Urban Grind TV caught up with King Samson for his take on the violence gripping the streets of Chicago.
Samson said his main focus is making the streets safe for the next generation of children coming up.
“I’m accustomed to it,” he said. “But you gotta help the youth. I want the youth to have it better than me, so they know what’s going on and to know what to do and what not to do.”
Samson has been vocal in his support to end violence in his hometown. He even organized the “Increase The Peace” charity basketball game at Harper High School in South Side Chicago.
Samson addressed the violence in his hometown in the opening track on his latest mixtape “Samson Durant.” In “Media,” a Chase N Dough production, Samson addresses violence that occurred at his March 21, 2013 concert at Mr. G’s nightclub where seven people were shot.
Violence occurred during an album release party early Thursday morning after seven people were shot inside a Chicago nightclub, according to ABC 7.
King Samson took to Twitter to send his condolences to victims following the melee.
“CONDOLENCE TO THE PEOPLE WHO GOT HURT IN THE CLUB VIOLENCE LAST NIGHT..CHICAGO WE GOTTA DO BETTER #STREETGOD,” the “ChiRaq Streets” rapper wrote.
Samson addresses this tragedy, rapping, “They shooting in the club, no one arrested/I just wanna rap, that’s my profession/That sh*t out of my league, that’s my confession/And if I got it on me, it’s protection.”
Samson’s “Samson Durant” is a prelude to his upcoming main course “Street God.”
