    Now this sounds different that what was first reported. First they (allhiphop) said a nigga just walked up on him and shot him in the thigh. I was saying that’s a publicity stunt – like who walks up on a nigga and just shoots him in the thigh.
    Now, this sounds more realistic. But you never know these days I guess.

    BLACK ON BLACK VIOLENCE MUST STOP!
    What does it say about today’s society that young black men are killing fellow blacks males at such an alarming rate it far exceeds the most violent days of the klan.
    Ministers need to get out of their studies, bit the street corners and rescue our urban black youth.
    In my day, our parents brought us to church – at least one day a week – even if we did not want to go.
    Thankfully, the teachings of the rhuch have a way of seeping into even the hardest of hearts.
    We can blame the failure of the father, or many other root causes like drugs, but today’s clergy need to get up out of the comfort of their churches and hit the streets.
    If you rescue one youth at a time, before you know it , 100 children have been rescued, then 1,000, and so on.
    Parents – especially the mothers who care – need to bring God back into the lives of our children.
    My message to today’s youth is: PLEASE CARE ABOUT YOUR FELLOW TEEN – Everybody is important especially you.

    i hope fabolous dies bitch ass nigga. he is a wack ass rapper. jibbs is better than him. fabolous should just die and end his pathetic miserable life. he is a fuckin faggot.

  • jon-jon 23

    They were probably too concerned about finding drugs on him and didn’t even care that he was shot. It’s incredible how these police “serve and protect”.

  • Harlem G

    i guess Fab will consider himself to be “harder” now, might make for a better album! lol :-)

  • iame247

    I dont think anyone will stage a shooting for publicity. I bet you the hip hop cops are behind this. They could have set that shit up. Police stage shit all the time. Remember training day, when they hit that dudes stash in the floor. I dont know if yall seen The Departed yet, but there was some crazy set up shit on that movie.

    That story is missing something.

    If this guy was waiting for Fabolous, and he walked up on him, the hiphop cops were probably following Fabolous already. They should have been on his ass as soon as he pulled out his gun.

    They pulled the car over, instead of chasing the guy who WAS SHOOTING IN A PUBLIC AREA in front of Justins in Chelsea/Manhattan? I know Diddy aint open a restuarant in the hood, so this has to be a upper class neighborhood.

    Then instead of tending to a shooting victim, they search the car fot weapons. See how them cops is? Man, they trying to take these young rich niggas out.
    The Hip Hop community is gaining to much power so now they want to lock us up. Then I find it funny that Jadakiss is always getting caught on gun charges. That shit looks suspect to me.

  • Three4

    Who´s next?…this shit gotta stop!

  • Godson12

    Rappers need to learn to distance themselves from those that aren’t rich. Once you get more money you are a target period. And one last thing when you are a rapper, once you leave the hood, you are gone for good, why get out just to go back to the same bullshit. Nothing wrong with helping the hood though. Oh yeah, word to Fab, stay up son.

  • Million$MotivatedMailiciousMonarchMoneyMakin’Marc. O!

    ^^^^^^^ A nigga that got something to prove to a new label he on. You think LA Reid give a fuck about what #s Fab did for Craig Kallman at Atlantic(nigga didn’t even do plat last time out, not his fault though, his label always pick the wrong 2nd single(see Holla Back Young’n, Baby, and they completely missed the boat on that banger he had wit’ Jeezy before niggas knew who he was…)?! Fuuuuck naw!!! Fab my nigga too but get off a nigga dick for a minute and step back from the situation and look at it for what it really is….We never heard of this nigga bustin’ a grape and now before his album is gon’ drop he gets shot…in the thigh . I’m tired of niggas gettin’ shot in the ass(Gravy), ankle or leg(Game homeboy), thigh(Fab), etc. Anybody notice how niggas ain’t gettin’ hit in any vital organs??? What, niggas don’t aim for the head or heart no more?! I’m mean that’s fucked up what happened to dude, but the timing too perfect for me…

  • Anal Jeff

    i hate niggers is because they smell, have nappy hair with bugs in them, live in the projects on taxpayers money, they drag their knuckles like monkeys (because they are) as they walk in front of my car crossing the street to go fucking nowhere ,they don’t speak English (or any language for that matter) they think there “tough” because they can rhyme to music like my 2yr old kid, they breed like fucking animals (monkeys to be exact), they live in their own filth (like monkeys), they live in projects and drive 40,000$ cars, they let their kids roam the streets like rats, they cant read or write, they steal, they lie, they prejudge against their own race(who can blame them),they want handouts instead of working for something,they worship entertainment figures, they eat all the chicken and watermelon at cookouts, their women think the fatter and more obnoxious they are the more beautiful they look, and the men wear clothes that are too big and are fashioned for teens, all their mothers look like aunt Jamima, their dads look like…….

  • Anal Jeff

    I’m sick of working with these monkeys every day with their disgusting monkey manners…….I mean, come on now! Learn how to carry on a conversation with a decent white person with some damn tact! Oh, or do you even know what ‘tact’ means?! It means “Acute sensitivity to what is proper and appropriate in dealing with others, including the ability to speak or act without offending.” OOps! Too many big words for you?!

    HOnestly, though, I was getting over my hate for black people until I began working with them every day! They’re constantly going around bitching about everything, calling in sick when they’re obviously not, being rude to decent white people for NO FUCKING REASON! I mean literally- for no reason at all! What is it? Jealousy? Well, that’s understandable. I’d be jealous, too. We are better-looking and smarter. We are not in the fucking ghetto, though, so learn some respect and social skills when you’re out in the real working world with decent white people, monkeys!!!!!! We don’t have time to figure out your ghetto slang and animal-like reactions to situations! When you’re working with someone who is nice to you, maybe you should use common everyday manners like…..hmmmm…maybe “be nice back?!” Is that so hard? If you want us to treat you like human beings, ACT LIKE HUMAN BEINGS! I’m getting sick of going out of my way to avoid hurting some rude black bitch’s feelings when I know the bitch doesn’t give a damn when she offends me. I don’t care anymore. Fuck all of you!

    yo anal jeff is a dickhead! simple as, not every white person is like him and not every black person is as he describe them but he is a straight racist bitch. fact of the matter is america would not be anything if it wasn’t for the black african people taken into slavery who made your punk ass parents, grand parents and great grand parents world go around while they sit on they lazy asses. do you wonder why people in the projects are poor cus they havent any money ass wipe! think about it as for the ignorant people you encounter thats their bad behaviour that you have been unfortunate to be a victim of not the rest of the black community in america or the around the world. people like you are whats wrong with the world, of all places to make such a racist comment you make it on a hip hop magazine website you prick! and if you are a hip hop lover which i doubt incredibly i think it would be an oppourtune time for you to get over your racial issues against my people or if not i think that country music is mainly dominated by white folk! maybe thats more up your street.

  • FaceTheTruth

    first and foremost let me address the discussion at hand……Fab to me is not the greatest rapper but no man shouild have to face looking down in the barrell of gun, and if you have ever had such an experience not one of you tough talk punk mutha freakin bitch ass niggas would be saying half the remarks that have been proclaimed, wishing such malice upon another human being. I am absolutley SICK of people as a whole, everyone is sooooo freaking ignorant. Especially my Black people, and even more so those that fall under the category of the Nigga. A Nigga is the derogitory term for one who is IGNANT. Ignorance is the lack knowledge (to those that feel offended by the word), knowledge is power, power is respect so pick up a book or two and learn to express yourselves with just a little more “POWER”. Its unfortunate that power is looked at in the one that posses a gun, or the longest money stack. If you read an amendment or two you would know that you CAN have the power of a gun in hand and gain a legal buck or two instead of hating on the next one. The unfortunate circumstances of events that happen to anyone in this world should slap some reality into the lives of those who walk on God’s green earth from this modern day Babylon. Instead we walk around, above and beyond the HIGH AND MIGHTY like we are “the high and mighty”. People act like getting robbed, shot, stabbed, isnt an everyday occurance and an impossible feat that could happen to them when the chances are just as likely to occur like the fact of you waking up the next day.
