Young City…Aka, Chopper
This fella right here hasn’t had too much luck since Da Band ended. While Diddy kept the New Orleans rapper on board with Bad Boy South, and he even dropped a record, he says he left because money was getting funny from the big man, and he needed it to come through for his family after Hurricane Katrina. After that, he was temporarily courted by Birdman and Cash Money, but after a falling out with Weezy, all talks were put to an end. He started his own record company, MOE (Money Over Everything), but caught a lot of legal charges in the process, including trouble for a robbery he was part of as a teen, and for threatening a man with a gun in 2008 (smart move…). After copping probation, Chopper kept releasing a slew of mixtapes and performing, making a good amount of money according to him. As he said to MTV in 2011, “People want to know how I got a Lamborghini, how I got a Maserati and I’m not in the public eye. That’s because I don’t give up.” And it’s all those lavish things that sadly got the rapper shot in an apparent robbery attempt in Chicago. Via his Twitter he said:
