Detroit-bred rapper Big Homie was arrested this week after an Instagram Live video linked a gun he was flaunting to seven shootings.
Upon learning this, fellow Motor City rapper 42 Dugg hopped in the Say Cheese comment section on Instagram to school the 22-year-old on how to use Instagram properly.
“So Instagram as the world see it: ah place to show off who you are in the streets because It’s ah 90 percent chance when you ah new face no one have heard of you, no one know who you are or what you did in the streets,” he wrote. “so let me show how many guns I got ,that don’t work let me show what kinda guns I got that don’t work…etc etc etc.
“Instagram as you should see it ah outlet to brand yourself, show off hard you is how different you are, how fresh you be how talented you is, where you came from, how far you came, introduce ah few different ideas AH PLACE TO GET RICH ah place to gain notoriety not for what you donein the streets but for what you showcasing.”

42 Dugg, who’s only four years older than Big Homie, then vowed to guide the incarcerated rapper along as he tries to navigate the music industry. He also called on other people in the rap community to take other fledgling artists under their wings.
“I’m not saying this to say the younging stupid,” he continued. “It’s just ah learning situation for him for me for everybody this was me last year so. of course I’m gone help him because somebody helped me so instead of bashing young n-ggas y’all should correct em give them/us ah different way to see shit.
“we might NOT SEE SHIT HOW YOU SEE BECAUSE OUR SITUATION AINT LIKE YOURS FREE THE YOUNGING WE COMING TO GET YOU CUZ.”
42 Dugg just dropped his latest mixtape, the aptly titled Free Dem Boyz, through Yo Gotti’s Collective Music Group (CMG) imprint last month. The project boasted features from Roddy Ricch, Future, Lil Durk, Rylo Rodriguez, EST Gee, Fivio Foreign and Rowdy Rebel.
As for Big Homie, he’s currently being held without bond on charges that could net 10 years in federal prison.
