Fat Joe says one of the main reasons rappers are getting murdered is because of jealousy.
“We gettin’ hit up by the police, hit up by the feds, and we gettin’ hit up by our own for being in our hood, tryin’ to show love. So, it’s so dangerous to be a rapper these days. It’s the hardest job out there right now, because they comin’ at you either way. Either way, they tryin’ to put you in jail, or your own people tryin’ to kill you,” he told Charlamagne Tha God.
“And so, what happens is, people get mad at themselves. They get mad that they didn’t accomplish stuff in life. They look at themselves, they say, ‘Damn, I’m 40 years old, 50 years old, I ain’t got nothin’.’ Here come this brother, got a beautiful wife, a beautiful family, he’s doin’ good for himself, he’s talented. I might as well just kill him.”
Rappers have been speaking out since PnB Rock’s murder in South Los Angeles last week.
