Rapper Foolio catches some heat for dissing late rapper JayDaYoungan as his sister mourns his death.
Gun violence continues to plague the hip-hop community, with many of the youngest and brightest rappers losing their lives to bullets. In the latest tragedy to hit the rap world, police have confirmed that JayDaYoungan passed away after he was shot in Bogalusa, Lousiana, yesterday, July 27.
The rising star was confirmed dead at just 24 years old. During the incident, his father was also shot but survived the ordeal and is said to be in stable condition at a hospital. The loss has plunged his family into mourning, and his sister Kenya Janell could not hold back her grief as she took to Instagram to deliver a heartfelt message.

Janell poured her heart out as she tried to come to terms with the devastating loss of her brother.
“I’m so sorry. I love you so much!!! Sister is so hurt. I literally watched you grow from the ground up [with] this rapping sh*t! You [were] the goat in my eyes, especially from where we come from baby I’m so sorry!!!!!” she added before promising that his life would be celebrated in his hometown.
