T.I. On King Von’s Atlanta Shooting: “Stop Coming Here To Kill Each Other”

1

T.I. is frustrated about King Von’s shooting death in Atlanta, speaking out with a post on social media.

“Atlanta is a beautiful progressive city filled with black excellence,” wrote the rapper’s management on his page. “We uplift each other & win together. Stop coming here to kill each other. That shit is played out.”

The self-proclaimed King of the South added: “Handle YOUR beefs in YOUR city. Thx in advance.”

The timing of this is not coincidental. King Von, a Chicago-based rapper, was shot dead outside of an Atlanta nightclub last week after an altercation with Quando Rondo’s crew. The two large groups were seemingly involved in a fight outside the hookah lounge before guns were drawn. Gunfire was exchanged and three people, including King Von, lost their lives.

The hip-hop community has been coping with the death of such a promising young rising artist, yet again being forced to face the reality of how dangerous the rap game can truly be.
