XXcLusive: JR Writer Details Shooting Incident

Last Saturday (October 10) Dipset rapper JR Writer was involved in a shooting that led to him getting hit in the leg. While recovering the Harlem MC spoke to XXLMag.com about the incident via email.

According to Writer, he was attacked by two men around 10 p.m unprovoked. “I was in front of the studio I been recording out of for the past three months in the Bronx, when two bum ass niggaz stepped to me and a couple of my dudes with guns,” he wrote. “For what? I still have no idea.”

Writer says that the men were not trying to steal any of his possessions. “They wasn’t trying to rob nuthin’, they looked more like they was going to kill something,” he continued. “None of us was strapped, we actually thought we was in a low spot in the BX. On top of that we been coming there for the past three months with no problems working on my album and new mixtape.”

The Diplomat almost played dead after he was shot to avoid anymore conflict. “When we saw the look on his face and heard him say ‘now what, what now’ it sounded more like a beef then anything else so we got up out of there,” he said. “That’s when he let off two shots our way, which, one of the shots hit me and I dropped. He then starting shooting at my peoples and running towards them. When I saw that I was gonna play dead but I said ‘Hell no’ and picked myself up and got across the street where my nigga Plat was running back towards my way. The shooter looks back and sees me limpin’ across the street with my nigga Plat and starts runnin’ towards us like he was going to finish me off till he heard police sirens and ran off.”

Luckily Writer is currently at home recovering. “I am doing OK now, just trying to recover,” he shared. “The doctor says I was lucky the shot didn’t hit any major artery or bones it went through the back of my thigh and exited through the front. It was a .45 so that would of really fucked me up.”

“I’m just glad to be alive, thank the lord,” he added. “Family, friends and fans have been reaching out and sending there condolences and I really appreciate that a lot. As far as any Dipset members reaching out, Hell Rell and Duke Da God reached out to make sure I was doing alright but that’s about it.”

Writer is working on his new mixtape, Cinecrack 2.0verdrive and a new untitled studio album. “I got about 80 joints done so expect to see me back in the mix ASAP
on my Tupac shit!” –Jesse Gissen

  • Fireforreal

    Mannnnnnnnn fuck this nigga. He said he’s gonna be on his Tupac shit ? Really ? that is so disrespectful when you have these talentless rappers saying there on some Pac shit. Even if he releases and records 500 songs ifthere not quality who gives a fuck ? I wish no harm on any black man but maybe he should see that his so called fuck everybody gangsta persona doesn’t pay off if your a wack rapper anyway. Come on Dip dick riders bring it on LOL

      Hahahaha! Yeah J.R. tryin’ to hard to be gangster. “On my Tupac shit”, hahahaha fuck outta here! Ever since 50 blew, mafuckers act like gettin’ shot is publicity. He talkin’ bout he just got shot, but he’s pumpin’ up his mixtape and album in the next sentence, hahahaha! “When I saw that I was gonna play dead but I said ‘hell no’”, hahahaha! He caught one leg shot, so obviously they wasn’t tryna kill him. If it was some real beef he woulda been dead.

  • http://www.myspace.com/idonthavearapname Mika

    WOULD OF ???? what kinda fuckin word is that ??

    Its ‘WOULD HAVE’ !!!

    Illiterate ass ….

    • Enlightened

      No. You’re wrong about that one. It’s the writer than transcribed what he said that messed up.

      “Would of” should have been written as “would’ve”

      Would’ve is the contraction for “would have” and is pronounced the same way as would of.

      But seriously, the criticizing niggas grammar when they are speaking in a casual conversation is a little ridiculous. Niggas are not trying to make sure they are speaking the “King’s English” in informal places. Whether they are illiterate or have a bunch of degrees.

    yall are stupid to beleive that this was a publicity stunt homie got hit with a 45. cal those guns buck he could of died by getting shot in the leg and if dude didnt want to kill him then wat was the point of shooting him and how is jr trying to hard to be gangster just because homie got shot some of yall on this site leave the wackest comments and have no idea wat yall are talking about.

  • beasy

    yo, i’m with Mag on this one. man, listen to ya’ll…i mean really step back, read your comments, and reflect on how ignorant and retarted you sound. ya’ll will never learn man. wack rapper or not…there is a life that could’ve been lost. and i’m sure you thuggish-ruggish dumb asses might have something to say in response, but think about one thing…2pac could’ve done a lot more now if he was here. half of you idolize that man because he was tough and got shot up a bunch, and not for his actual ideas and beliefs. its just sad man….

  • Mika

    allright … my bad … i see what you mean … but i was just pointing that particular word out cuz i always see it on worldstar….on comments,video titles and all …and some people might actually take these words to be right..when its not…..

    “Would’ve is the contraction for “would have” and is pronounced the same way as would of” — isnt tht what i also said ?
