Master P to Cover Funeral Costs for 13-Year-Old Boy Killed in Crash
Rapper and businessman Master P will pay for the funeral of a 13-year-old Kentucky boy killed in a car crash after a police chase.
News outlets report Ki’Anthony Tyus was a passenger in a car reported stolen that crashed into a utility pole Dec. 22, after a Louisville Metro police pursuit. Ki’Anthony’s family says they don’t know why he was in the car.
Spokesman Dwight Mitchell says police are probing whether the chase violated the department’s strict pursuit policy.
Ki’Anthony was an anti-violence activist, becoming the face of Louisville’s “Hood 2 Hood” movement after being hit by a stray bullet while playing basketball in 2015. Percy Miller, known as Master P, met Ki’Anthony after that shooting and stepped in to cover the costs of Thursday’s funeral for his “lil soldier.”
I know I’m not God and I can’t save the world. I realized a lot of these adults are not going to listen. The real reason I leave my mansion to keep coming back to the hood is to educate and try to save the next generation. Maybe a lot of us didn’t get what we wanted for Christmas but we should be thankful we are alive. My 13 year old lil soldier didn’t make it. 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 ---- Could’ve been the next Lebron James.
