The Game’s crew was targeted in Miami where a shooting broke out in front of a luxury hotel after he threatened Meek Mill. Get those deets, plus T.I.’s shocking response as to why rappers glorify violence inside…
Shooters targeted the Game and his entourage early this morning outside of a famous hotel in Miami. According to reports, a Mustang convertible pulled up at the valet outside of the Fontainebleau Hotel and fired multiple shots into a white Mercedes-Benz G Wagon around 7:30AM this morning. Police believe the G Wagon is associated with Game.
Luckily, the car was empty and no one was injured.
The west coast rapper was in town hosting and performing at STORY nightclub Thursday night, literally just blocks away from the hotel.
Game’s manager Wack 100 tells TMZ “the vehicle that actually belongs to their crew is the black Chevy SUV next to the G Wagon and inside the police tape. He says their vehicle was not hit. Game also had a white Range Rover parked about 15 feet away from where the shots were fired. “
What’s interesting is, Game called out Philly rapper Meek Mill during his set at STORY last night, threatening to beat him up when he saw him for "snitching" on him. Yikes.
Meek, who lost a cousin this week to gun violence, seemingly responded:
It’s unclear if the shooting is related to his rant, but its surely one heck of a coincidence.
In other rap news....
T.I. appeared on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” recently to chat about his family reality show "Family Hustle" and his latest single “War Zone.” After showing a clip of “War Zone” (that features some strong and powerful imagery), Trevor asked Tip why do rappers glorify violence in their lyrics, but are quick to speak out against injustices (specifically police brutality).
Tip eloquently responded, “I think people need to take into consideration that Hip Hop traditionally has always been a reflection of the environment the artist had to endure before he made it to where he was. So, if you want to change the content of the music, change the environment of the artist and he won’t have such negative things to say.”
That’s a good answer. Peep the clip above
