Is rapper on the list of most dangerous professions?
And, until now I thought the most dangerous were fishing and logging.
Roofers,rappers and 7/11 clerks have the most dangerous jobs in the country.
All that fortune
All that fame.......
North American euphemism for a member of the urban criminal class. This unusual occupation is usually mentioned in conjunction with the subject either being slain or being taken into custody for a violent or property-related crime. A relative of the subject usually points out that the subjects demise or incarceration comes at an extremely inopportune moment, ocurring just as they subject was "turning they(sic) life around."
Special K Icey Eight had a checkered past, but his mother insisted he was a "good boy" who was just turning his life around, when the aspiring rapper was gunned down by a homeowner after breaking into the house via the kitchen window.
Looks like it’s time to “give those who wish to destroy space to do that” again...
He was a good boy. A very good boy.
I have a quibble with the headline. he is not “up and coming” any more. at best, it should read “former up and coming . . . “.
You win the thread!
Grant, whose music videos garnered thousands of views online, collaborated with some of the citys biggest names, including YBS Skola and Young Moose.
Thousands of views?
Bunny with a pancake on his head has millions.
Don’t let this destroy your faith in the Hip-hop community.
Looks like the up and comer, and upped and gone.
“Up and coming rapper” is a pretty dangerous job, I guess?
And he was just starting to turn his life around.
Charlie bit my finger!
