There have been a lot of shooting incidents in 2020 where rappers like Pop Smoke, Huey, Nick Blixky, Mac P Dawg, King Von and KJ Balla were shot and killed. Brygreatah’s shooting incident comes a month after rapper Meek Mill asked the new generation of native Philly rappers to "stop beefin’". The renowned rapper then had to face a lot of backlash on the Internet for the same.
The ‘Ima Boss’ hitmaker, who has more than 10 million followers on Twitter, had posted a series of tweets. The first one said, “I’ll get all the main big artist in philly a deal if they put them bodies behind them and squash them beefs ...I hear about ....got some hot young bulls from my city but they all beefing!” He then posted, “And that’s just an idea but I’ll push thru with my city if y’all make it thing! It’s like 5 clicks that’s talented but they deep in! And get they most attention when they beefing!” The American rapper added another tweet saying, “And when I say bodies I mean friends or family you lost!”
Meek Mill has been a strong advocate against violence in his hometown for a long time. In March 2020, the rap heavyweight had condemned the violence in his tweet saying, as reported by the pop culture website Complex, “The amount of animosity built up in my hood got the young bulls killing each other 200mph while a virus chasing their parents down to kill them too! Somebody gotta identify what happened to our mindframe in certain cities! The hate level too high for blacks.” Meek had also added then in one of his earlier tweets, "One day we gotta have the convo about the hood mindframe (n-word) being brainwashed to fail ... simple as — if you went to jail 5 times for selling dope try weed or a job 'switch it up' if you got shot on that corner twice 'it’s ya life' try a new area ... at least try to win! ... I’m speaking on my city.. I just know we smarter than that!”
A few of the social media users also took to Twitter to speak about rapper Brygreatah being shot. One asked, “When will these shootings stop?” Another expressed, “So sad...these random violent acts of crime has got to stop!!! Come on ppl...#fightthepowersthatbe” One added, “Rising Philly rapper Brygreatah was shot today in his hometown. Prayers out to him.”
