Pinky - you're hilarious. I'm sure lots of people give a damn. They're likely attending to things like funeral arrangements, notifying family members, etc.

On another note, I didn't know the guy, but I echo the sentiments of the previous poster and feel badly for him regardless. I hope they find the person/people responsible for this and prosecute them quickly, with great justice for his family's sake.

I get a kick out of you, TMZ. Absolutely no details whatsoever. He was shot and killed. Was the suspect apprehended? Is anyone looking for suspects? Was there an altercation prior to him being shot?

You need to hire journalists that graduated high school and not just young dumb people to make Harvey feel smart and hip.

meh... sh*t happens. I'm sure it had nothing to do with him living the rapstar thuglife. Just another random killing at 2am in the city.

I did know Corey... he went to high school with my daughter... they went to the prom together... he was a good guy and it is a shame. 32 years old - so young, too young to be taken from us. I can't image what that phone call was like for his Mom... my heart cries for her. He will be deeply missed by his friends and family. R.I.P. sweetie.

BET is a racist channel.

This is a serious question: Do black people deny their racism against whites?
