KANSAS CITY, Mo. — “I am not a Snitch, I am a Witness.” That’s the title of a new rap put forth by a not so “new” rapper, 71 year-old Carl Boyd, the creator and longtime host of the *Generation Rap* teen talk show.
In his rapping debut, Boyd says there have been too many crimes committed in Kansas City, and people know who’s responsible, but they won’t step forward.
Sixteen year-old Audrey North constantly misses her best friend and older brother- 20 year-old Ashton O’Guinn. He was killed April 23, 2012.
She says whoever killed him took two lives.
“He’s taken my smile. He’s taken my way of life. I had a brother, and I no longer have him, so he’s taken my life as well as my brother’s,” said North.
Audrey and her family don’t know who to hold accountable for Ashton’s death, even more than a year later.
