What Is This World Coming To? Hint's the title. My frame of thought exactly, and the title of my blog; are pretty much, synonymous; and rightfully so. I often wonder, just What Is This World Coming To? It seems that jealousy, iniquity and hate has consumed way too many of us.
Senseless violence has claimed far too many innocent lives. How sad it is, that the Rapper Doe. B, who was most proud of his southern embedded Alabama rooted upbringing, would be murdered in this very state.
As you all may know, this past holiday season, Doe. B returned to his southern rooted city of Montgomery, in Alabama to give a live concert performance, of the song that some would say, "put him on". However, the celebration ended up being, that of a home-going for himself, and a young lady, who were both shot and killed the rappers very own event.
Doe. B was recently, signed to T.I's well known rap label "Grand Hustle", and even shot a video for his hit song "Let Me Find Out" in Montgomery, Alabama, his hometown.
This type of senseless violence is extremely troubling, and senseless. However this, horrific incident has upset so many of us.

"Doe B’s flame was extinguished just as it was beginning to burn its brightest.A well-regarded mixtape, a catchy breakout single, an authoritative stage presence and the backing of hip-hop heavyweight T.I. – Doe B had all the ingredients to dominate the music scene in 2014.
Doe B’s music was filled with tales of excess. Could he have brought something more substantial to his community? We’ll never know. That opportunity was robbed from him.
Glenn Thomas worked so hard to put Alabama in the national spotlight. He wanted to be the face of his community. It breaks my heart that his face will be synonymous with the violence that hinders Alabama's progress."
I couldn't agree more, with Mr. Bowser, how sad is it that the guy who carried the city on his back; had the haters in the city to carry him to his grave. This deeply saddens me. Rest in peace, Doe. B. My heart goes out to your family, friends, and fans. The world of hip-hop definitely lost a great lyricist.
