Daystar discusses #RichTheKid recovery following a brutal assault. (AllHipHop News) June 2018 has been a mix of highs and lows for Hip Hop culture. On the music side, listeners got new projects from #KanyeWest, #KidCudi #Nas, #JayRock, #Jay-Z #Beyoncé and others. Unfortunately, the month has also been marred by multiple violent acts against artists.
Florida’s #XXXTentacion and Pennsylvania’s #JimmyWopo were both killed on June 18. Just days before those murders, Rich The Kid was hospitalizedas a result of a home invasion at his girlfriend #ToriBrixx #L.A. apartment. #Canadian rapper/singer Tory Lanez recently chatted with Beats 1 Radio’s #ZaneLowe about Rich recovering from being robbed and assaulted at gunpoint. “I think he’s actually good. I think he’s back on the road. I mean, sh*t happens. At the end of the day, you can’t really plan for life’s ups and downs. It’s a rollercoaster. It’s different strokes for different folks,” said Tory. “Sh-t just happens on the daily. You got to just do your best to stay protected.” He added, “As a #rapper, I feel like there’s a war on rappers right now. You got to do your best to just stay protected, but I know at the end of the day, f-ck the downs - this is about the ups. We’re at a place where this record and brand new music from both of us is going to uplift his fan base and #uplift my fan base.” Rich The Kid presented his debut studio #album The World Is Yours in March. That same month, Tory Lanez released the Memories Don't Die album. The two #hitmakers joined forces for the new single “Talk To Me” which premieres today (June 20). Lanez is also creating an album titled Love Me Now? featuring 2 Chainz, #ChrisBrown, #Gunna, #Bryson Tiller, #LilBaby, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, and PnB Rock. He also has a Spanish language project, #ElAgua, with contributions from #NickyJam, Ozuna, and Farruko.n
