      The family of Israel Ramirez, the slain bodyguard of rapper Busta Rhymes, has expressed their displeasure over Busta’s failure to cooperate with the law in ongoing investigations. According to the NY Daily News, Rhymes told Ramirez’s family that he would tell authorities what he knew but never did.

      "We really don’t want anything to do with that man," Ramirez’s sister, Sonia Rodriguez, told the Daily News. "He could stop breathing tomorrow, and I wouldn’t care. Whatever happens to Busta Rhymes is not going to bring back my brother."

A police source also said that Busta “doesn’t want to lose money by getting the reputation for talking to cops, so a killer remains free."

      Not only has Busta Rhymes failed to cooperate with the law to find Ramirez’s killer, he has also broken financial promises made to his family. Stephanie Hires, the mother of the victim’s 6-year old son, is enraged that Busta has provided no financial support for her child, Stiles.

      29-year old Ramirez (fondly referred to as “Iz”) was gunned down at the Green St. studio known as Kiss the Cactus last February. Cops found the blood-soaked father of three on his back, on the sidewalk and he rushed him to Woodhull Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 1:10 a.m.

      Despite the fact that there were about 500 people, including 50 Cent, DMX, Lloyd Banks and Tony Yayo, at the video shoot where Iz was killed, no leads have been developed in the investigations.

      And you wonder why hip-hop gets such a bad rap.

  1. busta needs to stay true to his word and stop worryin bout other niggsz….snitchin on a nigga for personal gain is one thing but doin it in respect for ya boi is another

  2. I FEEL BUSTA, HE DOESN”T WANNA EARN THE TITLE AS A “SNITCH” BUT IF THAT YO NI99A I WOULD ATLEAST FIND OUT WHO KILLED HIM AND DEAL WIT IT MYSELF & TAKE NIGGAZ HEADS OFF.

  3. Nobody respects a rat! Noone knows whats on Bustas mind so let him handle it the best way he knows how. If someone kills your man,then man up and go handle your biz.Talking to the cops is not an option!

  4. ^If the bottom line is to “handle your biz” then you might as well help the cops “handle it” legally, rather than get yourself an avoidable sentence in the name of revenge.

  5. That’s a growing problem that we have in the hip-hop culture… Is it right to snitch for any reason. Someone kills your friend or family member, the killing is witnessed by someone. Wouldn’t you want that person to speak up so that you know who killed your loved one? Busta will feel this one, what comes around, goes around.

  6. There is no such thing as snitchin when it comes to your boy, see snitchin is when you tell on a muffuga cause you jealous or just trying to get some pussy..Nigga tell the truth..is just being a man..or atleast pawn your bracelet..and take care shorty..KARMA
