Pulled up with a 45 out the window, Shot up the block. Never thought my baby would be on
that block. Don't look now but Lil Jada just got shot. Pierced her lungs and she's laying there
dying. I'm trying to save here. Guess she got caught up in the ambush. Dang, man she only
eight years old. Why did the killer have to shoot up my block. The last words slip out of her
mouth " Mommie tell daddy I love him and I love you too." She goes silent. Lil Jada slipped
away like I wish I could. Jada didn't know that they was going to shoot up our block. Dang a
babies life slipped away for good because the gangs couldn't wait to fight and pull out that 45
shooting up a block with innocent children on it. Rest in peace lil Jada. You will always be
remembered lil moma.
