What a sad day for Meek Mill. The rapper lost his cousin after he was gunned down in Philadelphia, and he has been grieving ever since. He took to Instagram to vent his frustrations about the violent event, and his thoughts are haunting to read. See his terribly sad messages here.
Meek Mill, 29, must be devastated right now, as he mourns the death of his 21-year-old cousin, Angelo Colon. On Sept. 13, the young man was fatally shot in the head and was pronounced dead when medics arrived at the scene. His death happened to be one of five murders in the city over the course of 15 hours, according to NBC. What a horrific series of events!
Meek did not let much time pass before he took to Instagram to pay tribute to his cousin, who died far too young. “D**n Lo! Watching my family die to these philly streets! Probation is the only thing that got me tied to come coming back here so frequent!! My mission is to save my family from these streets and change the mindframe of all my lil cousins growing up in it!!!! #RIPLO hurt me to see you in this same spot lifeless!”
The Philly native posted another somber message, where he shared the last texts he exchanged with his young cousin. “The moment you say ‘put the gunz down’ and try to do the best for yourself is when things never go right! That’s why I have a hard time telling these young kids not to protect themselves in a environment surronded by evil!” To lose someone so young is so tragic. Our thoughts are with Meek and his family today.
