Young Buck Shot At 11 Times #Exclusive

 

Former G-Unit rapper Young Buck survived a drive-by shooting on Sunday morning. Police in Nashville, Tennessee, said his car was hit by 11 shots, and though 10 caused no harm, one caused a minor shoulder wound to his girfriend, Kenyetta Rainey.

The incident took place at around 3:30am on Sunday, as Young Buck – real name David Brown – was driving home from the La Bamba nightclub in Nashville. A white Chevrolet Tahoe pulled up next to their Cadillac Escalade, and 11 shots were fired from the car. Rainey was treated at Vanderbilt hospital and released later that day.

Police told reporters the rapper and his partner had been involved in a heated argument at the La Bamba. After club security broke up the dispute, both sides left the club at the same time.

A former member of 50 Cent‘s G-Unit, Young Buck has released three solo albums. The first, 2004’s Straight Outta Cashville, reached No 22 in the UK. In recent years, the rapper has struggled with legal and financial issues: in addition to a 2011 arrest on gun charges, Young Buck owes $11.5m (£7.26m) in tax, WSMV reports. The rapper’s assets are apparently in liquidation, and even his trademarked hip-hop alias could end up being sold. The gun case goes to trial in April.

Mystikal feat. Birdman & Lil Wayne – Original (Official Video)

In an interview with XXL, Birdman talked about signing fast rapping artist Mystikal to Cash Money Records, and how he was happy signing a home town hero to the label. He also stated that he thinks he can help the rapper reach huge levels of fame given his original talent:

“Just to be able to work with Mystical, I’ll tell him I appreciate the opportunity,” Birdman says of the union. “All he’s been through and him being from the town and what we been through together, it means a lot to me, what we’re doing, building the brand and the team. I’m super excited, the team is super excited. 2012 we’re gonna let it go, we have a lot of great music on him. I want him to be bigger than he’s ever been. I have a lot of great music on him, we know it’s a lot of work. He knows it’s a lot f work. We’re gonna go hard. It’s perfect timing for him and for us to be able to work with him,” continues Baby. “We’re just excited. I didn’t even look at the past. I didn’t think about what we went through. That shit’s so far behind us. We’re trying to provide for the team and the family. I think he’s a special talent like a Busta Rhymes or a Drake or a Wayne. He can’t be duplicated. His style is original. We gonna put out some visuals on him, his album is coming in May and we gonna roll.” (XXL)

This interview comes just after the announcement of Mystikalssigning which was just announced December 13, in which Mystikal said how the signing made him “feel like a rapper again”:

“It has been a truly long time since I have felt like a rapper and with this signing, and partnership, Birdman and Slim have given me my life as a rapper back. I am ready to go. I am going to put my red Superman drawers, cape and boots on and go! This is a huge moment for me and I am truly excited to be with Cash Money Records.”

Cashmoney has stayed busy in recent days, with the announcement of bringing hip hop heavyweight Busta Rhymes to the label as well and stressed that he likes to give his artist their independence to do their own thing:

“Whatever they bring to the table, whatever their vision is, [my role is] just to back it up and let them be the artist that they want to be and we support what they want to do,” Birdman said in an interview. “We never was [the type] to try to tell no [artist] how to do music, that’s not what we’re about. We like to let an artist be an artist and we support what they want to do.” (MTV)

D’banj and Don Jazzy Split

Mo’Hits pair D’Banj and Don Jazzy are on the brink of splitting up due to creative and personal differences. A source close to both parties has revealed that the relationship between the two is now so fractured that Don Jazzy has since moved out of the mansion they once shared in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos.

Don Jazzy, according to the source, has become so frustrated with D’banj’s lifestyle, tantrums and unmanageable ego that he refuses to work with him. D’Banj, for his part, feels Don Jazzy is spending more time honing the careers of the Mo Hits fledglings such as D’Prince and Dr. Sid. He has also accused Don Jazzy of delaying his album release by giving “excuse after excuse.”

“D’Banj has an album due this year,” the source said. “He wants Don Jazzy to spend all his time working on his own album. Can you believe that Don Jazzy spent only two days working on Wande’s new singles?”

The source added that D’banj has also made several disparaging remarks about some of the Mo’Hits crew who he calls “backup singers.” He has also made several less than complimentary comments about Don Jazzy who he accused of going around in “pyjamas and t-shirts.”

Bad blood, GOOD Music

Although tensions have simmered between the once inseperable maestros for about two years, things went quickly downhill last year following the deal signed with G.O.O.D music, Kanye West’s record label. An investigation revealed that the terms of the agreement are far more in favour of the producer, Don Jazzy, a realization which has irked the artist. The source confirmed the disparity in the deal’s structure and revealed that D’Banj’s involvement is peripheral which has led to major problems between the two. The deal also involves a financial commitment of up to $3M, which Mo’Hits has not yet fully made up.

“When we all celebrated the deal last year, little did we know that it was really Don Jazzy that was being signed up,” the source said. “While Don Jazzy has already produced a track for G.O.O.D Music, D’Banj is just waiting around idly.”

Cracks in the duo’s relationship became apparent last year when both of them arrived and sat separately to several awards ceremonies. In the past, the two had always shown a very unified stance in public.

Politically poles apart

D’Banj, real name Dapo Oyebanjo, has come under fire from fans in recent months following his perceived nonchalance to the fuel subsidy and Occupy Nigeria protests. In a recent interview, the artist dismissed the criticism, saying that he was busy shooting a new video at the time the protests broke out.

Don Jazzy, on the other hand, quickly identified with the masses by stating his displeasure with the Goodluck Jonathan administration on his Twitter page.

The news of the impending separation will come as a major shock to millions of devoted fans who have come to identify the one with the other. Any hopes of reaching reconciliation have been dashed according to the source who said that the pair can no longer work together.

“Things are so bad now that there are many shows that D’Banj does where he does not remit any money to Mo’Hits,” the   source said. “He accuses Don Jazzy of being too laid back and not attending meetings and negotiations but still feels entitled to collect fifty percent.”

The source added that Sunday Are, who used to represent the duo, now only works exclusively for Don Jazzy after D’Banj turned his back on him.

“The only people he is really close with now are Ikechukwu and Bankuli,” the source said.

It remains to be seen what the long term implications are for the Mo’Hits record label but D’Banj has wasted no time in launching his own record label which he plans to release his album on.

D’Banj, Don Jazzy, Sunday Are and Bankuli were all unavailable for comment at press time.
