Chicago rapper Lil Bibby recently sat down for an interview with Vlad TV.He talked about how out of control the violence has gotten in his city and how young the offenders have gotten.
Bibby, who is 22, said that when he was coming up most kids started getting involved in gangs and murders at 16 or 17. Now they're doing it at 12 or 13.
President Trump tweeted in January that if the violence isn't brought under control he would send in federal troops.
"If Chicago doesn't fix the horrible "carnage" going on, 228 shootings in 2017 with 42 killings (up 24% from 2016), I will send in the Feds!" Trump wrote.
When asked his thoughts on Trump's comments Bibby said he agreed with him.
"Sh!t, it's sad to say ... send them motherf*ckers in," the "You Ain't Gang" rapper told Vlad. "These my people. My people still out there doing the crazy. But sh!t, that's probably what you need to do."
Bibby believes that if gang members saw troops on their street it would curtail the violence dramatically.
"Motherf*ckers ain't gon' be coming through doing no crazy sh!t. I'm telling you that," he reasoned. "As a matter of fact, on our blocks the police used to park right there. Wherever we was all hanging at they used to park right there. Because if they leave it'll be some motherf*cking shots fired.
"So, that's the only reason how you can stop the violence ... if you put them people out there. But soon as they leave and the people start finding out their schedule, that's the times they gonna try to come through and do that crazy sh!t. But if you put them people out there, ain't gon' be no crime."
According to HeyJackass.com, a website that monitors crime in Chicago, there have been 62 homicides and a total of 372 people shot in the city so far this year, and we're just over a month in.
