Rappers Lil Durk (red jacket) and Pooh Shiesty (black bubble jacket) filmed a music video in a packed Chicago nightclub this week. Chicago is one of the cities still on lockdown 10 months after the Corona hysteria first swept America.

In this photo from the music video, filmed inside a Chicago nightclub, no one is wearing a face mask or social distancing.

Okayplayer tackled the "skepticism... displayed within hip-hop circles" in an article titled "Hip-Hop Has An Anti-Vaccine problem."

Young people live in an era of rising death counters, mask mandates and state lockdowns that are unprecedented in modern history.

The youth are reminded daily of "overwhelmed" hospitals and "surging cases" of Covid-19. But the male-dominated hip-hop industry continues to thrive despite the Corona fear mongering.

Rappers such as Royce da 5'9", Freddie Gibbs, and Nas thumb their noses at vaccines. Their respective albums and EPs contain tracks with recurring themes of general distrust of the government and vaccine manufacturers.

Royce da 5'9"'s Grammy-nominated album The Allegory contains a track titled "Tricked," in which the 43-year-old links the flu vaccines to autism.

"From day one at the hospital they target our children/Say they gonna immunize 'em they somehow get autism."

On the song "FUBU," he raps: "My son got autism from injection by syringes."

In an interview with Complex.com, Royce didn't apologize for his anti-vaxx views, which he says are not dangerous.

"It's not a danger, because I'm speaking the facts," he said. "People who are against the anti-vaxxers, where are their facts at? What facts do they have? Was there something that America told them? Because I operate under the edict that America is guilty until proven innocent."

Last year, Freddie Gibbs, Killer Mike, and Pusha T collaborated on the track "Palmolive," which contains this rap by Gibbs: "Maxine Waters, f**k your poison, keep your vaccines off us."

Nas's anti-vaccine lyrics date back to 2001's classic Stillmatic. on the song "What Goes Around," he rapped: "doctors injectin' our infants with the poison."

Newcomer rapper NLE Choppa also uses his platform to spread his anti-vaxx views.

"Stay away from the vaccines, I repeat stay away from THEM VACCINES," the 18-year-old tweeted on Dec. 13.

Atlanta-based rapper Offset, of the group Migos, expressed his distrust of Pfizer's vaccine, which was approved by the FDA for emergency use on Dec. 11.

Offset referenced a viral photo that shows three out of 4 vaccine recipients who allegedly contracted Bell's palsy after getting the vaccines. But the photo has since been debunked.

Rap legend Pete Rock questioned the legitimacy of giving vaccines to healthy people who aren't at risk for the virus.

"Vaccine shit is real stupid. How you giving vaccine to people who arent sick?" he tweeted.

Meek Mill's new single "Pain Away" ft. Chicago gangsta Lil Durk dropped on Friday. This is the first single ever rated 0 roses in Sandrarose.com history.

Meek Mill singing with auto tune is cringe-worthy. He's not even trying anymore -- not that he was a great rapper to begin with.

This track is a terrible waste of a perfectly good sample from Tony! Toni! Toné's hit single, "It Feels Good."

The music video contains the obligatory stacks of cash, drugs, luxury vehicles and diamond chip chains. Absent are the scantily clad women. Maybe the video budget wasn't big enough to include them.

As you know, Philly rappers chased Meek off social media and banned him from North Philly for telling them to put their guns down amid a series of killings involving underground rappers.

"I'll get all the main big artist in Philly a deal if they put them bodies behind them and squash them beefs," he said. "I hear about ... got some hot young bulls from my city but they all beefing! And that's just a idea but I'll push thru with my city if y'all make it thing! It's like 5 clicks that’s talented but they deep in! And get they most attention when they beefing!" he continued.

Rapper Poundside Pop responded: "ITS TIME FOR YOU TO PICK A SIDE….. IS YOU ZOO OR NOT N***A???? ..."You is from 63rd bro, whatever that is. You not from North bro. You banned bro."

The Urban Dictionary website refers to drill rap as a "bullshit genre of rap that started off in America" and "somehow crawled its way into the UK."

Drill rap originated on the South Side of Chicago in early 2010. It is a genre of rap music made by and for gang bangers.

"Drill" means to shoot someone. The most popular drill rappers are either in prison for murder, deceased or will soon be deceased.

When popular drill rapper King Von was gunned down in Atlanta recently, most of my readers had never heard of him.

Also flying under the radar are YNW Melly (pictured top), Lil Durk, NBA Youngboy, Chief Keef, Lil Reese and others -- all of whom are alleged killers. YNW Melly is in a Florida prison awaiting trial for double murder.

Chicago rapper Lil Durk (pictured) is out on bond while awaiting trial in Atlanta for shooting at a man near the Varsity restaurant last year. He was arrested alongside the late King Von.

While out on bond, Lil Durk is making music with wannabe drill rapper Drake.

Drill music has infiltrated the Black community just as gangster rap dominated the hip-hop industry and helped to usher out R&B music in the 1980s.

Record labels prefer to sign drill rappers because today's hip-hop consumers prefer listening to rap artists who live the dangerous lifestyle they rap about.

Drill rap is behind a string of murders of rappers over the past decade. Rappers who want to make a name for themselves kill other drill rappers, then enjoy the clout they earn until someone kills them.

Mainstream magazines eagerly promote drill rap to their readers as the next big thing. There's money to be made in music that is detrimental to Black men.

Pitchfork.com, a Caucasian music blog, referred to Brooklyn drill rappers as "New York's brightest young rappers."

Gone are the talented, law-abiding, middle class rappers who rapped about dropping bodies and moving weight - as if they lived that life.

Music influences the mind and soul of young men. Drill rap should concern you if you're the mother of a young Black male.

Rapper Meek Mill (right) is speaking out about the escalating gang war on Atlanta's streets between factions led by rappers Quando Rondo and Lil Durk (pictured left).

Chicago rapper King Von, 26, was fatally shot by Rondo's crew member Timothy Leeks, 22, during a fistfight between Von and Rondo in Atlanta on Nov. 6.

Word on the street is Lil Durk's crew is gunning for Rondo, 21, who they believe is personally responsible for Von's death.

Durk, 28, reportedly bought every table at a nightclub where Rondo (pictured) was scheduled to perform this week. The club promoter canceled the show.

In a tweet on Wednesday, Meek, who is friends with Lil Durk, urged other rappers to "pick a side" rather than commenting on Von's death.

Meek tweeted: "Pretty soon everybody gone have to pick a side .... too much real sh*t going on too be cool wit everybody! [sic]"

Meek's message likely means more blood will be shed on Atlanta's pristine streets.

Hopefully, the mayor's office is monitoring the situation on social media before innocent lives are lost in Atlanta, which is now dubbed Chiraq South.

Asian Da Brat reportedly regrets saying she only dates men with at least 3 bodies. "Body" is slang for a murder victim or murdering someone.

The Instagram model and aspiring rapper, who is formerly known as Asian Doll, sparked furious debate online when she tweeted her unusual preference in men last month.

The 23-year-old Sagittarius, born Misharron Jamesha Allen, said she won't speak to a man unless he's a killer. And not just any killer -- a serial killer.

"Please have at least 3 body's [sic] before you talk to me Boy I like killers," she tweeted.

But friends say she had a change of heart as she mourns her ex-boyfriend, gangster-turned rapper King Von, who was shot and killed in Atlanta early Friday. They broke up sometime in August.

She tweeted on Friday: "I wanna die 2 Shid it feel like I'm dead already."

Friends say she now regrets glorifying gang bangers and killers.

Von King, who was born Dayvon Daquan Bennett, was shot during a street fight with rival rapper and gang member Quando Rondo outside a hookah lounge around 3 a.m.

Friends transported Bennett to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Bennett, 26, is linked to at least 10 murders on Chicago's South Side including the unsolved murders of gang bangers Gakirah "KI" Barnes in 2014 and Joseph "Lil JoJo" Coleman in 2012.

Bennett was charged with murdering a man and wounding several others at a house party in Chicago in 2014. He spent three-and-a-half-years in prison.

Lil Durk (right) is linked to yet another shooting - this time it's fatal. A teenager who was featured in a viral video with rapper Lil Durk's artist, OTF Dede (left), was shot to death on Sunday, January 19.

Chicago police say a 17-year-old female was shot and killed in a vacant lot in the 6700 block of South Parnell Avenue around 6:30 p.m.

Witnesses say three males pulled up in a silver sedan. They got out of the sedan and one of the males fired shots at her.

OTF Dede was forced to perform oral sex on the girl in a video that went viral. Thugs reportedly set him up with her in a hotel room.

They later burst into the room and forced OTF Dede to perform oral sex on the girl at gunpoint. The girl was menstruating at the time.

Police believe OTF Dede's enemies killed the teen to shut her up.

The rapper was beaten, robbed and his braids were cut off. The video went viral on social media.

Following the attack, Lil Durk tweeted: "The Internet is the news version of the streets just more snitching."

Lil Durk, a 27-year-old Chicago native, is currently out on bond following his arrest for attempted murder in Atlanta last year.
