Written by 

Optimized-lilphatBaton Rouge-based rapper Lil Phat, born Melvin Vernell III, was shot and killed outside an Atlanta hospital last night. Reports indicate that he was visiting his newborn baby when he was shot several times while sitting in his car in the parking deck near Northside Hospital. Police are looking for two persons of interest who were seen running from the scene.

Lil Phat was a member of the Trill Entertainment family which also features Webbie, Foxx, Mouse, and Lil Boosie. It was on Webbie’s single “Independent” where Lil Phat made his name. The Trill family of artists have been in the news recently as Baton Rouge rapper Lil Boosie was acquitted of first degree murder charges stemming from the 2009 shooting of Terry Boyd.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future.
