Following the win over the New York Knicks, the Bulls big man confirmed that the manager of rapper Lil Durk, who was shot and killed early Friday morning, was at an event of Noah’s just hours earlier, discussing a way to get involved in Noah’s “Rock the Drop’’ anti-violence campaign. Uchenna Agina, 24, was shot at 1:50 a.m. Friday, while sitting in a car in the 8400 block of South Stony Island Avenue, according to authorities. “It’s very sad,’’ Noah said. “What’s going on in this city is very real. I signed up for this, and you know that I’m just doing everything I can to do something positive. We just need to keep up the good fight. I know that everything I’m doing with my foundation comes from my heart, and I think it’s really important that we don’t turn our backs on anybody. “I just know that someone came to my house and we were talking about doing some work for the kids, doing something positive, and he got murdered. I never experienced anything like that. My respects go to his family and to his friends. I just hope that we can find solutions.’’ Chicago Sun-Times
According to Noah, while he’s been warned by some people to stay away from various rappers in the community, the death of Agina has made his resolve even stronger. “No question, and we need everybody involved,’’ Noah said. “That’s why these rappers, a lot of people tell me to stay away from certain people. I’m not staying away from anybody. We need everybody involved in this. The reason why I think these rappers are important is even though their message is violent in Chicago, they are a force. And I want to engage with them and I want to work together with them to do something positive. Chicago Sun-Times
