After months of blaming white cops for killing Black men with impunity, rapper Tip "T.I." Harris agrees that rappers are more likely to be killed by other rappers.
Aspiring New York rapper Fivio Foreign tweeted about the rash of shootings that has taken the lives of several underground rappers including King Von, Mo3 and Dr. Rose, who were all shot to death in a 2 week span.
"Rappers are da most targeted people on planet earth. Target by police, by otha Rappers, by Media, By civilians & everybody else dat feel like we shouldnt have all da things we have!" Fivio tweeted.
T.I. shared the post on Instagram, and captioned it with the emojis for "No cap," meaning no lies.
Louisiana rapper Boosie Badazz, 38, nearly lost his life when he was shot after attending a vigil for his artist Mo3, rap name Melvin Noble, 28, who was killed on a Dallas freeway on Nov. 11.
In a recent interview, Boosie shared his opinion that rapping is dangerous work.
"We got the [most] dangerous job as rappers. Nobody has a more dangerous job."
Boosie is scheduled to undergo surgery to amputate one of his feet after suffering a gunshot wound to the lower leg.
