Stephen Jackson has something to say to drill rappers who celebrate online when their opps are killed by gun violence.
Jackson, a former NBA star, reacted after viewing a video of Lil Durk dissing drill legend FBG Cash who was killed in a drive-by shooting in Chicago on Friday morning.
"Boy, this new generation kill me dawg," said Jackson, before adding, "Y'all was raised by some busters."
Jackson called out Durk and his gang brethren who celebrate their dead opps in social media posts and videos.
Was FBG Cash killed for posing with King Von's mural?
"The sh*t y'all do today on Instagram... to go viral... is weak. And it says a lot about your character," Jackson said.
"Y'all ain't nothing but some suckers. All this talking about dead people online after they die, and all this stuff, man y'all suckers. Y'all ain't real, y'all call yourself gangstas, but the gangstas I know ain't nothing like y'all. Y'all a new breed of punks. Yeah, I said it..."
FBG Cash, real name Tristan Hamilton, was killed after he apparently accepted a challenge by Durk to take a photo in front of King Von's mural on Chicago's infamous O Block.
FBG Cash discussed his beef with Lil Durk in a recent interview on the "No Jumper" podcast.
FBG Cash said Durk sent him a text challenging him to take the infamous photo in front of King Von's mural.
"Go over there and do that and see what happen to you," FBG Cash quoted the text message from Durk as saying.
In the "No Jumper" interview, Cash said he didn't regret taking the photo and posting it on social media. "It was risky, but, like, it's the play I made... I posted it," Cash said.

Stephen Jackson deleted a video saying "F**k ESPN" and blamed the network for creating the racist drama between its top female anchors, Rachel Nichols and Maria Taylor.
A leaked phone call between Nichols and Adam Mendelsohn, an adviser to LeBron James, sparked outrage on social media.
Nichols forgot a video camera was still recording in her hotel room when she complained to Mendelsohn about ESPN giving Taylor the 2020 NBA Finals hosting gig.
Nichols suggested that ESPN favored Taylor because of the color of Taylor's skin and ESPN's "crappy" history on diversity.
"I just want them to go somewhere else — it's in my contract, by the way; this job is in my contract in writing," Nichols told Mendelsohn.
Jackson, a retired NBA star, defended Nichols on social media after speaking with her by phone.
He initially posted a video saying "F**k ESPN" and called himself "Team Maria."
Jackson deleted the video and shared another video in which he defended Nichols. He said ESPN gave Taylor a "sympathy job" due to the protests surrounding the death of George Floyd.
"We all ramble and we say things when we're frustrated, and Rachel did deserve that job, it's just plain and simple, I've talked to Rachel and I know a lot of things she was saying out of frustrations because ESPN put her in a bad position and they even put Maria in a bad position by trying to give Maria a sympathy job, they were trying to make themselves look good because of the Black lives Matter and the George Floyd stuff was going on. So ESPN tried to make themselves look good by taking the job from Rachel that she had already had - that they already told her she had... ESPN is behind all this. It's all they fault... ESPN, y'all some suckers!"
