Caribbean Fever - Your ONLY destination to all things Caribbean and more
Up and coming rapper BTY YoungN, born, Desmone Jerome, lost his life to senseless gun violence on Saturday, April 29, in New Orleans.
The Times-Picayune reports that the 27-year old Cash Money Recordsartist was killed at a Shell gas station in Hollygrove, a neighborhood in the city.
His cousin, Glenn Bell, told the newspaper that although YoungN is gone, he will not be forgotten.
"He was a very uplifting individual," Bell said. "A very positive individual. Very impactful. Rap is his career, not was. He's going to live on."
Our deepest condolences go out to YoungN's family and friends.
