“You could tell that this was a young man who was going somewhere,” she emphasized.

A funeral was held for the “Selfish” musician at Khadijah Alderman Funeral Home in North Philadelphia on Wednesday (Sept 21.).

“He used his platform in that song to encourage his peers, who are the young people here in the City of Philadelphia, to put down their guns,” Johnson continued.

“If you listen to that song, he talks about losing friends and family here in Philadelphia and he uses his platform to encourage young people to stop the violence.”

The 30-year-old was gunned down in Los Angeles at a local Roscoe’s Chicken and Waffles in Inglewood, California.
