Orthodox Kids Involved in East Coast-West Coast Rap Rivalry

Not to trivialize a guy who was shot and killed today, but there is a great Jewish twist to the death of up and coming rapper Dolla today in Los Angeles.

Dolla, born Roderick Anthony Burton II, was in the Beverly Center Mall in L.A., when he was shot and killed. Because of security concerns, Maimonides Academy, an elementary school a block away, was put on lock down for the afternoon.

I’m not one into reading into news story, but I have a feeling that some kid was going around the hallways this week talking about how much he loved Biggie and how Tupac was a “wangsta.” If you’re gonna run your mouth, you best watch your back.

R.I.P. Dolla.
