When I first saw this interview I was blown away to see the image of Robert “Yummy” Sandifer in the background. I remember his story so vividly on the news back in Chicago. He was a shortie like 10 or 11, from the Roseland Community (Wild 100s) involved in a gang and murder. He was murdered by his own gang members for fear he would cooperate with police ( google for deets). The irony of Tupac speaking on the subject of friends...wondering if it was intentional having the photo in the backdrop.
Anyway, at the time I thought this was just Chicago news but these issues affect many of our cities. The story was widespread across the country. •
Wonder what would have become of Robert if he was exposed to more of the arts programs in school? •
