|Tyga and protege, Honey Cocaine|
The week's biggest story was when Tyga protege Honey Cocaine was shot Monday (March 19) in Omaha, Nebraska. The female rapper survived the shooting, and even tweeted within 24 hours that she was later shopping in New York City.
Police said a black Ford Taurus followed the band's bus to 16th and Jackson streets, and continued to fire, striking the bus and its trailer, shattering a window.One of the two people shot was taken to the hospital. The other person hit refused treatment at the scene.There were nine people in the bus at the time of the shooting, including two children.
Later in the week, Tyga revealed that the shooting stemmed from the Young Money rapper's decision not to have opening acts at his concert, prompting violence from local performers. Is there a way of saving hip-hop from itself?
