...
Well let's be honest--it'll hardly be noticed at all.
This is what we call a "misdemeanor homicide". It's one where the value of the victim was worth less than $300.
I'll save my sympathy for young men who stay in school, get and keep jobs, and stay off of drugs and booze and otherwise out of trouble but get killed for no real reason, usually by some drope-smoking, career-criminal knucklehead who thinks that "Dolla" and others like him set the standard for what the youth of today should try to be like.
And I'll remind Dolla's fan base and peers that no one ever got shot (or arrested) for singing too loud in the church choir or living an honest, respectable life.
