In a poignant return to the public eye, Yo Gotti stood alongside 42 Dugg on stage for the first time since the tragic murder of his brother, Big Jook. The emotional appearance occurred during the “Welcome Home” concert hosted by the “We Paid” rapper on Friday (January 19), featuring a stellar lineup of Hip Hop luminaries, including Lil Baby, Lil Durk, Meek Mill, Black Youngsta, and Dej Loaf.

As Gotti and 42 Dugg delivered a performance of the 2016 track “Fuck Em,” spectators couldn’t help but notice that Yo Gotti was wearing a bulletproof vest.

The heart-wrenching incident involving Big Jook, born Anthony Mims, unfolded on January 13 outside Perignons Restaurant & Event Center. Memphis police responded to gunfire reports near Winchester Road at around 4:15 p.m., finding two gunshot victims. Big Jook was rushed to St. Francis Hospital, where he was tragically pronounced dead. Another individual, transported privately to the hospital, remains in critical condition after being airlifted to Regional One Health in Memphis.

Sources indicate that the shooting occurred shortly after Big Jook attended a funeral for a friend, a poignant detail he had publicly mourned on social media.

Big Jook played an integral role in Yo Gotti’s record label, Collective Music Group (CMG), actively contributing on the business side and promoting the label’s roster, which includes Moneybagg Yo, GloRilla, 42 Dugg, Blac Youngsta, EST Gee, and Mozzy.

Amidst the shock of the murder, Rick Ross offered a message of unity, particularly for the city where Jook lost his life. “Put the ski masks down, put the guns down. Let’s embrace each other. Let’s show that love. Rest in peace to all our good brothers,” expressed the MMG boss.
