There is a NOT TRUE racially charged story on the internet about rap star Gucci Mane's brother that needs to be debunked. The poorly written story comes from a known hoax site but some people aren't always aware of that. This is an example of careless, irresponsible journalism that goes on the assumption that black rap artists and drug violence go hand in hand.
The racist fake story starts with the header "Gucci mane Brother Was Shot And Killed After A Drug Deal Went Bad." The poor grammar is your first indication that the story is fake. The hack story goes on:
Bankhead, Atlanta, Rapper guccie mane brother Micheal Davis was gunned down after a drug deal went terribly wrong, according to reports. Thirty-year-old Micheal Davis the brother of gucci mane was shot and killed after a drug deal went awful, a witness claims she heard five gun shots. She looked out her window and saw a black Chevy caprice speed off with two males in it. She immediately dialed 911.
The hack story concludes:
Police arrived on the scene and discovered the body of Mr, Davis laying face down with multiply gun shot wounds to the head, detectives later declared it was a drug deal gone bad, because the robbers left one kilo of cocaine in the trunk of the vehicle that was stashed off.
Gucci Mane's REAL brother is fellow hip-hop artist "Young Throwback", and from the looks of his Twitter page he's alive and kicking. This fake story comes on the heels of a REAL shooting in Atlanta of a rap artist that occured last night. Rapper "Bankroll Fresh" was shot and killed outside an Atlanta recording studio late last night.
