...Big Hawk. From the Houston Chronicle:
Big Hawk, a Houston rapper whose 2001 album reached No. 45 on Billboard's rap chart, was shot to death, police said today.
I'm especially weary of this scenario:
Police do not have a suspect and their only lead involves a witness who saw a white compact car with tinted windows nearby shortly after the shooting, HPD spokesman John Cannon said.
But I'm most tired of this:
Trae, who knew Hawk for almost 10 years, said he can't stand to see yet another friend die too young.
Trae also said that the violence "has got to stop." Trae's not the first to make the observation. So when are we going to start listening?

You ended that post with an excellent question. Unfortunately the folks who can provide the answer aren't really listening. *sigh*
