How is it you can have 80,000 people for a Guns-n-Roses or Metallica show and nothing happens?! But you get a couple thousand knuckleheads together and somebody winds up dead?

Dumb a$$ knuckleheads don't discriminate. One just proved it in Vegas at a non-rap concert.

thank you, thank you, thank you Chief Buckner. keep up the good work. Tom Carpenter is spineless and should be throwing his hands up helplessly in an unemployment line. as for the board complaining about knowing at the last minute, stop being lazy asses & find out the information on your own. Chief Buckner did. you could have too if you didnt lazily rely on others to wrap up information in a bow & hand it to you.

I wonder if one of the ghetto rat clubs will offer to let him rap?

@Slak, LOL, me too, although I'm more of a Maryland Doom metal fan.

58 people KILLED at a Jason Aldean concert last week, over 530 people seriously injured. He gets to perform here and this guy can't.....WTF!? Aldean's fans are the greater threat. I read 4 incidents with this rapper....i read over 530 incidents with Aldean. 530>4 Numbers don't lie

Where do these clowns come up with these names, some ghetto slang dictionary? For once I'm in agreement with Doris Wright. Moneybagg Yo? SMH. I'm willing to bet my 14 year old is worth more than this guy.
