Charlamagne Tha God: Young Dolph's Murder Is A Societal Problem

Charlamagne Tha God shared his thoughts on the Young Dolph murder and says it's a "societal problem."

"What you saw yesterday was a societal problem," said Charlamagne on Thursday. 

"This is what happens when people don't have better things to do, this is what happens when proper investments haven't been made in certain communities. We can go on and on about how the root causes of crime are inequality, the lack of support for families in neighborhoods, inaccessibility to services... we act like violent crime is a complex issue," he continued.

Dolph was gunned down this week after buying cookies in his hometown.

"It's not. Lack of education, rupture of family structure, generational poverty... Boom, nine times out of ten, you're gonna get someone who has zero self-worth when they come from those conditions and zero love for themselves. And if I lack self-worth and love for myself, what the hell I care about you for? You out here shinin', drivin' your fancy cars, jewelry on, man, some people will kill you, not just because they're jealous or envious but they will kill you because of the way other people love you. They don't wanna hear about what you doin' in the community."
