The beating death last week of south-side honor student Derrion Albert hasn't provoked as much reaction from the hip-hop world as, say, Jay-Z dissing on Auto-Tune, but Andrew Barber at Fake Shore Drive is keeping track of what little response there's been. So far it's pretty much just a couple of still-relevant songs Longshot pulled from his archives, a statement from Molemen member Vakill, and an open letter from Nas. It would be nice to see some of the Chi's bigger names weigh in one way or another. It may not be as big a deal as someone interrupting someone else at an awards ceremony, but it still deserves more notice than this.
