No stranger to the street life, last night after a show in Williamsburg-Brooklyn Freddie Gibbs and his DJ were shot at by two unidentified gun men over 10 times. Fortunately, Gibbs wasn’t harmed and his DJ only suffered a minor leg wound.
Known to never hold his tongue, there’s a lengthy list of prospects that could have orchestrated the shooting but for now there is no further information. Whoever was behind it clearly was trying to send a message and I think it was received loud and clear.
So what did the BFK have to say about the situation? “Thug Life never die I’m Freddie Gibbs. They tried to kill me, but I’m still alive. Yep. Still Livin. Thanks NYC”. I swear Freddie is the new age Pac!
The NY Post Reports:
Two people were shot in a trendy section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, early Tuesday, in what was purportedly a rap beef.
Hip Hop musician Freddie Gibbs, who just performed at a record store called Rough Trade, claimed he was the intended target when shots were fired at 1:13 a.m. while he was sitting in a black GMC Denali at North 9th Street near Wythe Avenue.
Gibbs’ crew had barely rolled one block away when the gunman – dressed in a dark hoodie – ran up to their ride and fired several shots inside, the rapper said.
“They tried to kill Tupac. They tried to kill me,” Gibbs told The Post outside the club. “I’m still alive.”
Asked why he would be targeted, Gibbs said: “I’m Freddie Gibbs. They tried to kill me, but I’m still alive.”
…“He [the shooter] was standing around you guys all night,” an investigator told Gibbs. “He was stalking you guys. We can tell on camera, he wanted it to look like he knew you, but it’s clear he didn’t. When you guys left, he was waiting for you outside.”
Cops showed Gibbs pictures of the gunman, and another man seen inside the club with him, but the rapper didn’t recognize either man.
