Toronto, ON – On the night of Monday, July 16th, a community BBQ in Scarborough turned deadly when bullets were fired into the crowd killing 2 innocent young people and injuring 22 others, including a toddler. The 2 killed were 14-year-old Shyanne Charles and 23-year old Joshua Yasay (R.I.P). Communities across Toronto were outraged and people have been especially vocal about the tragedy through Twitter, Facebook etc.

Toronto rapper P. Reign has dedicated a song titled “Angels” to Shyanne and Joshua, which you can listen to below. He has also organized a march for tonight (July 20th) in their memory. It begins at 7:30 p.m. and the meeting place is 4301 Kingston Road. There’s more on this story after the jump.

In the past few years, senseless acts of gun violence have increased across the city. This week in particular has been exceptionally alarming and just a few months ago a gunman opened fired in the food court at the Eaton Centre. Something needs to change. But what is the solution? More police? Tougher gun policies and laws? Education? In my opinion, gun violence among young people can’t be solved with short-term solutions. I’d say a combination on improving programs for youth, providing young people with more spaces and places to go and also aiding them in finding work. More often than none when young people are busy they are less likely to get into trouble. But hey, this is just what I think. I’d like to hear what you think. Comment below! #nomoreguns

She graduated from York University almost 2 years ago and since then has co-founded a youth led, social enterprise called The Next Edition which uses media and art to engage youth with their community. For the past year and a half she has been working with young aspiring artists who are looking for a way to showcase their skills and have their voice heard. With juggling weekly meetings, managing a website, and planning events for hundreds of people Natasha takes refuge in urban music. Researching and knowing the latest headlines, and newest tracks in the hip-hop world is something that she loves. But more importantly for her hip-hop is a lot more than just a genre of music, it is a culture and it has shaped who she is today. Finding a way to combine her passion for music, the knowledge she has gained from working with young people and the issues she has seen in the community is a goal Natasha would like to achieve in the near future. Recently, Natasha has taken on PR work for rappers and DJs.
