Released a month ago with already nearly half-a-million page views, rap song â€œLil Mouse Get Smokedâ€ has created quite a stir. The song, which celebrates violence and murder, was penned by a 13-year-old Lil Mouse who lives on the South Side of Chicago.Â While the song continues to pick up steam, NewsOne spoke with violence and mental health expert Terrie Williams as well as Lil Mouseâ€™s producer, P. Noble, about whether this type of music â€” in light of whatâ€™s happening in our communities â€” is acceptable.
Barely a teen,Â Lilâ€™ Mouse appears in â€œLil Mouse Get Smokedâ€ in his Roseland neighborhood, clutching a grip of money and posing in front of a BMW. Shamelessly spewing expletives while painting a depressing picture of his surroundings, Lilâ€™ Mouse says:
Iâ€™m rollinâ€™, all my n*ggas rollinâ€™
.30 clip and them hollow tips have his a** sitting in Roseland
Floating off a pill, p*ssy bad kill
N*ggas talking shit in the club, you better watch yourself
