Philadelphia was hit by a string of deadly violence Tuesday, and the tragedy struck hometown rapper Meek Mill close to home. Five people reportedly died as a result of multiple stabbings and shootings that occurred throughout the city, including Mill’s cousin Angelo Colon, 21, Philly.com reports.
Colon was shot in the head during a drive-by. Mill took to Instagram to honor his cousin, posting #RIPLO, before venting his frustration about violence that continues to plague Philadelphia and other cities. Meek said in the post, “My mission is to save my family from these streets and change the mind frame of all my lil cousins growing up in it!!!”
In July, Mill announced plans to stop creating violent music after the release of his upcoming album, Dreamchasers 3. See his comments below:
