Lupe Fiasco weighed in on the death of Jonylah Watkins Thursday night.

The rapper released a new track "Jonylah Forever" dedicated to the six-month-old baby slain Monday afternoon. The song surmises how Watkins life could have been had she grown up in Chicago. While imagining her life, Lupe Fiasco imagines the girl attending King College Prep and taking art classes from Hadiya Pendleton.

Pendleton died in a shooting in January.
