Kwame Gates, who goes by the rapper name K-Gates, has produced a documentary about violence in New Orleans, called "Murda Capital." He is hoping to shed light on the problems facing this city and stop the cycle of murder and violent crime.
Even though he is a rapper, he believes the rap culture has had a strong influence on young people, glorifying drugs, money and violence.
He introduced us to Althea Phillips, whose four sons were all killed in gun violence. As we left her house, Gates introduced us to a couple of rappers who call themselves the 8-9 Boys....
Then the conversation turned to why so many people carry guns. Gates stopped mid-sentence and a man who used to be in a rap group with Easy Money started yelling obscenities about Gates being in the neighborhood.
It was obvious it was time to leave, which we started to do. Then Easy Money, with his son and a friend alongside him, confronted the man. A conflict that should have been settled with words turned violent. Then we see the man is carrying gun and realize this could have turned deadly... Rest of story.
It could've been much worse.
