And you sir are acting like an overly sensitive white trash soccer mom.
This is nothing new, kids facing the harsh realities of growing up where we come from have been put on television before. It's been in music before...the kids 13 going on 14, Nas was only 16 when he wrote Illmatic...2 and a half years younger, but did you crucify him?
This kid is representing one of the worst parts of Chicago, and for murder/homicide one of the worst parts of America....This is the kind of life hes seeing everyday. I personally am not from Chicago, but I grew up in Queens, lived some out in the projects in Camden New Jersey as well...this is whats going on. In those enviroments a 9 year old can blow your head off or sell you a baggie faster than a 25 year old. Little kids brandishing pistols, getting to the money, and being involved in the more fu*ked up side of the hood aint nothing new, sh*t its even happening all over the world...remember the movie about it happening down in brazil?:

What you have to learn is that Lil Mouse doing music actually may be a blessing in disguise. If doing music, and making a little cash off of it(like he seems to be doing) will keep him off the same streets/corners that alot of his peers will more than likely get lost on?????? Then fu*k it, I hope he drops a triple disc album, sales a million records, and makes it out the hood. If Mouse DIDNT take up rapping and was just another little kid out there trying to prove himself amongst the older crowd by pulling jobs(like young stickup kids do in the hood ya know) he could end up just another black kid lost.
Now that wont happen though. So n*gga keep on doin you, he just gone keep on doin him
Soft a.ss nerd f*ggot, go play Guild Wars 2
my only thing is NAS, one was rapping real talented deep sh*t, it was hood, but there was lesson to be learned not just mindless ignorance
secondly by mainstreaming a cat like lil mouse, it sends the message to kids who normally wouldnt go down that path, that thats how they supposed to get down
i understand its reality, but its difference, between glorifying it and portraying it
