A SHOOTOUT. Okay?
And in true rap fashion, someone was killed. (Because what’s a shootout without a murder?)
Per the story:
Witnesses told the Enquirer the problem started when a large group of men at the night club became upset after money was being thrown from the stage by one member of a rapper’s entourage.
“It was supposed to be for the ladies,” said one witness, who asked not to be named. “But it (the money) was hitting the guys in the face and they were like, ‘We got money’ so why are you throwing money at us?’”
The tension mounted and moved outside, where the witness said T.I. was trying to get his group packed up in their vans.
“T.I. was telling his boys, ‘Come on let’s go. Let’s Go.’ And the Cincinnati boys were like, ‘Yea, let’s go.’”
The witness said about four people – believed to be from Cincinnati — followed the rappers’ vans in a large vehicle, possibly a GMC Tahoe.
The witness said one shot was fired in the parking lot, but he did not think it was related to the tension.
“They were just showing off,” the witness said.
The names and conditions of those shot were not available. They were all taken to University Hospital.
I’ll never understand these guys just throwing money (even though I hear HoZone was a part of something involving money being thrown yesterday). There are plenty of things they could be doing with their money than just throwing it in the air. Katrina victims, anybody? They’re still there, even though it’s not talked about as much in the press anymore.
This was just plain ol’ ridiculous.
