CTE Rapper B.A.M.A Released From Hospital After Stabbing Incident
After being admitted into the Grady Memorial Hospital yesterday (June 18) for a stab wound to his face during a party for DJ Trauma, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution has learned that CTE rapper B.A.M.A. has been released.
As XXLMag.com previously reported the recent CTE signee was involved in a fight early Thursday morning, along with nine other men in he VIP section at the Luckie Food Lounge in downtown Atlanta. So far he has been the only man identified in the fight, with another unknown victim also ending up in the hospital.
As of yesterday no one has been charged in the incident. It is rumored that the fight was between the long feuding camps of Young Jeezy and DJ Drama, yet when reached DJ Drama declined to comment.
Trauma’s party, which was celebrating his 10-year anniversary on Atlanta radio station HOT 107.9, was a star-studded event featuring a long list of hip-hop heavyweights like Young Jeezy, Drama, Ludacris and Jermaine Dupri, among others. While he did not witness the fight, Trauma told XXL that he’s not worried about violence marring tomorrow’s 14th annual Hot 107.9 Birthday Bash.
“I don’t think [anything is gonna happen],” he said. “I know at our Summer Jam, the way they do it, they space them out. They was like that last year. They both performed last year. And they both were on fire – even more so. They signed contracts and everything. I know they had stipulations and they had meetings about it. They space them about two hours apart. One crew comes, they do their press, do their show and then they leave. The next crew comes do their show and leave. They’re never in the same spot. We never have any incidents. Last year T.I. and Shawty Lo had beef and Gucci and Jeezy had beef. There was beef all around last year and we had no problems. [So] I think it’s gonna run smooth.“
