Lil Phat Killed
Last night, southern rapper Melvin Burrell III who’s better known as Lil Phat, was shot and killed outside the Northside Hospital Women’s Center in Atlanta, GA.
Word is that around 6:40 pm, while sitting in his car in the parking garage, he was approached by a shooter who had murder on his mind.
Lil Phat was shot a total of 20 times. He was taken to the nearby North-side Hospital where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
It’s still unknown why Lil Phat was in the parking garage or what was the motive behind this deadly shooting but witnesses said they saw a suspect running away from the area but that’s it for now.
For those that don’t know, Lil Phat was featured on a number of songs with Webbie and one of the up and coming artist under Lil Boosie’s Trill Ent.
My personal opinion is he is another victim of hip hop; a business filled with hate and murderous lyrics directed at what seems to be the listener.
When I listen to rap, they’re always telling me what I can’t do that they can and even calling me out of my name sometimes; but I guess that’s hip hop.
None the less, he was a human being and deserved his life like anyone else.
I guess it’s true what they (or the bible) says; you live by the sword, you die by the sword.
