Yesterday, a tragic event happened that has left the hip-hop world in mourning and shock, Anthony “Big Jook” Mims, the older brother of famed rapper Yo Gotti, was tragically killed in a shooting outside Perignons Restaurant & Event Center in Memphis, Tennessee.

The incident occurred on yesterday evening, just hours after Big Jook had attended a funeral service. The tragic news has sent ripples through the music industry, casting a somber shadow over the vibrant city known for its rich musical heritage.

Big Jook, a significant figure in his own right within the Memphis rap scene, was more than just Yo Gotti’s brother. He was a man who navigated the labyrinth of the city’s streets. This latest incident adds another tragic chapter to the ongoing story of violence that often intertwines with the world of hip-hop.

The city of Memphis, renowned for its blues and birthplace of rock and roll, is now echoing with the mournful notes of loss. As the news of Big Jook’s death spreads, many are left questioning the motive behind this senseless act of violence.

The Motive: A Deadly Game of Chess in the Memphis Rap Scene

Contrary to the popular belief that life imitates art, in the case of Yo Gotti brother Big Jook, it seems like his life was caught in a deadly crossfire of rivalry and retribution. Speculation is rife that Jook’s murder might be linked to the alleged role he played in the murder of legendary Memphis rapper Young Dolph.

Young Dolph, an icon in the Memphis rap scene, was gunned down in November 2021, a stunning incident that sent shockwaves through the hip-hop community. The streets whispered, and the word spread that Jook had been the mastermind behind the hit. Then with the arrest of his friend Hernandez Govan, that just led to more speculation of Jook’s involvement.

In the cutthroat world of hip hop, rivalries run deep, often spilling over into real-world violence. The alleged connection between Jook and Young Dolph’s death paints a chilling picture of a city caught in the crosshairs of a deadly feud.

“Big Jook”: A Life Cut Short Amidst Rising Tensions

In the cold light of dawn, the world woke up to the news of Jook’s violent demise. He was reportedly shot outside a restaurant in Memphis, a city already grappling with the tragic loss of Young Dolph. His sudden death has left a gaping hole in the heart of Memphis’ music scene, and a city in mourning.

Big Jook was not just Yo Gotti’s brother; he was a figure who commanded respect in his own right. As the news of his death spreads, the hip-hop community mourns the loss of a man who was more than just a footnote in Yo Gotti’s illustrious career. He was a man who stood tall amidst the towering figures of Memphis’ hip-hop giants.

As the city of Memphis reels from yet another tragic loss, the question on everyone’s lips is – when will the violence end? The streets of Memphis have become a battlefield, with the city’s music scene caught in the crossfire.

The dangerous beef between Paper Route Empire and CMG has claimed another life, further intensifying the bitter feud. As an elite hip-hop columnist, it’s disheartening to see the city’s vibrant music scene tainted by such violence. It’s high time for the industry to address these issues head-on, before the music is completely drowned out by the sound of gunshots.
