Blac Youngsta spoke out for the first time following the tragedy last Sunday (August 20), stating he would “make the world pay” for what happened and that he is “ready for whatever come with this shit.”
“I Love U My Baby Brother Rest Up,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories. “I’m Gone Make The World Pay. I Swear To God. Nobody Safe. Standing Over Everybody. Everybody. 4LIFE.
I’m Ready For Whatever Come With This Shit. It’s Ok. Don’t Feel Sorry For Me. I’m Not Gone Feel Sorry For Nobody. Only God Knows.”

Blac Youngsta has lost three brothers in just under seven years. In November 2016, the Memphis rapper took to social media to reveal his heartbreak after losing one of his brothers.
“MISS YOU SO MUCH LIL BROTHER,” he wrote at the time. “I SWEAR TO GOD WHEN YOU DIED I THOUGHT ABOUT KILLING MYSELF NO LIE.”
Then in 2019, Urban Islandz reported Blac Youngsta’s other brother, HeavyChampTD, was shot and killed in Miami.
