Pastor's New Book On Lil' Wayne States Rap Superstar At Risk of Early Death
Submitted by: Philly Open Air Church
(OPENPRESS) September 19, 2011 -- Pastor Jomo K. Johnson's book, "Deadest Rapper Alive: The Rise of Lil' Wayne and the Fall of Urban Youth" is nationally distributed by Lulu Publishing, Amazon Books, and select local bookstores.
The book also makes the claim that the Rap Superstar is at risk of being the next tragic figure in the line of deceased Hip Hop artists. Johnson proposes Wayne's constant drug abuse and affiliation with the Piru Blood gang put him in great danger of being another music casualty. Johnson writes, "for almost a third of his entire life has used drugs in some form of the other. The most dangerous of these drugs are Promethazine. As mentioned earlier at least three rappers have died in the last 10 years by overdosing on this narcotic. While Wayne is forbidden to use this narcotic during his probation, it is difficult to say that he will completely cease once he has the freedom to use again. The recent and tragic death of Amy Winehouse should be a constant reminder of seriousness of musicians with drug abuse problems." Johnson also quotes threats from rival gang members to Wayne showing a eerily similar connection to the possible gang related death of Tupac Shakur.
