Oh please don't tell me after it looked as though as a people we kinda did sort out this pointless violence that seems to kill off all our best rising musical superstars,way b4 they mature to their full potential!!(or even near) I mean cum on. After Garnet,Pan-head & The great Mr-Saw to mention a few.The world misses out on our musical talents hence our music takes longer to move up the ladder and other genres just rip off our unique style..In summary,A MESSAGE to all from our CULTURE then"LEF DA DAMNED GUN SLINGING & SATANIC MOVEMENTS" in the wild west where it belongs!! RIP My bredrine RITSO... condolonces to your fams also.
