Violence Strikes Home For Meek Mill
No one is invincible when it comes to a bullet. The reports are becoming far too frequent and the aftermath is weighing heavy across the world.
On Tuesday night, gun violence struck rapper Meek Mill’s younger cousin in Philadelphia. NBC 10 reported that Angelo “Lo” Colon was fatally shot in the head outside of a takeout restaurant on 18th Street and Synder Avenue.
Meek took his grief to social media and expressed his mission to save his family from the streets.
Damn 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 MMG rapper is among many celebrities who have experienced the lost of loved ones due to gun violence.
Last month, Janelle Monae took to Twitter after her first cousin was fatally wounded while sleeping.

Prior to that, Dwyane Wade’s cousin was murdered on Chicago’s south side.
My cousin was killed today in Chicago. Another act of senseless gun violence. 4 kids lost their mom for NO REASON. Unreal. #EnoughIsEnough
