Blac Youngsta has broken his silence following his brother’s death, and is looking to exact revenge.
According to RDC News, the rapper’s brother, Tomanuel Benson, was shot and killed near a Valero B.P. gas station in South Memphis on Friday morning (August 18).
Witnesses close to South Side Park reportedly heard several loud gunshots coming from a passing vehicle, with one of the bullets striking a young man who police later revealed to be Blac Youngsta’s brother.
Tomanuel was rushed to Regional One Hospital but was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Blac Youngsta spoke out for the first time following the tragedy on Sunday (August 20), stating he would “make the world pay” for what happened and that he is “ready for whatever come with this shit.”
“I Love U My Baby Brother Rest Up,” he wrote on his Instagram Stories. “I’m Gone Make The World Pay. I Swear To God. Nobody Safe. Standing Over Everybody. Everybody. 4LIFE.
“I’m Ready For Whatever Come With This Shit. It’s Ok. Don’t Feel Sorry For Me. I’m Not Gone Feel Sorry For Nobody. Only God Knows.”
He added: “Gone Make Sure They FeelMe. I Promise. Life Will Never Be The Same. But God Got Me. I’m The Strongest Man N The World.”

He continued: “I CHANGE MY LIFE AROUND LIL BROTHER I DONT ROBB OR SALE DOPE NO MORE. IM A IMPORTING PERSON NOW I DONT WORK FOR FOOD NO MORE LIL BROTHER.
“I WORK FOR MYSELF NOW AND I GOT OUR OTHER TWO BABY BROTHERS OUT THE STREETS AND GRANDMA AND MOMMY NOT STRUGGLING NO MORE.”
Then in 2019, Urban Islandz reported Blac Youngsta’s other brother, HeavyChampTD, was shot and killed in Miami.
