Master P is paying for the funeral of a 13-year-old Kentucky boy killed in a car crash after a police chase, a boy the rapper met three years ago after he was shot in the leg by a stray bullet.
Ki’Anthony Tyus died on December 22 when a Lexus SUV he was a passenger in crashed into a utility pole following a police chase in Louisville. The SUV had been reported stolen.
Tyus had become an anti-violence activist after he was struck by a stray bullet while playing basketball in 2015. That is when he first met Master P, who wrote about Tyus’ death earlier this week.
“My 13 year old lil soldier didn’t make it,” P wrote. “He got shot 2 years ago and got Killed 2 days ago. We need to stop this black on black crime. Rip Ki’Anthony Tyus. #weallwegot Just know that every decision comes with consequences and no one is too young to die. My prayers go out to his family ?? ”
A memorial for Tyrus was held on Sunday and a funeral is scheduled for later this week.
