On Dec. 22nd 13-year old Ki’ Anthony Tyus was killed in a car crash in Louisville, Ky.
According to the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD), Anthony was in a black Lexus SUV that was reported stolen before it struck a utility pole. His family said they have no clue why he was in the vehicle.
This news came as a shock to Entrupuner and Hip -Hop Mogul Master P, who formed a relationship with the young man two years ago when Anthony was struck by a stray bullet on the basketball court. Master P also agreed to pay for the young man’s funeral.
In an Instagram post, Master P said that Anthony’s death should serve as at least two reminders: That death doesn’t practice discrimination and even the smallest of decisions can have huge consequences.
“I know I’m not God and I can’t save the world,” he wrote on Instagram. “I realized a lot of these adults are not going to listen. The real reason I leave my mansion to keep coming back to the hood is to educate and try to save the next generation. Maybe a lot of us didn’t get what we wanted for Christmas, but we should be thankful we are alive.”
“My 13-year-old Lil’ soldier didn’t make it,” added P. “He got shot two years ago and got killed 2 days ago. We need to stop this Black on Black crime. R.I.P Ki’ Anthony Tyus. Just know that every decision comes with consequences and no one is too young to die. My prayers go out to his family. Could’ve been the next Lebron James.”
WDRB reports there were five others in the car during the chase, and Anthony was the only person killed. At this time, the LMPD has launched an investigation to determine if the police chase violated their pursuit policy.
