R.I.P. Philant Johnson


R.I.P.
Philant Johnson

Its been over 48 hours now, since I laughed it up and told my good friend how I was paying for the next round of benz’s. Wow….a simple trip to an afterparty and now my homie is gone.

Philant Johnson was a beautiful person. He was the last person to cause confrontation and the last person to ask for it. He was the father to a daughter and a son to a mother and father.

He was Tip’s best friend and his right hand man. He went everywhere Tip went. He was a great friend of mine, and since the first day I met him, I swear, I have never had anything bad to say about him.

Through T.I., Philant got to live a dream life and he deserved everymoment of it. From hanging with Jay-Z, to travelling the world, to just living “the good life” But more importantly, he provided for his daughter and family off of something extremely positive and something people dream of making a carear from. I will miss you forever Philant.

The night of the incindent when the scuffle broke out, I dropped my blackberry. I got left behind mistakenly because I was looking around on the floor for it. I would have been in that van that got shot up. God works in mysterious ways.

For the record – NO ONE IN EITHER OUR CAMP OR JOC’S CAMP THREW ANY MONEY AT ANYONE. That is a lie.

We are real people. Philant was a real person. You people read this and comment as though we are figments on tv with out feelings and emotion. Byron Crawford, u a heartless moron. I thought about quitting this xxl blog shit because I do not want to share the same space with you. You must have never lost anyone, and u must not care for anyone around you including a mother and father that brought u into this world or u would never make some of the statements u make.

I still can’t fathom that my homie died over nothing. And in no way did T.I., or anyone in our camp warrant any of this. It was plain and simple, the hood mentality of a selected few in cincinatti that night. Egos are a muthafucka!!!

Philant, you will be missed.

I hope you are living wonderful in the sky.

    R.I.P. Philant Johnson, we all know that Cincinnati is fake. Thats why they had to take a blackmans life. Killsing someone is not gangsta.

    fucked up shit man, I don’t even know what to say cuz I don’t know either you or Philant… but sorry for the loss

    the worst part of any death to me is when you find out that man had a family, wife, kids, friends and its hard to imagine the pain they feel when they find out the person they love lost his life, over nothing..

  • mighty whitey

    I’m sorry to hear about your loss
    God seems to take all the good people early. he is in a better place now.

  • Cool Dude

    So did Philant have a big dick? did Drama suck on that particularly big dick? I think so

  • r.i.p philant

    i met philant when i interviewed T.I a while back and he was cool, funny and a pleasure to be around. i may not have known him, but from just meeting him, i can tell he was a kind and loving person. R.I.P. the only comfort is knowing that your in a better place now.

    Wusup man, first off R I P to your man Johnson… My friend is one of those backpack dudes who always complaining about the negative effects of rap. And I’m always defending it, telling him how its just entertainment, no different than a movie. But lately it’s been hard to make that argument. I mean lets just look at the events in the past few weeks; Obie got shot, Busta’s man was killed, Proof was killed, Gravy got shot, Big Hawk was killed, unfortunately your partner was killed and so on. That’s not even mentioning the other incidents that occurred concerts and clubs. Like I said I like rap, and I can appreciate it as the entertainment that it is. And I think you hit it right on the head when you said that people look at rappers as “figments on TV”. But If you honestly think about it I think you’ll agree this is mostly the rappers fault. Rappers are bluring the line between reality and entertainment s. Everybody wants to “keep it real” and claim that they’ve done all the things that they rap about, essentially turning themselves into a “tv” character. One who “moves killos of coke by the hour, who gets shot but doesnt get fazed, who does time in the pen easily, and who doesn’t speak to police no matter what.” Rappers are playing these roles they not letting the consumer know that they’re just playing the role. I’m no Fat Joe fan but i give him props that on his interviews he points out that his rhymes are just to entertain and not to be taken literally. Every body else swear that their real. Just check out any hip hop DVDs, guys flashing guns, giving out threats and so on. I don’ think there’s anything wrong with the content, just the way that its presented. If its presented as reality, like say a young jeezy does, gullible cats out there are actually going to believe that shit like shootouts and moving kilos is some normal shit that people do, but if its presented as a story, alah Ghostface, cats can enjoy but not be influence by it. Now I’m not saying that any of this had anything specifically to do with the death of your guy. I’m just pointing out that this whole hip hop image thing is getting out of control, paying out like some ghetto movie. Rappers, and fans are losing touch of reality and till that’s address I won’t be surprised if by the time i check this site tomorrow therell be another headline about some rapper or entourage getting shot. Peace man, keep up them Gangsta Grillz

    Dram,

    I got the news early that morning and I was hoping it was all just another BS rumor…unfortunely it wasn’t.

    I shot a message to your blackberry to check to see if y’all were alright…hoping to get that “Huh, what did you hear…nah, we good…nothing happened” response but it never came then I got worried that you were in that van but now I see why…it’s amazing how God works.

    My deepest condolences you and the Grand Hustle fam. Man, y’all please be safe out there. Hit me up when y’all touch down in STL. (I switched from the sidekick to a blackberry last week so use the tmo dot address instead of tmail.com)

    RIP Philant.

    To DJ DRAMA,T.I., and the whole Grand Hustle family you are in my prayers. And especially the Johnson family. We all know that he’s living in the sky. Keep your head up Tip we all know that you have had so many losses. But just remeber what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger. And the lord will never give you anymore than what you can handle.

    Love #1 T.I. fan

    The Lord always takes his children when the journey on this earth is complete. However, the end of that journey is usually not predictable or expected..We have to continue to uphold those filled with grief, and hold tight to your spiritual faith. We have to go forward or we will not allow his spirit to rest with the Lord.

    R.I.P. Philant and thank you for the diligent service you provided Tip. You will be truly missed and I am very happy that I was able to meet you. May God continue to bless everyone involved and may you be comforted by his love.

  • JaeSun

    I live in Atlanta, and the day I heard about the shooting I was shocked but glad to hear the initial reports that no one lost their lives….when I got off work though later that evening and heard Philant was killed it hurt me. Now this is coming from a niggah that does not know either Tip or Philant nor anyone at Grand Hustle. But it hurt to hear that a black male, another black male was killed senselessly. I listened to Killa Mike on V-103 radio station, (big up to V-103 for not playing music and talking about this senseless violence), but Killa Mike broke the shyt all the way down the way it needed to be broke. These “fake gangstas” are a bunch of chumps, sukas, fakes, and phoneys. How in the hell can you warrant taking another mans life. You are heartless and you should be fed to the hogs! You’ve taken a father, a son, a homie and aint no coming back from death. Try to fathom getting a call that your son, uncle, cousin, brother was just killed and is not returning home although he was out tryna make money to provide a better life, but someone decided to shut his life off. Like a phukkin light switch. I’m soooo fukin tired of these fake cats that fukk up the game. I have to explain to my 10 y/o son who loves rap music and I myself only 30 love rap music but I have to explain to him that jealousy breeds envy and its cats out there who are willing to take another persons life because of that shyt. It’s sick. Tip, keep ya head up baby boi, I don’t know you but you are a tru inspiration to me and alot of other cats……..to the Johnson family, ATL has you in our prayers, to my HIP HOP family worldwide, let’s take note of these losses and let’s do something about it. That’s 3 this yr ya’ll. To the media stop reporting disinformation phukking up the story. Be tru to your art of journalism and report hard facts and be mindful of families and those involved. This is ya boi JaeSun, I’m out.
    Love

  • another generation

    This is a terrible loss. However I wish your generation could see more out of life than what is now considered a “wonderful life”. I have too friends who both have grandparents in their 100′s. But I can’t count the number of mothers who have buried their sons before 30.

    My own daughter lost her father shortly before he turned 30 to sensless unsolved violence. Even as she approaches womanhood, there is nothing I can do to comfort or make up for her loss. I can’t even tell her that she looks just like him, without the situation making her uncomfortable.

    We need to figure out why it is that a brother can look at another brother and take his life.

    If your generation wants to represent your clik – be the generation to help a daughter keep her daddy.

  • jalaynee phillips

    sorry yo hear about the lost but iam from cincinnati and iam from the dark side and even some of are people whom have shot and killed people had a hard time thinking about how this could’ve went down i was at the after party i saw johnson and he was having a good time who would have known that was his last night keep ya head up… the ritzs is very sorry…

    RIP to Philant. May he rest in peace. Keep your head up.

    When i first heard of Philant passing i thought “How could someone kill such a fun loving sweet person?” I was around Philant several times and he was always very nice and respectful..it’s a shame his life had to be cut short over some foolishness like that, dj drama my prayers are with u and the rest of the grandhustle family, Philant will never be forgotten.

  • redhead

    Cincinnati Tupac,
    that was the lamest shit I ever read in my entire life. you are the reason white folks are scared of us, you are the reason young girls grow up without their daddys, you are the THUG nigga who don’t give a fuck and encourage other young men to behave the same. let me let you in on a little secret, see, it’s niggas like you that are the reason they are gonna ban hip hop shows across the country. you are the reason that brothers aren’t gonna be makin’ anymore of this rap dough. you are the destruction of our community, our families, our culture. you are the product of the Willie Lynch mentality and you are too dumb to even know that you are endangering our entire generation. i feel sorry for your mother. she made a huge mistake somewhere along the line and i hate to imply that it could have possible been when she brought you into this world. LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ENTERTAINMENT AND REALITY, PLEASE!

    Hallo / hello

    i`m from german, nuernberg..

    Ich glaube der gößte T.I. Fan in Europa so sein, ich finde es leid, dass einer seiner besten Freunde oder sogar sein bester Feund ermodet wurde..

    Johnson war einer von Grand Hustle, er hatte wirklich Herz und ahnung der materie.

    Er war noch stark befreundet mit T.I. und deren Mütter waren auch sehr eng befreundet.

    Hiermit spreche ich meinen Beileid an die Familie und auch dass T.I. weiter macht, Philant hätte es bestimmt nicht gewollt, dass Clifford das “rappen” aufhört, jetzt wo er so weit ist doch erst recht.

    Ich hoffe, T.I. mal treffen zu können hier in Deutschland / Europa, wenn nicht werde ich mal für eine woche in die USA fliegen für eins – zwei Konzerte.

    Wie gesagt, hiermit spreche ich mein vollsten Beileid an die Familie von Philant, und T.I. halt den Kopf oben, mach weiter so.

    I grew up in Cincinnati(Lincoln Heights) and been in Georgia for the last 16 years. Just when I was becoming to fall back in love with Cincinnati this shit has happen. no matter what reason was giving it shouldnt have resulted in the gunfire. I think that the other click come to that party already full of hate and needed that spark to start some shit. T.I. and them talk about the Westside Atl and his life as a trapboy. Some of the trapboys in Cincinnati see that their hardwork aint going no where but being hoodrich.Now who has a platinum album in Cincinnati? The Isley Brothers are from Lincoln Heights. Andre Crouch also. Nikki Giovanni grew up there too. We knew we were low income but at least we have class. Hell he could have did a performance at the Peppermint Lounge and got a better reception.I was considering coming back to Cincinnati to live but
    Ill go back to Decatur.I know that this is going to lead to more bloodshed because of this.This only give White America another way to criticize hip hop. Who is going to do any concerts in Cincinnati anymore?

    Cincinnati Tupac has to be mad young.Brother that stuff that you are typing is bullshit. Dont put the whole city Cincinnati behind that shit you talking. How are you going to hide behine Pac’s name if you that real let peeps know part of your goverment name. Then you talking about money. T.I. is giving back to his hood fixing up houses that others pass over. Why are you all on his dick like that? What gangsta is up on a messageboard popping off at the mouth like a bitch anyway. It is time for the young Black America to wake up because King had the dream and some of us is still deep sleeping and not putting together a plan to make become successful. Now you are on here full of hate because a dopeboy from the hood went legit. Hell he have old money, he is trying to get new money now. Grand Hustle nothing but respect to your clique. Young Black Men and Women trying to make a name for theirselves. Heck just like Jay Z said (when he did a show at a club that Beanie got into a fight with someone on a MTV special)basically tht a person on his celebrity status at the time wouldnt have even did a club like that. But he liek to be around his people. T.I. star is rising so fast that he could have looked over Cincinnati. But when people show love to people in the hood even if it isnt the hood they are from,this is the gratitude they get. But if they acted like they were better then it still be said that he aint real. A real gangsta I know that is female and is doing a bid for not telling on her friends is… LIL KIM.

  • Candice

    First off, my thoughts and prayers go out to Philant’s immediate family and friends and the whole Grand Hustle family. His death was senseless and I hope they catch who ever committed this crime and they should get no less than the crime they committed. I want you all to know that your true fans are behind you 100% and we will support you all through every step of your mourning period and beyond then.

    To the Cincinnati Tupac character that left that post, you are just a stupid, sick minded, weak coward just like the people who committed this crime and others like it. People like you are the ones who give our race and our culture a bad rep. Now you burn in HELL!

  • http://yahoo.com Hoops

    I wan to say to T.I. man keep doing your thing because everything happens for a reason. I know how gladly Philant will be missed and my heart goes out to his family and especially his daughter and to this lame ass nigga Cincinnati Tupac are just writting shit to get a response just get a life. The ‘A’ will always be on the map.What you know bout that/ Get ya game up!

  • Michelle

    Tip, I have had the pleasure of spending time with you and Phil. I had known Phil for approx. a year now and everytime he came to Cali he made sure to give me the opportunity to go out with them. He was the nicest man, very generous and genuinely caring. I remember i was having money problems and I was stressin and he said to me ” Michelle, money doesn’t make you happy, I have plenty of it and I am still stressed. ” he continued with ” Wusa that shit out, it will be okay” I really appreciated that night and off to the studio we went. I last talked to him a couple of days before he passed. He was telling me that they were coming out to cali for tips concert at the HOB so he will see me then. Now I have to say that tip and the whole grand hustle entertainment are in my thoughts and prayers. RIP Phil

    I’m sorry for your loss, bro.

    And I understand your frustrations with being associated with XXL’s blogs. You elevate their game, on the real.

    But do you really need them? You could do your own blog on your own site and get a lot more respect than you’ll ever get here.

    Stay strong.

    I have to co-sign Fuck Bol’s comment, by also saying fukk XXL for providing a forum for Bol to spread his ignorance. Whut’z tha’ point? It is not entertaining on any level to discredit people who u, on any level, know nothing about. XXL i alwayz knew ya’ll were some fukk azz niggaz. Politics, politics, ya’ll boyz keep sellin’ ur soulz to the devil. Tha’ repurcussionz of perpetuating ignorance will ultimately be everyone who co-signs Bol and XXL’s downfall, and thatz on everything, one-hunned.

    513, you trippnin, man its faggots everywhwere, but you just sound like a stupid motherfucker, and most of the ones in the A, aint even from here, these motherfuckers fell out the sky or somethin, but all this goin back and forth killin each other shit is some straight up bullshit, and please believe that its some real niggas here just like everywhere else, sucka ass nigga

  • creasedup

    and you know what’s funny bout you so called gangsta niggas,like 513, the killin of another black man is nothin to you, but you ain’t got the heart or the nuts to fuck with a white man because you pussy just like those gays you seem to know so much about. you might be on the d.l nigga because you got kinda emotional on your thread. this nigga typed the longest message in history

  • Big D

    You all act like they aint no poor white boys either, you think I like pushin this fuckin glass to these nasty bitches? Around here the mexicans push more weight then us, I aint racist but I feel disgraced

  • Big D

    I love the nati but I get sick of havin to knock these crackhead bitches out, the money is good tho

  • cincinnati_513

    this comment is for “honestdawg”………How the fuck do you know that most of the gay ppl in atl came from out of town? what the fuck did you do , take a survey??…i can see your dumb ass now walking up to niggaz talking about ” excuse me sir i’m taking a survey , i want to know do you suck dicks and were orginally born in atlanta”? l.m.a.o.!………jokes aside : I know there are real niggaz in atl , but itz real niggaz here as well , thats what yall atl niggaz cant accept! t.i. nor yung joc strap is gonna tell the truth about what really happened that nite,bcuz to do so would show he got his hoe card pulled . There was never any money thrown (read the d.j. drama article) t.i. was talking shit on stage saying “cincinnati aint shit” and other comments like that. t.i. JUST LIKE YOU feels that just bcuz he from atl a nigga automatically gonna bow down,yea rite! .so what if come from a city that has more murders than ours! what the fuck that have to do with it? im not saying them niggaz was rite to kill philant , but t.i. started the whole incident by talking shit on stage , this is a fact! if some nati rappers came down to atl talkin shit on stage what would happen ? the same damn thing ! so quit trippin nigga!

  • cincinnati_513

    this comment is for “creased up”….1st off i never claimed to be gangster! I am not a gangster or a thug , but i always stand my ground against any nigga or clique and i get my respect in the streets , thats real talk……Who the fuck are you to say what im capable or not capable of you dont know me !(sound familar?)let it be said for the record anytime a black man murders another black man the white man wins , but this does not change the fact that if it wasnt for t.i. on stage saying “cincinnati aint shit” and “cincinnati is weak” and shit like that philant would still be alive !let it also be said for the record i am not d.l. or gay or whatever the flavor of the moment is in atlanta (ha!ha!)i been to atl like 4 or 5 times i can only speak on what i saw with my own eyes , so dont git ya panies wet about the fag comments honey buns !if you rip on my city ,im gonna rip on yours twice as hard!so why you upset about the fag comments , it’z all true anyway! if were to go to a landfill in atl you find half the landfill garbage , the other half would be empty k.y. jelly tubes ! (ooh low blow!) if anybody is emotional it,s you bcuz it upset you enough to make a comment about what i said . anyway i know you are a atl undercover fag . the reason you call yourself “creased up” is bcuz you like having 12 inch dicks stuck UP the “CREASE of your asshole”!………….

  • cincinnati_513

    this comment is for “big d” obviously you are a white boy from cincinnati so you already know Cincinnati is the most conservative racist city in the U.S. ….everybody thinks the 2001 riot was the 1st riot …WRONG! look up the history of cincinnati (on google) you will see that since the year 1850 cincinnati has has a total of no less than 7 RACE RIOTS (including the 2001)…..if you look up the definition of “hell on earth” you would see a picture of someone black from cincinnati bcuz in this city whites and blacks git along about as well as the jews and the nazi’s , need i say more?the way i see it if you live in cincinnati and you have white skin then you “white skin privilage” i suggest you use your “privilage” to your advantage and git off the block!

  • cincinnati_513

    one more thing: (4 da record)i am not a racist , but i gotta call it as i see it .

  • creasedup

    just like i said, 513, you sure do seem to talk about dick in the ass alot homie, if you were as real as you want us to believe, that kinda shit wouldn’t even come outta ya mouth. What kinda nigga keep talkin bout that shit. And yeah I’m from da A, and its alot of motherfuckers that relocated here after the olympics and this whole city done changed. But you a funny nigga. yall aint got to bow down to no nigga, but if u wrong u wrong, I dont give a fuck who you is, I wasn’t in cinci that nite so I dont know what happened, but kill all that homo talk cause exposin ya self

  • honestdawg

    I believe that nigga Cissinati 513 is a faggot for real. 2 much energy on that shit. This shit suppose to be about Philant and all you can talk about fags, damn nigga or bitch, or bitch nigga. Oh and i can tell you took typin too, nigga, with ya bitch ass. you probably typed that shit reall fast.

  • cincinnati_513

    this mssg is 4 creasedup/honestdawg……what the fuck iz it with you niggaz??? why is it okay for atl niggaz to make comments cut’n up on da nati , but then when a nati nigga cut up on yall atl niggaz then yall niggaz got a problem with it , i dont understand that! i dont give a fuck where you from , if you gonna sit up and cap on my city , them im gonna cap back on your city.this whole back and forth thing is nothing more to me than a internet cap session , just as if i was sit’n around drinkin beers my niggaz cappin on each other laughin and shit . so you gotta realize how both of you make yourself look like a marshmellow soft ass nigga when you sit here and git all EMOTIONAL just bcuz i made some gay comments about atl.you must be gay otherwise you wouldnt be sooooooooooo upset (would you like me to give you some tissue to wipe the tears from your eyes lol!) I dont have nothing against gay ppl or the city of atl othwise i would not have came there 5 times in less than 10 years. i just like bringing up the gay shit bcuz i know it gitz under yall niggaz skin , and both of you niggaz are a example of that, so let me thank you for giving the satisfation of letting me know that i got under your skin from 500 miles away!!! …..but on a serious note lemme ask you this . yung jock strap said on the (atl) radio that cincinnati has started a war they cant win. how the fuck is it that you take some drama jumped off between 2 cliques of niggaz and turn it in2 a war between 2 city’s? I dont git it? this type of shit happens every day . the question is: why do all you atl niggaz feel that just bcuz t.i. high-yellow-skin-as-bright-as-crisco-lookin-ass (see im cap’n again )got beef wit some niggaz up here that yall gotta git involved in it. why u wanna git involved in beef you aint got shit to do with? …..now if yall niggaz wanna sit up and keep diss’n me and the nati go ahead bcuz i’m done with it ,but just awnser that one question.

  • cincinnati_513

    this mssg is for the dildo boyz a.k.a. creasedup/honestdawg : how the fuck is it that everytime yall niggaz post a comment it,s always posted at the same time? yall niggaz must be buttmates ooops i mean roomates(yes im cappin again).seeing how is it that both of you are gay lemme just pass along to you . wal-mart has a 2 for 1 sale on k-y jelly , so yall niggaz better stock up!you should buy enoungh to last a whole year , so you should buy at least 50 tubes! ha ! ha! ha! (dont you just love my jokes)

    niggaz like cincinnati_513 and that other nigga don’t represent my city,but t.i did bring death 2 his boy, i don’t give a fuck about where you go niggaz is the same, you can’t go to a niggaz city talking shit the way t.i did, so in a way he got what was coming to him, and dj drama is lying, t.i did fastball a bankroll into 1 of them niggaz face, and this is after he was talking shit about the city, so y’all come to your own conclusion of the outcome, but out here niggaz feel like t.i started that shit, but ************* finished that shit, niggaz in da city know who i’m talking ’bout, and for bitch niggaz that’s from da nati but moved elsewhere, and now feel the need to talk shit on the city, y’all know damn well you wouldn’t say that shit to nobody out this mu’fucka, you probably hate the city because you were getting your shit split, bitch ass niggaz.
