    Mark Stenberg, known as Blu Crush, was promoting his second album in Houston when someone shot him several times in the chest.

    and

    Aurelia Stenberg said her husband had a troubled life as a former gang member. But she said he began to turn things around three years ago when he became a rapper.

    "He was a good person,” Aurelia Stenberg said. "He really wanted to do something for everyone."


    So sad as it sounds as if he was trying to turn his life around.

    See, now THIS one is in the right category.

    Do rappers hold grudges? It seems like even if someone is trying to turn their life around, their past comes back to haunt them. So sad.

    I really like that name: Blu Crush.

    LOL So ya did. Now we need Peter Hamilton to come on and say something negative about rappers. This guy has five children. Former gang member? I doubt he got shot by another rapper.

    It's sad this man got killed, it seems he was turning his life around and had plans to help the poor and troubled kids.

    :silenced::silenced::silenced::silenced: I guess that's all I can say about your comment, so I don't get banned!!! LOL

    Taxi, I do think rappers hold grudges. Tupac and Biggie Smalls come to mind for some reason!

    Yes tez they do!! But he was a new rapper so IMO this has to do with his past, the gang members.

    BTW It was such a sad loss the day Tupac was killed, he is my favorite. This is one of my fav songs by him. Even if you dont like rap, IMO you will love this song

    Yes, it was a very sad day. I thought he had a great acting career ahead of him also.

    O/T, Indy, I love the name Marley!!! I am so happy things are going OK for you!:blowkiss:

    Most gangs adhere to the philosophy of once a gang member, always a gang member. Leaving can get you in big trouble, even killed.
