King Louie is downplaying the culture of violence afflicting his hometown of Chicago.
The “Jeep Music” rapper sat down with Moguldom Films to call the media’s reporting of the city dubbed “ChIraq” an embellishment of the actual city.
“We gotta think about wars. Like what people actually go with guns to kill people, so that’s just something that people say about Chicago,” King Louie explained. “Iraq, people be like you go over there. Things blowing up. Like that’s natural.
“It ain’t natural see something just blow up in the middle of the street, everybody just have a nice day, something just blow up, that’s not natural in Chicago,” he continued. “Like you don’t get used to that.”
Gun violence has long plagued the city of Chicago. Many residents have renamed the Windy City “Chiraq” for its high rate of violence. Chicago, according to statistics, has a higher homicide rate than Kabul, Afghanistan.
In 2012 alone, the city recorded 506 murders.
Despite statistics, King Louie isn’t willing to co-sign the negative image the media projects.
“It’s just what the media want people to think,” he said. “That’s probably what they get money off of to think Chicago just a monstrous city. Everywhere bad.”
