Jadakiss is extremely upset about the recent shooting death of rapper Young Dolph. He says hip-hop culture is killing promising young artists and it needs to stop. Too many rappers are dying young over reasons that could be otherwise worked out.

TMZ caught up with Jada at Madison Square Garden and asked him for his thoughts on the killing. He didn’t mince words, noting that the violence must be addressed. Too much young talent is being wasted.

“We have to stop killing us. And we have to stop it immediately. ASAP. It has to be effective as of now. Immediately… Violence in general. Just losing so many young, talented brothers and sisters in this hip-hop culture, it has to come to a cease at some time or another.”

Young Dolph was killed in Memphis on Wednesday while purchasing cookies. He was on his way to hand out Thanksgiving turkeys in his old hometown. It was a death that didn’t need to happen, and Jadakiss wants it to stop.

Jadakiss was appearing at MSG for the Roc Nation job fair. He was sharing information on different benefits available for people trying to get back on their feet. Now, he’s using his voice to try and bring an end to violence in the hip-hop community.

The rapper is right. There is no reason for Young Dolph to be dead today. Hopefully more big names in the hip-hop world start taking a stand to protect young lives.
