Hip Hop society and the black society at large has always been hit by one big issue, which is trust issue. Blacks get paid to take down their fellow blacks not minding that they are all brothers.
Today we will be going a bit down the memory lane:
1. SCOTT LA ROCK
Scott Monroe Sterling known by his stage name Scott la rock was a hip hop artiste, a social worker, and a music producer, from New York. Scott La Rock was shot and killed On August 27, 1987, while trying to save his friend D Nice. Two black men where arrested but later acquitted because there was no witness to testify against them. This was the first tragedy that hit the hip pop society and has remained unsolved till today.
2. 2pac Shakur
When we talk of hip pop and gangster rap, we all remember 2pac because of his talent and boldness. Born Lesane Parish Crooks on June 16, 1971; 2pac was an actor and also a rapper, 2Pac was shot and killed on September 13, 1996 when he was just 25yrs old. It is still a mystery till today and nobody has found the person who killed 2pac. It is believed that 2pac was shot by Orlando Anderson, a young black man who happens to be a relation to Duane “Keefe D” Davis. The death of 2pac came with many accusations. They call it unsolved mystery, I call it well planned job just for selfish reasoning. What a great loss
3. Yaki Gadafi
Yaki Gadafi an associate and friend of 2pac Shakur who also co-founded outlawz, was the only person who agreed he saw who shot 2pac and was ready to dish out information only to be murdered 2 months later in an apartment. His killer Roddy the cousin to Napoleon, served just 7-8 years in prison, which is strange.
4. Notorious B.I.G
When we talk of unsolved murder in hip pop we remember Notorious B.I.G.. Very talented and focused young man. Born Christopher George Latore Wallace on May 21, 1972, in New York, U.S..

Biggie smalls as he is popularly known was accused of having hands in the death of 2pac Shakur which he denied at that time. He was killed in a drive-by shooting On March 9, 1997, by the Impala’s driver, an unidentified African-American man dressed in a blue suit and bow tie, it is believed that one Wardell “Poochie” Fouse was his killer but was never convicted of it. This is the second biggest murder mystery in the history of gangster rap. King killing king
5. Nipsey Hussle

According to reports, he was killed by one Eric Holder, a black man and a close associate. The death of Nipsey brought fresh mourning to the hip pop community. Nipsey was seen as a role model in his community because of his constant compaign against gun violence.
Now we ask ourselves, why are all this unsolved? Why will a black man get paid to kill his fellow black brother.
They call it the unsolved mystery, I call it the well planned mystery.
It has always been Black kill Black (BKB)
Brother kill Brother (BKB)
