Because a rapper ain’t legit unless he’s got a few plugs in him.*
Rapper Fabolous was shot early Tuesday as he stood at a Manhattan parking garage, spurring a sequence of events that left him both hospitalized in stable condition and under arrest, police said.
The 28-year-old rapper, whose legal name is John Jackson, was shot once in the thigh when a male with a gun approached him and three others and opened fire, police spokesman Sgt. Mike Wysokowski said.
The four jumped into a vehicle and fled, attracting the attention of police when they ran a red light. Officers stopped them and discovered two loaded guns in the vehicle, both of which were apparently unlicensed, Wysokowski said. All four men were arrested, and charges were pending.
The rapper was taken to a hospital. Police were searching for the shooter.
Eight more shots, and he’s guaranteed to go multi-platinum. (Remember Fiddy set the standard at nine.)
Maybe our girl Saadia can hook him up.
His street cred would probably go through the roof once she’s finished with him.
*I know I’m a day late on this, but I couldn’t let it pass without commenting. Besides, it’s a perfect tie-in to South Park Saadia.

>Remember the routine Cedric the Entertainer had about some dude introducing himself by the name of "Delicious." Well, that's about how I feel about a rapper named Fabolous. I don't know, the two just don't mix. Back in the day we ain't have no R&B folk getting shot — well, there was Sam Cooke and of course, there was Al and the grits but it was never some "unknown" assailant shit and everybody packing. Shyt the most they carried in the day was a straight razor (I know y'all remember those razor slices to the face).
>Its just the Sign of the Times Brother Juan….Hey Lo Can I get some Prince???
>Nevermind, Lo…I got this!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B55sNrO3jWEEnjoy!!!
>Good Morning, Everyone!First of all, Juan G is right. A rapper named Fabolous? (And he doesn't even spell it right!!) It just sounds kind of gay. (Not that there's anything wrong with that…) That's probably why those guys shot him–you can't really be intimidated by a guy who calls himself 'Fabolous.'Sheletha, thanks for the Prince. I got my 3 year old dancing to it.
>Speaking of NY, has anyone heard from Lance?
>I think he got stuck in the early October snow.I sometimes make things up.
>I e-mailed Lance. He's okay, just having some internet challenges for the time being but he's doing fine.
>He shoulda' just gone and named himself 'Chocolate Sprinkles'…
