Another Rapper Who Goes By The Name Pop Smoke That Was 20 Was Shot And Killed

Whats The Sense Of Showing To Get And Have Something That You Don’t Even Get To Enjoy

 

I actually started this post Thursday, but I am now just getting to finishing it up even though it’s kinda been done, just never posted. So here we go again. Another young rapper said to have been shot, and killed while on the come up in this music game. “What’s the sense of showing to get and have something that you don’t even get to enjoy?” I was scrolling through my news feed on Facebook some days ago, and I noticed a News Media Outlet called…. Mid-Michigan Now that had a post up about this rapper who goes by the name Pop Smoke, that, I really never knew about until I had seen an article about him and another New York rapper I think who goes by the name Casanova many months ago; where it was touching on their differences. Normal, and typical rapper beef when it comes to these rappers who are trying to make a name for themselves by proving a point right?

 

AND THEN, maybe about a month or so ago, I then ran across another article where it was touching on the two rappers coming together and squashing their beef/differences, which in my mind I was like: “That’s Wussup!” Now, that is how I know anything about this young rapper who they say was only 20 years old, I think #7 on the billboard charts and was in Los Angeles, California when what they are saying was a home invasion of —-> his crib, and now they’re saying that he was renting it from some celebrities. But now there is talk of the whole demo being a possible hit?

Yea, a hit, and though I had did a post and even did a light video days ago while listening to music from 2pac, Why? I don’t even know, it was just in the air, and I caught the vibe. But for some reason I was, and then I seen this, so I thought I’d breath on how I felt about this tragic news. But I wanted to see what else would possibly pop up in this situation, “which it did” before I did this post. First off, I send my sincerest condolences go out to his family and those who supported him in his strive to do what he loved to do if this boy really lost his life R.I.P. It’s a very sad, and a sensitive situation. One that could and will have some type of impact on people in a way that should have you asking yourself some real questions when it comes to naught just his situation, but even the many more before; be they prior to, and or to come in time.

It’s very unfortunate where you have things like this going on throughout many different cities and states throughout the United states of America. But! This is nothing new is it? I mean it’s been ongoing on, and, and the worst part about it is that, it’s our people especially when it comes to these (YOUNG PEOPLE) who are showing to always be involved in some shhh…, causing suffrage, loss, in conflict, drama, taking from one another slug mentality and being affected by the very mess created that has many programmed to think that, THE type of lifestyles projected is the way; glorified and showing to the point where it’s being used as a way to rise up, and get paid, talk and boast shhh… which is fine, i guess. That is truly what it’s it’s all about right? But is it paying off in a more divine way?

 

What I feel is that, the whole street life way, which is what is being glorified, is being taking over into the music realm, and then….. you have situations like this one. Am I off or wrong? Or, can you see where I might be coming from.

 

Don’t make sense? Lemme give you an example. Here it is this young fella who I take it was from the New York street life, was 20 years old, got in the music game and was showing to be on the rise, and obtain a bit of success, money and the fame, but in the same breath also showing some indicators of what has also been slowly surfacing into the light, affiliation. If I’m naught mistaken, from the bit I’ve caught in the air is that he’s a part of I guess his neighborhood and or New York G-stone Crip gang life, and that’s what part of the Woo is about? But I think I also recall him saying that, the woo has nothing to do with his affiliation. If I’m wrong then lemme know, and I’ll make the changes,

 

But, if that’s true, then I think you can better see where I’m coming from. And here’s the thing, I’m naught saying that his affiliation is a part of the reason this shhh… went down, I’m saying that it all boils down to the ENERGY of the matter projected. And the fact of the matter is….. that to me, there’s naught only different energy being projected out in this whole situation, but also a pattern. A pattern that is showing something more that I really don’t want to get into at this time, but I’m seeing some really naught so kool shhhh…. that’s taking place #CanUImagine you’ll see what I’m talking about hopefully in time.

 

Y’all know that, I’m a very Spiritual katt, so I tend to see things in a way that the average can’t or chooses naught to see, which is the importance of paying attention but on a different level when it comes to stuff like this that’s happening.

 

What do I mean you might say? Well, if you haven’t been paying much attention, think about how the Crips and Bloods are popping up especially in a whole lot of situations lately when it comes to some of these mainstream rappers, which is showing to shine a lot of bad light on the two gangs, and it’s really messed up for it to be happening. Am I reaching? Well, one example is… I just seen something about a indictment of a young woman pregnant who their saying is a high rank Blood and linked to Cardi B and I think you already know about the whole 69 Tre-way situation right? Then you have the whole Nipsey hustle situation, which clearly involves who? I think you guessed it.

So anyway, I checked out the videos above, and decided to share them in this post. As I watched and listened to these video interviews, which I think was his last one that he did before this shhh… went down, which was with Angie Martinez on her show, and DJ Kay Slay for Shade 45. And as I listened a few things that stuck out. You can watch and listen to it for yourself and leave a comment below on if anything stuck out to you as far as a few things said that could be taken a different way due to the (Energy) sent out, and felt by those who could either be rival, who feel like what he said was some Ego disrespect shhh… and think he can’t be touched and or just some hate shhh…? I’ll let you the reader decide on that. me personally though, from the little I did choose to take a listen to as far as his music, and even his charactoric thought delivery. I think he really had a very good intent to project something that would be good as far as new artist’s rising for his side of New York doing music, and meant well, but yet and still young growing up super fast, and without what was truly “needed?” But I’ll say this, there’s Good Cocky, and there’s Bad Cocky.

Are The Rising Youth being Used And Failed All At The Same Time?

“Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance”

Proverbs 1:5

 

Are the rising youth being used and failed all at the same time I would have to ask since you have those who are now quick to throw out there how the young artist Pop Smoke didn’t have proper and in his better interest mentor-ship from real OG’z? Maybe, maybe naught, but did you also catch how the quoting of bible scripture was quickly put out about jealousy? But one must also question this by asking one-self: “Does the exercising of bible scriptures only tend to manifest, MATTER and mean anything only when horrible situations occur like this one?” So did jealousy play a part in this? People keep bringing up the money shown, and the jewels worn but according to sources nothing was taken except his life, and his only. So let that sink in, because why did this situation go down the way it did?

 

And naught only that, you have these new young rappers who are saying things on and off the mic, and in their music that is showing to do what? No matter what and how you, and or anybody else feels, there’s still rules to this shhhh…. and the many of these young rappers that are being put out, don’t want to listen to who and what’s for the right and are showing the same ole same ole promo of what? All and all, this situation is yet another painting of a ugly focal point picture for other races and nationalities of people; of what the outcome is when it comes to these positions of money, power and fame of Black People making them out to look like what?

 

My point? In the end I myself, I been touching on much of what you are now seeing for years. And as a matter of fact, if you go listen to certain songs like “Friend or Foe” by Zoorillaz and “Oon Mah Life” i think you’ll find some very interesting lyrical thoughts from the Great. I feel like these children are being naught only USED, but failed as well, and in the same breath these children are showing to choose that different path and failing to see themselves due to lack and or choice by reject of better guidance?

 

Final Thoughts. There’s always more to it, and way more than meets the eyes. And as I been telling y’all, it’s the #battleofthemind and if people don’t start taking a better look at what is going on, I think these people gone try and pull one on us at our expense, and gone use these type of situations to do it because look at how the one’s who got it are acting. The disappointment is going to be crucial.
