I never heard of this guy before. Did I miss something? Didn’t think so.

And why is this story listed as "local news" in Los Angeles, if the shooting was committed in Plymouth, MA, and the vic was from Atlanta?

By the way, my title ripped off Brenda Walker.

Thanks to RC for this article.

Rapper, Reality TV Star Shot During His Mother’s Funeral

[Fake "view comments" that leads nowhere.]

PLYMOUTH, MASSACHUSETTS ( — A reality TV star and rapper is recovering after being shot during his mother’s funeral procession.

Officials said Benzino, star of VH-1′s “Love & Hip Hop In Atlanta,” was in Plymouth, Massachusetts Saturday morning to attend his mother’s funeral.

The 48-year-old rapper — who is also a media executive and record producer — was hit in the arm. Authorities said the shooter was his nephew.

The rapper’s real name is Raymond Scott. His mother died on March 20.

Scott’s last Twitter post was made on March 19. [Why is this relevant?]

Police said Scott and his nephew have been feuding for some time. The nephew is in custody.

There was blood on Scott’s mother’s hearse when it arrived at the church. Family members continued with the funeral while Scott was rushed to a hospital.

He is reportedly in stable condition.

Raymond really looks whitey. Sure has a lot of admixture.

A lot of these funeral homes in Chicago now refuse to have the funeral of gang bangers and rappers and such. Too much danger of a shoot out.

These funeral processions [the cortege they call it] can be miles long some time with gangbangers and rappers hanging out the winders of the car yelling at bystanders. Dangerous too.
