The author wonders aloud where the public outrage is over this video. Uh, hello, you’re living in Chicago, sweetie. This is standard fare.
When a 13-year-old boy shows up in a rap video cursing like a grown man, flashing money and posing with a gun, his parents and other adults involved are morally bankrupt.
Unfortunately, there has been no public outcry over a raunchy video titled “Lil Mouse Get Smoked” that debuted on YouTube on July 4, and has since Blo wn up the Internet. Nearly 300,000 people have viewed it, making the 13-year-old the latest rap sensation to come out of Chicago.
Known as “Lil Mouse,” the baby-faced rapper repeatedly drops “F” and “N” bombs in a music video that glorifies sex, drugs and violence. At one point, an adult male gets behind the teen and makes it look like the teen is holding the gun. On popular music video sites, the teen, who allegedly lives in Roseland, is being promoted as the “13-year-old rapper from the Wild, Wild Hundreds.”
The gangster-style music video is even more profane when you consider that Chicago is desperately trying to reduce gang- and drug-related violence that helped push the homicide rate up nearly 40 percent and claimed the lives of so many of the city’s children.
Here’s just a sample of what “Lil Mouse” has to say:
“I’m rollin’, all my n—-s rollin’
.30 clip and them hollow tips have his a– sitting in Roseland
Floating off a pill, p**** bad’ll kill
My n—- in the field; you might get killed….
Melly got the .30 on his hip, he gone need some help
I’m a gangster, n—-, and I could do this s— my f—— self”
