TKC FACT CHECK!!! MIDTOWN KANSAS CITY WEEKEND MURDER AMID UPTOWN THEATER YO GOTTI HIP-HOP CONCERT!!! NEARBY WESTPORT BAR SCENE VINDICATED IN WARNING AGAINST RAP MUSIC THREAT???
Tragically downplayed by all of Kansas City mainstream news, over the weekend, there was chaos on Midtown Kansas City streets following a deadly shooting in the treacherous Uptown parking lot during a high-profile rap concert.
Former Kansas City Chiefs Footballer Dwayne Bowe, who performed with Yo Gotti, took to Instagram to express his frustration over the violence.
Credit where it's due, only Fox4 bothered to mention the local hip-hop concert connection at all in a brief write-up.
Even better, police emergency response recordings offer an important perspective of the melee wherein dozens were running through the street and witnesses report a massive gun fight not just one fatal shooting.
Now that the dust has settled, here's the question for our blog community . . .
IS WESTPORT VINDICATED FOR HIP-HOP FEAR AMID THIS CHAOTIC WEEKEND SCENE KICKING OFF THE SUMMER CONCERT SEASON?!?!?
Fake news pundits lament Westport's "unwelcome" attitude toward hip-hop & rap music but always manage to overlook riotous and deadly scenes like this incident over the weekend. For that reason and the need for an honest conversation on this topic, our blog community highlights this deadly Kansas City hip-hop altercation as more local rap music concerts are on the way this Spring & Summer.
