Stop The Violence 2010

One of today's headlines at reads, "Lloyd Banks Arrested For Assaulting Canadian Promoter".

Last week, producer Shawty Redd turns himself in for murder.

What the hell is going on? A few folks have already started messing things up for themselves barely 10 days into 2010. Not only does this suck for these artists, it also sucks for the Hiphop Kulture. All of us are not violent, gun-toting, thugs and in Redd's case, he's claimed self-defense.

Hiphoppas need to take a good look at the situations they put themselves in...really, we need to have the foresight to know when certain events would cause us lifetime problems. We are not above the law even though we "gettin' money".

My advice for other artists is simple: stay outta BS and you'll stay outta jail. Watch those who hang around you because sometimes they don't mean good for you.

Let's Make It Happen!!!
