Hot Boy Turk's Younger Brother Murdered, Family Needs Assistance

Ronald Smith, younger brother to Lil Turk was found murdered yesterday. Suspects have been apprehended, but family needs funeral aid.

It has been announced to HipHopDX that Turk a/k/a Lil Turk of The Hot Boys lost younger brother Ronald Smith to gun violence yesterday (February 22). Smith was shot in killed early yesterday morning in the Jefferson Parish of New Orleans', the family's hometown. A 19 year-old, Travis Dennis, is already in police custody, and reportedly confessed to the killing.

Website has posted a statement from Turk on the loss of his younger sibling.

Noting a closeness with Ronald, Turk, the older brother asks fans to help his struggling mother. “My mother is mourning over the loss of her youngest child and over the fact that there is no insurance or funds to arrange the proper burial. I am asking for you to get the word out and to also help financially in any way you can.” The rest of the statement can be read at

At present, Turk is serving a 12-year prison sentence related to a Tennessee shooting of a police officer in 2004. The former Cash Money Records rapper has been in prison for nearly five years, and is expected to be released by 2017.

In October, Hot Boy brethren Juvenile spoke of the incarcerated fourth member of the late '90s super-group of Lil Wayne, B.G., Juvenile and Lil Turk. "I wish I could have him out here right now, but bruh, it is what it is,” said Juve of Turk. “He locked up in Tennessee. They got laws down there dude that’s from what…the 1800s. And by that being the situation, being against the police… I put some money up and everything to get him out dude, so it ain’t like we not behind him to get him out and we don’t wanna see him free, he’s just in a situation where it’s 'Johnny Law' and he don’t wanna see him free."

Juvenile, Mannie Fresh and Lil Wayne have all lost family members to tragedy in the course of their decade-plus careers.

HipHopDX extends our condolences to Turk, his mother and family and friends of Ronald Smith. We encourage our readers to help.

    R.I.P. I lost my homeboy the same way. :-( His killer was 18 at the time. When will this shit stop? I think there would be more awareness if real hip hop was on the radio. Instead they glorify all the wrong shit.

    No disrespect intended, this is a sad story but man - if he just didn't blow all his money on frivolous things Turk wouldn't be making donation calls from behind bars. I hope son gets a proper ceremony, but this should never have been an issue after Turk made it. SMH @rappers spending and spending with no vision for the future. $5,000 invested today in an index fund will be worth $400,000 in 33 years. Diversify your portfolios fools!

  • shams

    it's is a shame if cash money doesn't pay for the funeral after all his brother was one of your soldiers so,it's only right that baby pay for this funeral for the respect that you have for turk and his commitment to and contrubutions he has given to that just wasted 120,000 dollars on a a stupid ass ring

  • krime
