Boogie B’s mother addressed the city of New Orleans: “My son was not just a victim of a stray bullet. He was the victim of decades of neglect that left the youth of New Orleans with no hope for the future and real fear of the consequences.
“It’s time for the leaders in our city and around the world to do their job. It is important who is the president, who is the governor, and who is the mayor. Leaders create opportunities, including the opportunity to live in peace without fear of accidental violence.”
Tributes to the star have poured out on social media, and many say they will miss his interesting content and storytelling style.
