Meek Mill lost his cousin in a spate of violence that took place in Mill's hometown of Philadelphia yesterday.
Angelo Colon was one of five people either shot or stabbed to death over a 15 hour period in the city. The 21-year old was shot in the head outside of a takeout restaurant at around 10 PM. A second man was shot twice but survived.
Meek took to social media to grieve his cousin and to address the violence.
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!
The moment you say "put the gunz down" and try to do the best for yourself is when things never go right! That's why I have a hard time telling these young kids not to protect themselves in a environment surronded by evil!
