Shooting deaths run rampant in the city of Chicago as murder stories fill media headlines week after week.
More death shooting stories are reported on in Chicago than any other American city, and it seems like its never-ending. Holiday weekends are usually the worst in the town who has been nicknamed “ChiRaq” for its high murder rate.
While sitting down with Chicago rapper Lil Herb he admitted that he believes the high murder rate in his hometown is due to everyone in the area having easy access to guns.
Guns in Chicago can cost you anywhere between $20-$100, making it so that “Everybody can get their hands on a gun” in Chicago, says Lil Herb. “Kids can get their hands on a gun – money speaks. Money talks.”
“A beef can start with something so little as an Instagram post or a fight, like, a petty fight,” the drill rapper tells VladTV in this eye-opening exclusive. According to Lil Herb, female bystanders and people getting killed within a day of getting involved in someone else’s beef is a common-day occurrence – he even admits to some women being shot at while being in his presence.
He himself had a gun charge that got dismissed because officials didn’t have probable cause to do so, which came at a time where he was just starting his career and trying to avoid harming his reputation. To keep himself in a good light, Lil Herb has decided to follow in the steps of fellow Chi-town rapper Chief Keef and take his talents to California. “Me, Lil Herb, I am moving to L.A., Los Angeles [and] getting away from all the violence,” he says with a smile. “I wanna be around positive energy, and I wanna be rich, and I wanna make the lives better for everybody around me.”
Find out how Lil Herb supports his family and friends, as well as why “you can’t underestimate no person or no situation” in his latest VladTV clip.
At what point will the political officials representing Chicago do something about the widespread gun violence going on in their city?!
This makes no sense.
