Published November 3, 2017

If there’s one thing we know about CMG’s head honcho, Yo Gotti, it’s that he’ll always put on for his hometown of Memphis.

According to Fox 13 Memphis, Yo Gotti is helping the family of 10-year-old Jaheim McKinzie, who authorities said stabbed himself to death.  

According to the site, the 10-year-old fatally succumbed to wounds last Saturday (October 28) after repeatedly stabbing himself in the chest with a kitchen knife. It’s his mother, Robin McKinzie, who will be facing child abuse charges, however, after police said she admitted to whipping him with extension cords and choking him, Fox 13 Memphis reports. The alleged abuse took place just moments before the reported suicide, the site adds.

Gotti’s manager, the site concludes, revealed that he would be shelling out an undisclosed amount to help with funeral expenses for young Jaheim.

As an investigation is still underway, McKinzie’s bail is set at $100,000 while being held on aggravated child abuse and endangerment charges.
