Death is truly not a respect of person. We all know this, but tend to forget that when it comes to celebrities and their families. Earlier this week, Meek Mills’ 21 year old cousin, Angelo “Lo” Colon, was killed in Philadelphia. He was one of five people killed in a spree of shootings and stabbings!
Lo was an aspiring rapper, hoping to follow in the footsteps of his famous cousin. Now, tragically, that will never happen. The violence has to STOP. Meek went to Instagram yesterday to post about his younger cousin.
Damn Lo! Watching my family die to these philly streets! 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!
This is really terrible, and unfortunately Meek is not the only celebrity to lose a family member to violence this year. As you may recall, Toya Wright’s brothers, Rudy and Josh were killed in New Orleans, Miss Robbie of “Welcome To Sweetie Pies” lost her oldest grandson Andre, and just last month Dwyane Wade’s cousin was killed in a drive by. We are praying for Meek’s family and all those who have lost loved one to violence. Let’s do better and be better people!
