Posted by - 12:12 PM on 03/15/13
Lupe Fiasco released a new song about Jonylah Watkins, a 6 month old shot 5 times in Chicago on Monday. The song is a reimagining of her life and how she would have grown up and what she would have become if she were not killed. You can listen to it in the replies.

I have to listen to the song later but I just want to say this story is truly heartbreaking. The violence reaches a new low everyday. It's sickening.

Father had been arrested something like 39 times, had gang ties. It's fucking crazy. The gangs are out of control.

Can someone post some sort of "Will I cry" spoilers, so I know when to listen to this?

I also read that Derrick Rose is helping pay for funeral expenses. It's a tragedy this even happened, but it's nice seeing some bigger names show support and bring awareness.

Sad to say it but it happens every day in Chicago. They really need to do something with these gangs. Innocent children are caught in the crossfire.
