Bobby Shmurda had a lot to say when asked to share his thoughts on the recent mass shooting in Texas last week. While hanging out with the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast co-host Wallo267 in New York City, Shmurda told TMZ mass shooters were cowardly for targeting schools.
“We pay all this motherfucking tax money,” Shmurda said. “You know what my motherfucking tax bill was last year?”
After saying schools need to beef up security, Shmurda continued to criticize shooters.
“Let me tell you why they ain’t come to my block and shoot shit up or why they don’t go into the precinct and shoot shit up, cause they gonna shoot right back at your motherfucking ass,” the “Hot N*gga” rapper said. “It’s kids! It’s fucking kids! Kids! Shoot at my black ass n-gga. Come shoot at me watch what happen.”
Shmurda was likely referring to the mass shooting that occurred at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, where 18-year-old Salvador Ramos took the lives of 19 children and two adults before he was killed by police. Another mass shooting also occurred on Wednesday (June 1) at the Saint Francis Hospital’s Natalie Building in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where 45-year-old Michael Louis opened fire and killed four people before killing himself.
Shmurda isn’t the only rapper to react strongly to the shooting at Robb Elementary. Some of rap’s biggest legends took to Twitter the day of the shooting to also condemn the violence.
