The Game was scheduled to perform alongside Musiq and Ice Cube at the BET Hip Hop Awards filmed in Atlanta which aired last night. He missed his performance because his sister, up and coming rapper B-Fly, was shot during a drive-by. B-Fly was grazed by a bullet as she stood on the porch of her Compton home on October 14th. Word is that she will be ok, but The Game still chose to skip the awards to be with his fam.

B-Fly had this to say on her Myspace page: "...I truly believe in God!!! He has granted me another day at life, another day to love, another day to breathe, another day to bounce back, and another day to praise Him for life....I had so much to complain about until this brush with death surfaced but now I know that everything in my life has its purpose and place...“Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.”
...I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes. This is my wish for you: Comfort on difficult days, smiles when sadness intrudes, rainbows to follow the clouds, laughter to kiss your lips, sunsets to warm your heart, hugs when spirits sag, beauty for your eyes to see, friendships to brighten your being, faith so that you can believe, confidence for when you doubt, courage to know yourself, patience to accept the truth, love to complete your life. Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see life with a clearer view again. Sometimes it's the smallest decisions that can change your life forever."

If her raps are as profound and humbling as her words, I am now her biggest fan. If she can wish her shooter rainbows to follow the clouds, I can forgive the lady that cut me off this morning on La Cienega.
Stop the violence peeps. It's senseless.

Seriously. There is no reason she should still be living on Brazil Street. People sometimes think its a bad thing to leave where you come from. But your location will not change you as a person.
