*Moved by the senseless beating death of a 16-year-old honor student by gang members in Chicago, rapper Nas has written an open letter to teens who throw away their future by battling each other.

As previously reported, Derrion Albert was repeatedly stomped in the head, punched and beaten with planks in a gang-related brawl outside of his school. Four teens have been arrested in connection with the murder: Silvanus Shannon (19), Eric Carson (16), Eugene Riley (18), and Eugene Bailey (17).

Nas, who lost his close friend Willie “Ill Will” Graham to senseless violence in 1992, wrote the following open letter:

Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars! Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool. Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But we chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Filas, and name plate chains. Deaths over 'he say she say'!!!!! 'I’m from this block or I’m from that block”, or 'my moms n pops is f***ed up now the whole world gotta pay!!!

This is clearly a problem of lack of proper up bringing and also has to do with a brain developmental issue. I am an african american grad student who was raised in an urban environment but i was blessed to been raised by a mother who saw that her 8 kids will have a better opportunity. It starts with the home, I cant play race card here. we cant. we have to stop blaming and do something before another life is taken. We are all GOD children, regardless of race, he gave all of us life, let take it back.

While we won't forget that lets also remember the whites who killed their own people and made them slaves/endentured servants/house servants; or the Indians who did the same. People kill people; people turn on people. You see it all the time. Serial killers kill regardless of age, race, color, religion, education, or social status. There are all kinds of discrimination out there. Change begins at home, no one is born racist.

Actually, my ancestors, from Ireland, were enslaved by the English. Also, the first generation of my family in this country was ostracized for being Catholic. You see, we have a lot more in common than you think. Don't just stand there, bust a move!

Ireland was even more f***ed up. If you lived on the wrong part of the country they discriminated against other Irish.

Not really..you are white and can blend...a black man never could do that. Your plight is not even close to 400 years of slavery and 60 years of Jim Crow Klan laws...get the picture.

"JESUS IS LOVE", Can we all just wake up every morning & tell everyone we see that "JESUS LOVES YOU & SO DO I". The teenagers & young adults needs to hear this every day, give them a hug when you are telling them that "JESUS LOVES YOU & SO DO I". Ask them to do the same to everyone they see. Maybe this is what they need. You just might touch someone heart that is feeling very low that day. You never know what is on someone mind. PLEASE YOUNG PEOPLE STOP KILLING EACH OTHERS!!!. PLEASE PASS THIS ON. JESUS LOVES YOU & SO DO I. HUGS, LOVE & KISSES FROM PHILADELPHIA, PA

I forgot to look and see your name on the slavery registry, oh yeah, YOU WEREN'T THERE!!! You are so misguided. We as a people (blacks) will never get reperations, the Jewish people will never get over the halacaust, and Native Americans will never get their land back. Move on with your life and let go of the hatred you feel. My great grandmother was a slave, she worked for this white family raising their kids while trying to raise her own as well. I am not full of hate from it. I was never a slave and don't deserve anything. I work for what I have and appreciate all that I have achieved. I love and respect my family for all the racism we have endured not even 40 years ago, but I refuse to let all that make me a bitter small minded imbicile like you are.
