50 Cent Helps Finance Funeral For Queens Teenager Killed By Apparent Stray Bullet


50 Cent may be colder than a beer out of the back of the refrigerator when it comes to dealing with other rappers, but the Queens MC still has a heart. The rap mogul recently helped fund a funeral for 14-year-old D’aja Robinson, a Queens teenager who was recently killed by an apparent stray bullet.

According to reports, Robinson was on her way home from a birthday party when a gunmen fired nine shots into the side of a city bus. The teen was struck and later died from her injuries at a nearby hospital. When Curtis heard about the tragedy he stepped forward and bankrolled a white horse and carriage to carry the girl’s casket during the funeral procession. Fif commented on his kindness on his FaceBook page noting, “People always try and paint negative images about me I’m the most genuine down to earth person and I didn’t forget where I came from I came through for baby girl by providing a horse and carriage for her. She was pretty, innocent and didn’t deserve to die like that R.I.P D’Asia Robinson.”

Over 2,000 people came out to mourn and show support for the fallen teen’s family.
