    When you are a rapper (especially black) it's hard to leave your old lifestyle behind plus on top of that, people(especially black) become jealous of you( Im black it's happened to me personally)

    Look at XXXTENTACION, Nipsey Hussle or Pop Smoke. They were on the rise, already known/already big and yet they had people jealous of them SMH it's a shame really. Gone too soon💯

    It’s usually based on the lifestyle they live. Unlike many white, Chicano, or Asian rappers, black rappers still participate in things they did before their music blew up. The majority of non-black rappers usually focus on the music and go home at the end of the day. The two biggest reasons rappers die is from drugs and from gun violence. Buuuut its not uncommon  to see white rappers who overdosed, Asian rappers who died in accidents, Chicanos who die in shootings or stabbings.

    A lot of White and Asain Rappers are as well. Most Rappers live the hood lifestyle.
