Shyne may officially be better known for his religious conversion and Twitter rants than his music career. There was the recent bashing of Kendrick Lamar’s debut album and his weigh in on Meek Mill.
Now the former Bad Boy artist has set his social media sights on an even higher target. Yesterday, Shyne sent a series of tweets directed at President Obama, asking the Commander-In-Chief to confront the ongoing violence engulfing the streets of Chicago.
“Dear @BarackObama there has to be something the former US senator from Chicago can do for his former constituents! The genocide must stop,” tweeted Shyne.
Shyne then turned his attention to another fellow emcee and Obama supporter, Jay-Z. “Dear @BarackObama call Jay-z to fly his private plane Down to Chicago & u fly yours the same way u called in the stars to win Ohio #help.”
Chicago’s murder rate soared 16% in 2012. There were 506 recorded murders in the city last year which was the highest rate since 2008, and 2013 is already starting off on horrid pace with 22 reported murders in the first 13 days. A large portion of the violence is attributed to gang warfare involving minors. Since 2007 over 250 victims of shooting deaths in the city were under the age of 17.
