The Responsibility is a Lifestyle: It’s Time to Bury Da Beef is a response to the growing trend of gun and gang violence that plagues communities in the State of New York and areas across America; Grammy Award winner T.I. through his K.I.N.G Foundation continues to use his voice to encourage young people to accept responsibility as a lifestyle.
According to the official press release, a survey conducted by the Center for Disease Control revealed that an average of 16 youth per day are killed from senseless violence. Specifically, young people ages 10 – 24.
In the past two weeks alone heinous crimes have struck our communities, including a 13-year old boy who was shot in the head as hundreds of teens gathered on a Harlem corner; a 17 and 19-year old male murdered in a double homicide in Queens, NY; and last Friday night, where a 15-year-old teen was chased, beaten, shot and burned in Chicago, IL.
The Responsibility Is A Lifestyle: It’s Time to Bury Da Beef is being organized as a call to action to engage elected officials, community organizers, artists, and every American citizen to accept responsibility to build safer communities.
