Rapper brings holiday feast to Brantley family

Posted at 8:24 AM, Nov 26, 2015
It's been five days since a 16-year-old Mojave High School student was shot and killed in front of dozens of students. North Las Vegas Police are still looking for Taylor Brantley's killer. Now, a local rapper wants to help his family this holiday.
 
Just days after Renee Burr's son was killed, she has to spend her first holiday without her 16-year-old son, Taylor Brantley.
 
"He's going to always be with us no matter what," said Burr.
 
In order to ease the pain just a little, rapper AP.9 delivered a Thanksgiving spread to the Brantley house.
 
"It's what I'm supposed to do. I mean, it's thanksgiving. You gotta give thanks and always give back. I was raised that way," said rapper AP.9.
 
"It's a blessing. It takes a lot of pressure off of me," said Burr.
 
Despite it being a holiday, in the back of Burr's mind she will be thinking about how no one has been arrested for her son's murder.
 
"I put it in God's hands. He will handle it. I just want it to be over and done with as soon as possible," said Burr.
 
Burr says there's plenty that she will miss about her son this Thanksgiving.
 
"Making us laugh and trying to eat all the peach cobbler," said Burr.
 
And on a more serious note...
 
"Just his presence you know. He was a beautiful person. He inspired love and joy. If you was sad, he tried to make you happy. And that's what I'm going to miss about him most," she said.
