    Regardless of his shady dealings, he still didn’t deserve to die. Cocaine wasn’t the motive, Look at this guy then look at his hater, they were very jealous of this guy because he had things going for him. This guy was probably brought to the hood to killed just to make it look like he did drugs when really he didn’t. A scheme to lower who he truly was, A guy who had everything going for him and those who didn’t like him were glad it ended. It’s sad when people of “very low self-esteem (mental health issues)” do all they can to bring down people who work hard for the things they possess with honesty.
