Lil Durk is still reeling from the death of his friend J Money.
Jerome Wood, known to friends and family as “J Money,” died after suffering a gunshot wound to the head on Labor Day in the West Woodlawn neighborhood. He was 21.
The “This Aint What You Want” rapper shared an image of a text convo shared between the two to his Instagram account.
Durk longed for a response from his slain friend. But never received it.
“I wish he responded to the last text I aint wanna believe it #ripjmunna,” the caption on his photo read.
The Coke Boy was in disbelief upon hearing confirmation of Wood’s Sept. 2 death
“Rip @jmoney064_obloc s--- aint gone be da same nomo #OTFCRAZY
“Rip jmoney we just lost a savage who put tears in n----- family eye you aint never forgotten #oblock300 f--- da bricks
“Rip bro @oblock_jmunna s/o @fat_gleesh,” he wrote on Twitter and Instagram.
Despite the tragic loss, Durk is opting to keep his head up.
“Took my brotha away from me its all good doe we a see better days,” he wrote.
Durk’s sentiment echoes the powerfully emotional and poetic Tupac song “Better Days.”
Wood’s death represents the grim fate of many urban residents in a city that has been placed under national spotlight due to its high rate of gun violence.
The current homicide toll for 2013 stands at 302. The gun violence in the city continues to climbs with 15 Chicagoans having been murdered since Woods’ death.
No arrests have been made in the Sept. 2 shooting.
