Have Gun, Will Unravel
As Lil' Kim's perjury trial gets underway––she’s been charged with lying to a grand jury about her relationship with her former bodyguard, who fired 20 shots at a rival entourage outside HOT 97––another bit of gunplay took place just last night outside the very same radio station. This time, human target range cutout 50 Cent was involved, having made a few on-air comments about dumping some other bullet-friendly rapper from the G-Unit crew. While the Times does a sound job of detailing the 5 Ws, including the identity of the poor dumb bastard who got himself kneecapped, the best take we’ve seen thus far has come from these snarky gits: SHOT 97 … "Is it Radio Hellmouth or something?"
Not at all sure about the logic behind conflating one's press kit with one's day-to-day life, although now that we think about it, getting aerated certainly gave Tupac's career a shot in the arm, head, leg, chest, etc. Cat's more prolific than Updike.
