A Baton Rouge native gets candid on the dark cloud that surrounds Hip Hop and how rappers are constantly targeted within their own communities.

“No, it’s a roof but these stars say where my ceilin’ at/Can’t too many stitch Boss Mane on they fitted cap/Rappers used to be heroes, now they shoot us down like we free throws/Like killin’ a rapper the G Code,” Raps he says.

Boosie shared similar sentiments in a video posted on social media following the murder of Takeoff in which he discussed the way rappers were thought of as “heroes” instead of targets.

“This rapper shit whack, man,” said he declared. “I don’t even wish to be viewed as a rapper who is not a good one any longer. I’m an entrepreneur, man. This rapper is a shit whack. The people don’t want rappers to live in the streets, bro. Everybody wants to be our home and we’re shit. We in danger right now, boi. We were heroes before.”

About 500 miles to the south within Atlanta, Gucci Mane also paid tribute to Takeoff along with other rappers that the music industry has lost in recent times on his pensive “Letter to Takeoff.”

Just left another funeral, I shed a tear / I’m still in disbelief, I can’t believe it’s real / I think about the memories, it give me chills / I’m wonderin’ why they left the fake and took the real,” the rapper sings over Zaytoven’s production.

He adds: “Like, how the do we lose Takeoff? It’s a shame, he wasn’t worthy of it. / We’re not have to doubt God however I’m sorry, Takeoff was perfect.”

In the final track, Gucci Mane conveys his condolences and condolences to Takeoff’s family as well as friends, and reminisces about how he first had met Takeoff on the set.

“Takeoff, you will forever be in my heart,” he declares. “It’s been more than 10 years now since I saw you in my studio. I was able to tell you right away that you’d be a superstar. Your legacy is amazing memories that will stay with me for ever. There’s not a moment which goes by that I don’t think of you. We still talk about you and you’ll never be lost in the dust. Love, Gucci.”
