Q Money's Family Says Rapper Acted In Self Defense In Shocking Murder Case

The rap star is currently locked up and accused of gunning down a childhood friend.

(AllHipHop News) Last week, the shocking news broke that rising rapper Q Money was arrested for murder in Fulton County, Georgia.

The Cleveland rapper was involved in a dispute with a man identified as Calvin Alexander Chappell, inside of a home in South DeKalb County, Georgia on Monday.

Witnesses inside of the residence claim they woke up to a commotion and when they went downstairs to check on things, they allegedly witnessed Q Money standing over Chappell's body, still clutching his gun.

The men took the gun from Q Money, born Qamar Williams and pushed him out of the residence.

The rapper eventually turned himself into police and formally charged with murder late last week.

Q Money's parents said they were familiar with Chappell, who was a friend of their son since childhood and offered condolences to his family for their sudden loss.

But Q Money's family also said they believed he acted in self-defense.

"We feel Qamar was a victim in this situation as well due to his life being completely being altered behind this event," the family said in a statement.

"Qamar is an energetic, enthusiastic young man and has no malice in his heart for anyone," the statement reads. "As the facts and evidence continue to become available, we are sure that they will show that Qamar acted in self-defense from feeling as though his life was at risk and being threatened. We are deeply saddened by the way the information that has been released portrays the night in question. We are here 100% to support our Son Qamar."

Check out the full statement below:

First, we would like to send out our deepest condolences to the Chappell Family at this unfortunate time of loss. We were very familiar with Calvin Alexander Chappell in his younger years with our son. He was a kind young man with a bright future as a singing recording artist.

Our son Qamar was focused on bringing positive energy through his music. He started his career from the ground up and does not promote violence or portray the use of guns in any of his visuals that he releases. His rapid rise to stardom fueled his ambitions to continue to work hard to get his career to the next level until he had reached the goals that he had set for himself. Qamar loves his son, his family, and his craft. He has shown perseverance to eventually have become the next biggest artists ever.

At the recent tragic loss of Nipsey Hustle, all artist are finding themselves thinking about what would they do if placed in a predicament that they would have to protect their lives if it were being threatened due to being a celebrity.

We feel Qamar was a victim in this situation as well due to his life being completely being altered behind this event. Qamar is an energetic, enthusiastic young man and has no malice in his heart for anyone. As the facts and evidence continue to become available, we are sure that they will show that Qamar acted in self-defense from feeling as though his life was at risk and being threatened. We are deeply saddened by the way the information that has been released portrays the night in question. We are here 100% to support our Son Qamar.

On April 18th, 2019 Qamar turned himself into the Atlanta Dekalb County Police for further review of this case.

We are praying for the Chappell family and we ask that you keep our family in your prayers as well. We look forward to a positive outcome for our son Qamar “QMoneyyyyy” Williams.

***Thank You

From the Family of Qamar Akee Williams***
