Meek Mill’s Cousin Shot and Killed in Philadelphia

Meek Mill’s cousin, 21-year-old Angelo Colon, was fatally shot during a series of shootings and stabbings that took place last night in Philadelphia.

According to TMZ, Colon was shot in the head Tuesday night and was pronounced dead at the scene. A grieving Meek Mill took to Instagram this morning to pay respects to his fallen family member, and used the opportunity to remind his followers of his overall mission with respect to his native Philadelphia.

“Damn Lo! Watching my family die to these philly streets! ,” starts Meek, who has called Philadelphia home since he was born in 1987. He continues on to say, “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!”

Since his release from prison last year, Meek has been vocal about gun violence, and the trauma it brings to neighborhoods and families. Earlier this summer on Instagram, he talked briefly about his newfound responsibility as a star artist, and his unwillingness to glorify “extreme violence” in the future.

Once I found out I wasn’t born to fail and just fall victim to a fake ass life that don’t offer shit but a jail,death i carry myself with extreme confidence and I know my value… even tho that’s where we came from and all most of us has ever experienced in life! Wake up! Don’t question my raps because it’s a life we lived and suffered from, I have a right to express my myself! BY THE WAY ….AFTER DC4 I won’t continue to rap about extreme violence!!! But I will remain to let my people know in these terrible environments to adapt and survive at any cost because “US BLACK PEOPLE ARE STILL AT WAR WITH OURSELVES AND THE SYSTEM IN REAL LIFE!

Rest in Peace to Mr. Angelo Colon.
