I don't know the statistics BUT today it became one more TOO many teenagers to be killed by knife crime this year, or ANY OTHER year for that matter.
My boooo, a very good friend of mine Carl Beatsons aka Charmz, one half of the spectacular Kid n Play Dj duo was killed early this morning [1st August] outside a rave called 'Summer Vybz' in Vauxhall by an unknown knifer.
Today has been EMOTIONAL.
He was in uni, my uni, where I met him. Looking foward to his second year this October, his head was SCREWED on! Then somebody had to take his life away, for WHAT REASON?!?!?!
Is there EVER a good enough reason? [sigh]
It sickens me and upsets me to say that this most probably UNFORTUNATELY wouldn't be the last time an event like this takes place in the streets of London. It's SAD and PATHETIC!
If YOU think carrying a knife around for WHATEVER reason is OK, then YOU are part of the knife culture in London and it NEEDS to come to an END!
I'm upset and deeply hurt now but life DOES go on, unfortunately WITHOUT Carl but hey, these things make you stronger, it kinda ain't sunk in properly if I may tell you the truth, I been tryna keep my mind off things but it's DIFFICULT!
Sayper [Peter] the other half of Kid n Play was ALSO injured in the NONSENSE that took place outside the rave and is in hospital recovering thank God. My prayers are with BOTH families and I wish Sayps a SPEEDY recovery.
I could sit here and PREACH about why knife/gun crime/ASSAULT is BAD. But you ain't gaaan2 listen2 me and SADLY one voice canNOT make a whole load of difference, everybody controls their actions and everyone knows what's right and what's wrong.
The choice is YOURS!
