BLM Rapper Shot During Anti Violence Video

Can someone in the know explain what went down here? Who are the guys in the read T-Shirt and the "middle eastern" head gear? I've got my suspicions but I hope others more knowledgable will explain this.

Thanks

New Business?

Looks like "Fish Hot Chicken" on Cottage Grove between 42nd PL and 43rd, is now closed. I see signs for a new restaurant called "Mama's Deli and Grill", anyone have any information on it? I cannot find anything online.

  • Chris Willard Small Shop Cycles & Service

    It looks like it will be similar to the place that was there before--quick take-out burgers, fries, sandwiches, etc. On their sign it says that they'll also have pizza! A quick place to get slices would be great.
