Former Chopper City Boyz Member VL Mike Shot to Death

VL Mike, a New Orleans based MC and former member of B.G.’s Chopper City Boyz, was shot and killed in his hometown on Sunday afternoon (April 20). According to the New Orleans Times Picayune, the rapper, whose full name was Michael Allen, was exiting his vehicle on the 4700 block of Miles Drive at around 1:00 p.m. when a gunman approached him and started shooting. Mike was taken to University Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. The shooter is believed to have escaped on foot and no arrests have been made. B.G. introduced the Chopper City Boyz last year with the release of their debut LP, We Got This. After a disagreement with B.G., Mike left the group to pursue his solo career. The rapper’s murder was the seventh recorded in New Orleans over a four day period.

    That’s fucked up. He had got a deal with Sony/Epic to release his debut album “There’s Only 1 Me” Too bad it will never come out now. His first single off the album, was pretty tight. It featured Mannie Fresh, it was called Money In Here!

      The way some of these niggas be acting on this site man, they wouldn’t last 2 hours in New Orleans. They got bitch made femenine ways. Then on top of that, they always got some bullshit hatin non-sense to say. The lil 11 and 12 year olds are packing Ak-47′s and M-16′s in the N.O., the youngsters would knock them off in a heartbeat, they don’t call it Chopper City for nothing.. Everybody and they mama got Assault Rifles. But all the bullshit aside. This isn’t the time and place to discuss that. A man just died.

      R.I.P. VL Mike

Nuawlins bout big paper, beleedat!i I know that vl mike rapped bout things he seen and did!Knowin nuawlins, and them concrete jungle streets, mike wasn`t fakin at nothin.ya hurd may nigga. im a real ass street nigga, consider me that boy who made things happen outchair. yea, datboy! from paris road all the way to power drive, nigga been bout big checks!22hundred a week nigga, whats happenen?!!Cashed some down on royal off canal, ya hurd may!Big Bolo at unique groceries KNow bout a tru ass nigga.God knows,cause He`s the 1 who guided me past all the devils schemes in da n.o!Snuck out dat city after i grabbed bout 70 stacks helpin rebuild.God bless anyone who can prosper down in the n.o! it`s a real war zone, right here n america!Sadly, alot of um aint got a clue.God,thru Christ, is all bout life, and an abundant life(!), it`s the devil who comes to steal,kill,and destroy.All my brothers n the n.o,you honestly do know what time it is! a nu awlins nigga, offtop,done peeped game already,baby. A nuawliins nigga sees past the sweet; cause aint nothin sweet bout nuawlins,except theyr`e lemonade.when vl mike said in 1 of his songs, *you can even bring a pastor,i`ll tell him i done it*, to me, thats when he took his fall;maybe im wrong,n i truly dont know the specifics surrounding his life; i just admired his heroic flow and style! If your`e bout yo paper, and truly possess Godly wisdom and courage, and you happen2get a chance2hit the n.o,here`s a little advice*Uplift JESUS, cause truly,thats the only power that truly has an effect in new orleans. The lack of real life urban warfare against murder,is the result of a white world that truly wants a better dinner than lunch;they could care less if us blacks even eat!And 4 the white man who tells me im wrong?Put cha money where your mouth is,ol man!Better yet;hit any back street off claiborne,rampart,gentilly,chef,uptown,downtown,actually,dont go by them spots,cause i can tell already, you aint built da last!4 my n.o niggas, God aint playin either!He`s comin back,mark my word;KATRINA was just a warning!Keep on hustlin, n wind up n hell forever.Most brothas n the game,truly think it`s agame.God aint playin with you bro! dog, you already know what it is,but you keep movin dat stuff nigga! yea, ya gettin some cheese; but the big ratt is comin baby! He knows ya doin somethin dirty, ya hurd may?Any ,any murderer will spend eternity n hell, that simple.Its a race problem.A race to get it before the next man has a chance2 figure it all out. I say, love your neighbor as your self. Actually, those are JESUS words. The whites do it thru an unseen hate;and deep within them, they disrespect the creator,God. Theres is comin, and man;it`s gonna be an aweful sight. They`ve lied to us4 years! God aint playin whith you white man.You can have your nice,upscale lifestyle, but i`d love to watch 1 of um run outta gas by the nolia round 11:30 at night, then start talkin all that conservative crap!what a sad sight,as all these starvin folks walk up on your nice new honda.better have a billion dollar mouthpeice,and allotta street smarts, or else, its gonna b a sad sight! dont hate white man; you created this monster!All whites, renounce your evil hearts, and be loving 2 the black race. We dont hate you whites, we dislike your subtle ways, while you play us like the fool. God knows, im done rappin, you crooked brood of demons!r.i.p vl mike
