UmpThe Uptown neighborhood has been on a tear this year in no small part to local jagoffs taking potshots at a one “Young Pappy” (rapper or something). This morning they finally connected:

“A Chicago rapper who had twice been the target of shootings that killed innocent bystanders last year was gunned down on a sidewalk in Uptown early Friday, authorities said.

Shaquon Thomas, 20, who posted rap videos under the name Young Pappy, was found shot to death around 1:35 a.m. in the 4800 block of North Kenmore Avenue, authorities said.”

In the process of trying to take out Mr. Pappy, two innocent people were gunned down:

“The first one occurred in February 2014 when a masked gunman opened fire at a McDonald’s restaurant at Pratt Boulevard and Clark Street. Markeyo Carr, 17, who had grabbed a few bucks from his mother before heading to the McDonald’s, was shot in the head and collapsed in the driveway. Three other teens were wounded.

The second one happened in July when a man fired shots in the 1300 block of West Devon Avenue and hit Wil Lewis in the back and the head as he waited for a bus. The 28-year-old was about to a new job as a photographer.”

In addition to the trail of bodies left behind, Mr. Pappy was also known to be a significant drain on city resources by partaking in hours-long SWAT standoffs.

Keep it short and to the point. Name calling and similar stupidity will be deleted. If you insist on writing several paragraphs, start your own blog.

    Mr. Pappy has finally shed his mortal coil. St. Peter is reportedly licking his lips as we speak.

    God bless, Mikey

      @Mikey: Why would St. Peter be licking his lips? Pretty sure Young Pappy is headed the other wayppy.

    It seems that Young Pappy ran afoul of another Rapper named Gun Happy.

    So does this mean we can call him Dead Pappy?

  7. Mikey™ May 29, 2015 at 11:38 pm

    Mr. Pappy is gonna go that way after good old St. Pete gives him the shod foot at the gates….licking his lips in exultation.

    Peace and love, Mikey

    This was a nice pick me up at the end of the week.

    I would like to see the costs associated with this piece of craps demise.

    I’d also like to see his rap sheet, or how about the cost of trying to keep him alive after he was shot.

    If he was “Happy Pappy” he could have left some offspring behind.

    Funeral Expenses?

    Makes me Slap Happy That “young Pappy” is history.

    • Mikey™ May 30, 2015 at 6:25 am

      Make that….slap happy that young pappy is taking a “dirt nappy”.

      Carry on…Mikey

        Sounds like the beginning of a good RAP tune for his Memorial Service.
        And remember, you can’t spell “CRAP” without “RAP”.

    It’s in the Bible ” you live by the word so shall you die by the sword” or in this instance a hand gun. Good riddance to the piece of thrash

    CPD finally caught up with murder suspect Kortillious Gipson.

    Last name GEORGE-IDA-PAUL-SAM-OCEAN-NORA, first name KORTILLIUS, common spelling.

    Laser scopes. If these fine tax paying law abiding individuals want to shoot each other..as well as hold their pistols like O dog ..90 degree tilt..Rham should reach out to the community and ask them to get laser scopes. They will increase accuracy of kills tremendously and one less person I have to pay for..

    • DMS May 30, 2015 at 12:42 pm

      /the lasers are a great idea, relatively inexpensive addition, I bought a simple one for a pistol for less than twenty bucks.
      But the way these guys shoot there would probably more blind guys from the lasers than dead ones.

    Now now boys,he was just starting to change his life around,he was just minutes away from doing that. Dead duck Daddy will never be able to reach his full potential.

    How come Pappy not be surrounded by the usual entourage that could take the bullets for him. All the big rappers have the hanger ons’ looking for their 15 minutes of fame. Taking a slug for a two bit rapper would give them that. I support the laser idea as the kill vs wounded ratio is deplorable. Lasers on 12 gauge shotguns give them a better chance of hitting the target but holding it at 90 degrees over your head when you fire it will lead to some em(barr)(assing) results.

    • DMS May 31, 2015 at 4:23 pm

      A 12 gauge and a laser? Not appropriate unless they are shooting deer slugs for ammo.

    Year-to-year / year-over-year shooting graph! Great work. Clearly shows the great work we are doing–shootings are down this year, by almost ten percent compared to April last year.

    I am sad another fine upstanding honor student, who helps out in his local church is gone.

  16. Kelly May 31, 2015 at 12:49 am

    Where are this weekend’s stats? Enough about the little douchebag.

    • DMS May 31, 2015 at 4:27 pm

      Easy does it Kelly, at least the results are accurate, you could always give City Hall a call and see what they have for stats, you sure won’t see these numbers in the newspapers or on the news.
      I love the site and appreciate the freebee.

  17. michael pfleger May 31, 2015 at 6:58 am

    Just wondering, you didn’t do any weekend tally’s. I use your site as a trusted site for info….will you continue to do that?

  18. Tony May 31, 2015 at 9:18 pm

    Dat Young Pappy be dead, took a bullet to the head. He be a rappin fool ever since he dropped out of school. Da bro’s in the hood figured he be up to no good. So they planned for Pappy an eternal nappy. Da first two times dey missed, now pappy be really pissed. However the third time dey try they popped Pappy through the eye. So though the story is not happy, the moral is that it does not pay to be Pappy.
