Gun violence has sadly become a norm on the streets of Chicago and it seems like every day we are hearing about more shootings in America’s fourth largest city.
On Monday, March 11, 6-month old Jonylah Watkins was shot, while her father was changing her diaper. Her father, Jonathan Watkins amazingly survived. But sadly Jonylah’s life was cut short after extensive surgery.
Chicago’s very own Lupe Fiasco has decided to step up and touch on the story in song. The Food & Liquor rapper released a tribute track entitled, “Jonylah Forever” to the 6-month old. Listen to the heartfelt song below.
