Hot 97’s Landlord Begins Eviction Process After Gravy Shooting
After Brooklyn rapper Gravy was shot in the buttocks in front of New York radio station Hot 97 on Wednesday (April 26), the building’s landlord has begun the process to evict the radio station’s studios. “We’ve directed our attorneys to begin the eviction process,” Stuart GraBois of The New York City District Council of Carpenters told the New York Daily News. “We’re concerned about the safety of the public and of our other tenants.” The Gravy shooting marks the third time shots have rang out just outside the studio, after a 2001 shootout between crews associated with Lil’ Kim and Capone-N-Noreaga brought headlines, and a 2005 shooting was tied to associates of 50 Cent and The Game. The station is required to notify police of guests four days in advance.
