Dominique Boyd, the mother of Shondale “Tooka” Gregory, who was shot and killed aged 15 in 2011, wants rappers to stop referring to her son in their lyrics. Boyd opened up about his son’s tragic death and the continued dropping of Tooka’s name during a recent interview with Say Cheese.

“My son had nothing to do with anything in this rap industry. He didn’t even know how to beatbox, let alone break a lyric for a rap,” Boyd told the outlet. he is disrespected and [mocked for] his death? It’s them, my son didn’t have that lifestyle. They’re the ones making him famous and blowing him up like that, because they keep saying his fucking name… You don’t even know my son.

Tooka was an alleged member of the Gangster Disciples, which are a rival street gang to the Black Disciples, of which Chief Keef is an alleged affiliate. Keef dissed the late Tooka in his tracks “3Hunna” and “John Madden.” Lil Durk and King Von also used his name in their lyrics.

“I just want to know why. Why? That’s all I have to ask them,” Boyd continued. “What did my son do to you that you disrespected him like that? Every song they do has, ‘We smokin’ on Tooka. Fuck Tooka this, fuck Tooka that. You know how many time my son is gone? Since 2011. It’s 2022 and it’s still a hot topic…I don’t want this lifestyle. He didn’t want this lifestyle. He can’t be here. and be his voice, so I’ll do it for him.

It is believed that Tooka’s murder was retaliation for the death of a Black Disciples affiliate.

“How could you kill someone…and make fun of it?” she asked. “What’s funny about that?” »
