Gotti Gives Back

Yo Gotti offered to help pay for the funeral costs of a 10-year-old Memphis boy who stabbed himself to death. According to Fox 13 Memphis, the Tennessean rapper has stepped up to help after hearing the sad story of Jaheim McKinzie. According to police, McKinzie killed himself after being beaten severely by his mother.

Memphis authorities say Robin McKenzie admitted to whipping the boy with extension cords and choking him, after which he walked into the kitchen and fatally wounded himself with a knife. Robin has been charged with child abuse for her actions prior to McKenzie’s death.

Gotti’s camp hasn’t revealed how much they plan to give, but any help is no doubt appreciated by a family going through such a trying time.
