Popular U.S Rapper, ‘Da Real Gee Money’ Shot Dead On Dallas Drive (Photos)

A young and upcoming U.S rapper has died from fatal gunshot wounds after an early morning shooting on Dallas Dr.
The young rapper
A 22-year-old local American rapper was shot to death early Sunday on Dallas Drive, Baton Rouge police said.
Garrett Burton, known as “Gee Money” or “Da Real Gee Money,” was found about 1:30 a.m. in a parking lot in the 1900 block of Dallas Drive, police spokesman Sgt. Don Coppola said, adding that he died at the scene.
No suspect or motive has been identified, Coppola said.
Baton Rouge activist, Arthur “Silky Slim” Reed said he had met Burton a few times, calling him a very dedicated musician.
“Rapping was his heart,” Reed said Sunday. “Rapping was definitely his love.”
Reed worried how young people will be affected by Burton’s violent death because so many teens looked up to the rapper as a local leader.
Da Real Gee Money who has a baby daughter with his girlfriend was leaving a recording studio before the incident.
He died at the scene after suffering from gunshot wounds.
 
“It’s sad to see such a young, vibrant individual’s (life) cut so short,” Reed said. “I’m just praying for his family, and, that his life will save someone else’s life that’s on the same track.”
Reed said he hopes people will learn to think twice about dialogue that normalizes violence, a topic that he said he heart often in Burton’s music.
“We have to watch what we speak into existence,” Reed said.
