Released a month ago with already nearly half-a-million page views, rap song “Lil Mouse Get Smoked” has created quite a stir. The song, which celebrates violence and murder, was penned by a 13-year-old Lil Mouse who lives on the South Side of Chicago. While the song continues to pick up steam, NewsOne spoke with violence and mental health expert Terrie Williams as well as Lil Mouse’s producer, P. Noble, about whether this type of music — in light of what’s happening in our communities — is acceptable.
Barely a teen, Lil’ Mouse appears in “Lil Mouse Get Smoked” in his Roseland neighborhood, clutching a grip of money and posing in front of a BMW. Shamelessly spewing expletives while painting a depressing picture of his surroundings, Lil’ Mouse says:
I’m rollin’, all my n*ggas rollin’
.30 clip and them hollow tips have his a** sitting in Roseland
Floating off a pill, p*ssy bad kill
N*ggas talking shit in the club, you better watch yourself
