i live in the area that he did this and honestly no body gives a crap about him. what he did was wrong and he's only doing this because he was told to. i was there the day it happened and we left the event right afteward. the kid didn't do anything wrong and didn't deserve to be treated like that. i hope one day someone picks him up spins him and throws him on his head. but then again, they probably have multiple times.

This Akon animal is disgusting - what a great guy for the black community to look up to. He really made something of himself. Trash of a human, trash trash trash.

I applaud Akron -- He now sees that the only people losing anything by senseless Gun violience is the people involved -- Poor Dolla, who supported his whole family with his music, and the stupid kid who shot him, who will probably eventually lose his life while incarcerated. RIP Dolla -- Maybe through your death, you will help others to change their ways.

Go to hell. Can't stand his face or his crap music. His voice and the key he "sings" in makes my ears vomit.
