Prince Kibbie, pictured above in dreadlocks with a finger being pointed directly down at him, has reportedly been shot. It is likely one other person was shot as part of the same incident. JNS blog is seeking more details but this blog posting will describe what I've got so far.
Kibbie was part of a well-publicized musical controversy swirling around a rap album called Da Movement, which included songs celebrating the shooting death of 19 Dipset gang member Tyrone "Ty Crack" Washington at Epic Nightclub...
I first heard of the shooting in the form of an anonymous comment submitted on a current story, as follows:
PRINCE KIBBIE HAS BEEN SHOT just wanted to b the first to tell u haaaaaaaa 1-9 RIP CRACK U ain't gone b the only one wit a head stone my nigga
This blogger looked at the profile of Prince Kibbie but didn't see any commentary. So I looked at the friends of Prince Kibbie and found the following posting on the Facebook page of Ebony Shawta:
worst night ever see y'all laying there changed me so much Prince Kibbie is a very strong person and he's gonna be okay ... Keep praying for Solidfoe Lovehis Squad last thing he was saying is he gone be okay , so he gone be okay too . These guys are so strong and blessed . They gone be okay .. Love y'all !
"Solidfoe Lovehis Squad" originally started a Facebook profile under the name Cortez Blakemore. He hails from Chicago and lists himself as still being a resident of that city. He has images on his Facebook profile from Top Dolla Entertainment, a musical entity whose name frequently appears on the Facebook pages of those associated with the "anti-Ty Crack" side of this controversy.
"Solidfoe" is apparently the individual to the left in this photo:
JNS blog only has the anonymous comment and the Facebook commentary to confirm the reality of this shooting, however, it was expected and inevitable that somebody would be shot over this musical controversy. The only questions were who, when, and how severely.
More details will be provided as I have them. JNS urges calm on both sides and mediation by respected members of the community to prevent further bloodshed.
