If you've been following the hottest story in the history of this blog about the music videos "Kobe Diss" and "No Competition," which appear to make reference to the murder of Tyrone "Ty Crack" Washington and (it can be fairly stated) gloat and revel in the death of Tyrone Washington, then you know a certain bracelet is part of the controversy.
According to what I'm being told, a number of tribute bracelets were made with the street name "Ty Crack" and the birthday and date of death of Tyrone Washington. However, it appears at least one fell into the hands of somebody who was not a friend, but a declared enemy of Tyrone Washington.
Yes, one of these bracelets meant to memorialize the tragic death of Tyrone Washington is being worn by none other than...
..."Prince Kibbie" (Kibbie Shakeel Akbark Walker) and can be seen in the "No Competition" video at 2 minutes, 41 seconds.
So why is Prince Kibbie wearing the bracelet? Well, the social media conversation snapshotted at the top of this blog post appears to provide an explanation.
Prince Kibbie wears the bracelet because it's like his "championship" ring; in other words a trophy of a victory. Also, he wears it "all the time."
Hmmm. Good to know.
The exact date of the conversation is unknown but clearly took place after the release of the music videos so within the last month.
Some noteworthy and worrisome commentary about this song can be found on YouTube, as follows:
If anybody can pin ANYTHING on this guy in regard to the death of Tyrone Washington, that witness has not yet been produced. Meantime, Mental Mid raps like he's made of Teflon and immortal vampire blood runs through his veins! It is the perception of this blogger that Mental Mid is using controversy and (indeed!) element of danger regarding his music to promote himself as an artist and (who knows?) get some kind of big record deal.
GOOD LUCK! No telling who will show up first; a music producer with a contract, the cops with an arrest warrant or an offended and homicidal friend of Tyrone Washington.
I can hardly wait to hear the next song "Back Flip" and (hopefully) see the music video. Will this new song address the red hot controversy over "Kobe Diss" and "No Competition," last night's sudden cancellation of the Young Dro concert, or the "hyper local" fame Mental Mid has achieved right here on this blog? Does Mental Mid have anything to say to the police who are trying to solve the murder of Tyrone Washington?
Inquiring minds want to know. But I guess inquiring minds will have to wait until Wednesday.
