“As entertainers let's try some sh*t next year. Minding our own business. Not this respecting each others family, dead homies, or area they come from. Stop using someone else’s significant other as a one up to the other person. Actually showing the same love you expect to get,” Wiz wrote.
“Not sayıng any of these are a direct cause of violence but changing them could help,” he added.
