Big Folk Shot Yesterday In North Memphis & Now Fighting For His Life

Prayers are up for rapper Big Folk following reports that he was shot yesterday in North Memphis.

According to reports reaching us at Dreddsworld, Big Folk is now fighting for his life in the hospital.

For now, there are no much information on what went down. Out prayers are with him. Memphis has long struggled with chronic poverty and crime and is often ranked among the nation’s most violent cities.

Its troubles have intensified in recent years. In 2021, the city had a record number of killings, with 346. In 2022, the violent crime rate compared with last year’s has only marginally improved, according to police statistics.

The Memphis Shelby County Crime Commission and the University of Memphis Public Safety Institute have released a report showing statistics on the city’s crime rates for the first half of 2022.

The eight-page report reads that the percentage of violent crimes being committed with a gun nearly doubled in the last decade.

This increase corresponds with an increase in property crime, where guns are being stolen out of cars. The head of the Memphis Shelby Crime Commission says it’s all connected.
