C-Murder gets life for shooting and killing a 16-year-old. Max B gets 75 years for his role in a robbery attempt-turned-homicide. Damn, even Plaxico Burress is going to Rikers for 20 months for shooting himself in the leg. And now Boosie gets two years in prison for drug and gun charges. Even though I shake my head because a lot of these situation could have probably been easily avoided, I also shake my head at more brothers going to jail.
But hopefully, when and if these men get out of prison, it will be a lesson learned and they will not have to venture down this path again. So the Song of the Week is dedicated to Boosie, Max B, C-Murder, Plaxico, Shyne, T.I., Tru Life, …. sad right? It’s Ludacris’ “Do Your Time” appropriately featuring three rappers who have been behind the steel bars, Beanie Sigel, C-Murder, & Pimp C (R.I.P.).
We gotta do better people.
