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.

I see the point about the concert but let's be honest. That parking lot has always been trouble and even the jazz patrons were getting mugged.

MILLIONS in CID taxes for every business and resident near that block and KCMO still can't get some better street lights?

Your tax dollars NOT at work.

Too bad it's one block over from the new streetcar route, so there will be no improvements.

Westport does have hip hop nights, like the one where that off duty cop was killed. Can you blame them for being nervous?

Dwayne Bowe.

Does he memorize his lyrics? Because he could NEVER remember the playbook even though he was pretty great post route.

Also, that dude LOVED weed.

If you had a hip hop cncert and all the people attending it were white, do you think people would get shot? No, but that isn't the type of people that go to hip hop concerts.

I mean sometimes I am so thankful that i don't have any family friends. If I did, I might go out sometime and as we see, that can be deadly!

^^^ Wrong again. There was a mostly white rap concert in Methdependence last year and somebody was killed last year too.

Apparently you don't know the juggalos very well.

@9:06AM, There was also a pretty big country concert in Las Vegas last year that you might remember, pretty sure over 58 people were killed there and If I remember, all the performers were white and the vast majority of victims were too, but I digress.

Why do those rap artists always have to wear so much bling?

Tunnel Vision Progressive said...

Why does it appear that whenever there is some type of gathering of people at an entertainment venue this type of behavior happens?
One in KCK not too long ago, Westport has their problems, and now the Uptown.
As long as violence is not happening in the downtown loop KCMO city officials seem to be mum on these type of incidents.
Slie makes his appearances at events where he can promote himself and very seldom decries the violence.
KCMO is in deep trouble and the officials need to step up to the plate and show some real leadership instead of kicking the issue down the road and holding these feel good meetings.

Another Stupid NO Talented HIP HOP venue was shut down permanently over a deadly shooting back in 2007 in johnson county, seems like that's all these Degenerate pathetic THUGS know !!!

There was another deadly shooting back about 3 or 4 years at yet another Stupid HIP HOP NO Talented club in the west bottoms and their license yanked for too many problems.

Frankly their so-called music is SHIT anyway, with NO Real Talent, none of em' know or can actually play a real musical instrument, todays young punk pathetic generation of mental misfits.

Their all Low life Dipshits, and incidents like this just proves what pathetic TRASH they are !!

Rap & Hip Hop, biggest damn joke to the music industry, as well as those that promote the SHIT !!

INTERSTINGLY, look at many pf the Degenerates have been shot killed / murdered by other Thug Homie Jack Asses thru the years !!

Their so-called music SUCKS, is pathetic, ain't worth a shit, and takes NO Real Actual talent, other than jumping around like their on fire with all kinds of dumb cheap fake gold jewelry dangling from their necks.

and making all kinds of Stupid looking hand signs like they got muscle spasms from jerking off too much

its SHIT Music for those with Shit for Brains !!!

Very interesting that the media minimally covers this incident. The media is acting as if mayor Slie and his bullhorn is controlling their output. They are Slie's puppet on a string.

What goes around comes around since the hop-hop and rap lyrics encourage violence. The clientele are just acting out the lyrics.

These events all need to be moved to the 18th &Vine District to help the Jazzbo Museum claw its way back uphill to a merely insolvent status.

And that includes concerts by The Insane Clown Pussies and their ilk - if the "juggaloes" are such bad asses, they shouldn't have any problems with this location.

9:27 AM comment asks: Why do those rap artists always have to wear so much bling?


Rap music arose from the imagination of closeted homosexual young black males who had little going for them in life. In a twisted schizophrenic cry for help, they sought to publicly portray themselves as everything they were not in reality...powerful, cash-rich, virile, and commanding.

So another generation of predominately-black young males has squandered their opportunity for advancement via education, training, and work. Why stay in school and work hard, when you can pretend to be a gangster, smoke weed, drink liquor, and fuck whores?

And besides, after you fuck up your life, go to prison or get killed, leave unmarried black mothers behind to fend for themselves, babies fatherless and doomed for the next generation, there will be people like Jenee Osterizer and plenty of white liberals who will light a vigil candle in your name, while perpetuating the myth that an invisible institutional racism was the source of your dysfunction.

Now you know.

Black people don't read The Star. It's mostly white people, and white people in the suburbs at that. They are publishing for their audience.

I wonder if sLIE knows it’s too dangerous to live downtown, thanks to his pro murder stance it’s not safe to go anywhere anymore.

Indian Creek Hate Crime Victims said...

Thanks for setting us straight everyone!! I can't believe that we all thought that there was a correlation, causation and connection between violent Blacks, violence and Rap Music!!!!

I guess that fine young black man, who was no doubt on his way to choir practice every time he killed one of us, was listening to The Beatles when no engaged in his life's profession.

This changes everything! Hell, all of you parents should send your children, post haste to Rap Concerts all the time so they can soak up the "vibrancy".

If, by some "lightning striking" chance, your children are shot, mugged, raped or robbed within close proximity of a Rap Concert where the 'artists' are screaming for "Whitey's" scalp, then, you can take comfort in the emergency room, or, the morgue as you view the body, that Rap Music is anodyne and a harmless expression (Worthy of a Pulitzer-ask Kendrick Lamar- so it has to be good, right???!!!???) of helpless, Protected Class Victims, who are no longer, "aspiring Rappers" and that, that is a good thing for "good whites" to approve of.

We are dead as fuck, in one of the MANY, Black On White Hate Crimes that the media ignores here in this city and all over America.
