Lil Reese is paying homage to the memory of Jordan Davis who was shot and killed Nov. 23, 2012 for playing his music loudly in his vehicle.
Reese reposted a tweet onto IG by Davis family attorney John M. Phillips who wrote, “Monday (11/23) is 3rd anniversary of 4 boys listening to @LilReese300 when Michael Dunn opened fire killing Jordan Davis. #BlackLivesMatter.”
Lil Reese was pleased with the Oct. 1 verdict a Florida jury handed down to Michael Dunn who was found guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Davis. Dunn was sentenced to life without parole on Oct. 17
“Finally #JusticeForJordanDavis 2da family keep ya head up,” Reese wrote on Twitter.
Davis’ parents, Ron Davis and Lucia MacBath, were grateful for the jury’s decision.
“Words cannot express our joy but also our great sorrow because … we know that Jordan has received his justice,” Davis’ mother said, according to CNN. “We know that Jordan’s life and legacy will live on for others, but at the same time, we’re very saddened by the life that Michael Dunn will continue to live. We are saddened for his family, for his friends and the community that will continue to suffer by his actions.”
Lil Reese revealed in May he would record a tribute record for Davis. Phillips requested the talents of Reese in honor of the 17-year-old victim that was killed for listening to the Def Jam rapper’s music.
“I see you awake @LilReese300. Can we get a tribute rap soon for young #JordanDavis? The family would be honored,” Phillips wrote Reese.
Reese confirmed he would pen the song after screenshotting Phillips’ request in an IG post.
“The lawyer for Jordan Davis case I gotta show dese people love rip 2 dayoung man…#300,” the caption on his post read.
Lil Reese was devastated upon learning the circumstances leading to young Davis’ death. The “10 Steps Ahead” rapper learned the teen was murdered following an argument with Dunn over loud music. It was Reese’s song “Beef” featuring Lil Durk and Fredo Santana that spurred the verbal confrontation between Davis and Dunn.
The “Supa Savage” rapper posted a news article to his Twitter account with the message, “Trippin.”
“So it’s Tru a kid got kilt for playin my s--- in Florida,” wrote on Twitter.
“S--- real,” he added in the caption of his IG post.
Phillips messaged Reese, writing, “His birthday would have been Sunday. I’m the family’s lawyer.”
Reese sent his condolences to the Davis family a day following the conclusion of Dunn’s trial.
“My prayers go out 2da kid family who was kill for playin my music Loudd…#300,” he wrote.
“This for the Jordan Davis case…#300,” the caption on his IG post read.
The family of Davis initially didn’t get the justice they hoped for following the senseless killing of their only child. A jury ended up deadlocked earlier this year on a decision to Dunn of first-degree murder.
Dunn, however, was convicted of three counts of attempted murder. Each charge carries a minimum sentence of 20 years.
Davis was with three friends inside a parked SUV outside a Jacksonville convenience store gas station when Dunn and fiancé Rhona Rouer parked alongside their vehicle.
Dunn complained the youths were playing their music too loudly and asked they turn it down.
An argument soon followed between both parties. Dunn alleged he saw a shotgun barrel from Davis” car before he produced a handgun and sprayed nine bullets into the SUV, striking Davis three times, according to CNN.
No weapon was found in Davis’ vehicle upon investigation.
Dunn and his fiancé fled the crime scene and drove back to their hotel 40 miles south to St. Augustine, CNN reports. Dunn never notified authorities, but instead ordered pizza, took his dog for a walk, ordered a movie and poured a glass of rum and Coke.
