A popular New Orleans rapper named Kyyngg is going viral - for giving all his kids pistols, including his 2 year old. The rapper claims that he gave the children guns so that they can "protect themselves."

Here is the video:

Kyyngg made a name for himself in the southern rap scene with mixtapes like Praise We, Kyyngg Slime and Slime Season 3. Some of his best-known tracks include "Bloodaz" and "Rich & Wild."

But the new video - of Kyyngg and his children - is making him even more famous.

Here are some of the comments of outrage online:

I don’t care accidents happen. You can’t be too sure. These are kids they don’t know what they’re doing

Yes,he can got to jail for this.🙄 And you’re not helping him by tell everyone that “There is only one real gun in the video” stupid.🤦🏻‍♀️

Multiple people in his comments claim that they are calling child welfare on the rapper, who lives in New Orleans.

Recently he tweeted:

Kyyngg garnered a great following in his city and surrounding areas. Having a lot in common with Young Thug certainly does not hurt. He sounds like him, he looks like him, he dresses like him and now he has dropped a project called “Slime Season 3” just like Young Thug.

Now, many Thug fans are facing a dilemma: do we dismiss Kyyngg as a Young Thug rip-off? Or is this just an extension of Thug’s DGAF attitude? Is Kyyngg taking it too far? Or is he just the obvious next step in the accelerated cycle of influence?
