    Benzino Murder Attempt

    “Money, jealousy, and envy, destroy family relationships. You hear about these things, but you never think it could happen to you.”

    Benzino cites a pair of The Seven Deadly Sins — namely, GREED and ENVY — as the evil that fueled some of his own family members to turned against him… and his late mother. Zino says these are very relatives who he’s financially provided “thousands of dollars” for, yet who began to show their azz’s as his mother lay on her death bed.

    “Because of a bitter family fight over finances and the care of my deceased mother I decided not to attend the funeral. Instead, I mourned her privately earlier Saturday at the funeral home where the wake was held.”

    The rapper turned founder of ‘Source Magazine’ and ‘Hip Hop Weekly’, and VH1 reality star’s sudden decision to attend Mary Scott’s funeral after all.. led him to catch three bullets — reportedly fired by his own nephew, Gai Scott.

    “Zino opted not to specifically speak about Gai Scott saying he preferred to let law enforcement handle the matter.”

    Here’s what Benzino told The Boston Globe about the troubling incident:

    “I didn’t want to be around them. I felt like, I didn’t want any problems. I can love my mother and there doesn’t have to be no problems with family.

    I looked over, there was a car, and all I saw was a gun shooting at me. I was trying to duck and dodge, drive around it, maneuver the car. … I was bleeding a lot. I was driving with my thumb in my shoulder to try to stop the bleeding.

    After being shot in the upper arm and back I stopped the car, got out, and ran away on foot. A moment later, another relative driving in the procession stopped to pick me up then brought me to the Duxbury Police station.

    Those guys (Duxbury firefighters) were super, super nice and helpful. I was in pain, and they were trying to keep me calm.

    At the end of the day, my mom was in my corner. Who knows what would have happened if she wasn’t in my corner?”

    According to Benzino’s attorney, Martin Leppo, he’s expected to be discharged from South Shore Hospital today. This, while Gai Scott is scheduled to stand before a judge, to be formally charged with assault with intent to murder. If convicted, the 36-year-old could face up to 10-years in the tank.

    1. Family thinks that because you have millions, they are entitled to it too. Greedy nigga’s! I would give them a brown paper bag full of nothing!

    2. how does spell PUBLICITY STUNT? Benzino, you can’t rap with shit and you helped ruin the greatest HIP-hop magazine credibility when your group’s album received 41/2 mics just because you protected Dave Mays ass. I guess bogus reality shows is the only thing left for ya

      • This dirty f*cker ain’t tellin the whole story, who tries to kill their uncle, the shit reeks. I have seen plenty of family beefs over money but this shit here is next level. See this dirty f*cker told on himself when he said that he didn’t want to be around them. THIS DUDE WAS GONNA SKIP HIS OWN MOTHERS FUNERAL BECAUSE HE REST OF THE FAMILY WAS THERE. The only way that even makes sense is if he knows he did something that was so bad that it would overshadow and cause a commotion at the funeral. And that wack ass album he gave 41/2 mics to did kill the magazines credibility and then he turned around and gave an eminem album 31/2 mics because he was beefin with Eminen. I’m no fan of Eminem but he should have some integrity. There’s a lot not being told here.

        • That MadeMan Album was a f*cking Classic!DeJesus and that other nigga was spitting bars like crazy!

        • Eddie, I may be the only one who doesn’t know, but what was the genesis of Benzino’s hatred of Em? I started reading The Source after the beef was in effect, and I never got the reason behind it.

          • To be perfectly honest with you. I don’t know what the real reason was but Benzino was claiming that Em was ruining the true heritage of hip hop because he was white. Benzino felt like hip hop belonged out right to blacks and Latinos, I guess he felt like he was the gatekeeper of hip hop, anyway, that’s what he said. But he was prolly passed that eminem is white can really spit. Anyway thats what he was saying… Do you know the real reason?

            • Benzino’s disdain for Eminem was purely out of jealousy, hate and the fact he was white in a black dominated industry. Zeno upped the anti and release the tape of Eminem calling blackwomen Whores in his early days
              But,in the end Em was just to much for Zino lyrically

    3. I heard his nephew owns a high end jewelry line which leads me to believe that zino probably borrowed some ice on credit and didn’t want to pay it back.benzino look like a snake that would jip you.he probably thought his nephew wasn’t gonna pop a cap in that ass!!LMAO!! Could be wrong but street niggas read between the lines

    4. Not many has Benzino’s track record in Rap or the streets and he’s a real Biggs.I fux with Benzino and the Hangmen/MadeMen

    5. U fux with this guy. Name a couple of dope songs he made. All he does is ride his own dick all day.

      • I can’t rap for shit and I will rap circles around this wack bastard. This bastard is about as bad a rapper as Silk The shocker

        • Silk The Shocker believe it or not has sold more albums than that CO RickRoss.Let’s not forget,Silk had a couple hits and MultiPlatinum albums.

          • Internet wasn’t that big when silk was out. People brought more albums. Lot of old Skool rappers have sold more than bossy bitch.

          • BA, I say this with all respect to your opinion and comment about Benzino. To each his own, and his mademen album might have been a classic and if it was it was due to the production on it. I have been into music my entire life and I am a DJ on my side hustle and have been for about 15 years. That rock the party soung did get spins and requests for a couple of months and it did keep the crowd on the floor. I never got into Benzino because his raps never made me even think. In my opinion a classic album is more about, lyrical content style and innovation, and their lyrics never had any substance to me. Party songs about liquor, one night stands, money, hoes and clothes have been a dime a dozen the last 20 years and Rock that party was in that mold. And Silk the shocker sold the albums that he sold because of the other people on the album. Master p is smart, he maximized everything and person he had. So you must understand that Most of the No Limit albums that sold Platinum were because of two things and two things only. One was Mystikal, he had two or thre songs on every no limit album. The other was the production of beats by the pound. They had some real banging beats. But we all
            Ike what we lie and we are different so I say more power to brother if you were digging that benzino album. There are a few albums that I consider classic that the source didn’t give the mics to.

            • No sweat my brother,as a solo artist Zeno was very inconsistent. Dude asked me to name a few songs from Zeno and I was just giving him quality examples.Peace

              • I’m gonna go back and listen to the album with a less critical ear and get back to you on that one brotha.

    6. only reason benzino got recortd deals was becvause the labels wanted and needed the source rto hype their albums and promote their artists.

      business really how else could ben even get a record deal out.

      • However he got a deal is irrelevant. He got a deal. There are artists who’d chop their arms and legs off for half of the opportunities Benzino has gotten. People can drag him about his appearance, but he is a smart businessman. Dumb af when it comes to certain aspects of his business, but he changed the game via The Source.

        • Good business doesn’t equal good music. There’s gotta be a reason the family hasn’t come out in support of him. Maybe he the greedy one. Most families would of let him bury his mother in peace. Something very wrong here.

          • Nowhere did I say that good music equals good music. What is your point?

            IDK WTF you are, but you seem to like to keep my name on your keypad or have something to say when I post. Go find a hobby that excludes hopping on my clit.

              • Talking is clit riding. How many replies have you posted on here. Your not only one with things to say. I say wat I say cuz I can. If u don’t like that’s on you.

              • If I posted a billion f*cking replies on here, I’m not bringing people’s names up for no reason, unlike others here. If I have something to direct to someone, I @ them. I don’t cry to Jacky about other people’s posts not being moderated and mine being moderated or removed. So, as I said prior, keep my motherf*cking @ off of your keypad.

      • Londell McMillan acquired it. Kim Osorio sued Benzino and Dave Mays as well as The Source and was awarded a multimillion dollar judgment. Not sure if she was paid or not.

    7. Something is fishy as hell about this story,I don’t know what the real deal is but we are either getting half the story or a made up one but something just ain’t rite

      • I didn’t log in before but I’m the one who posted the comment at 18:17. I know thre is more to it. It had to be real serious because who tries to shoot his uncle at his mothered funeral. This might be a first. I can’t imagine something so bad that you will try to syick your uncle in the same hole on the same day that his mother is being buried….this is some incredible shit, and Benzino as scared. He was gonna miss his moms funeral…….just think about that for a second. His nephew probably knew that benzino will run from him til the end of his days, and the only time he would be able to get him is when he saw him. Zino was scared, an probably talked himself into going, believing that the witnesses would deter his nephew from trying to dirt hs ass. But it didn’t work.

        • You are 100% right Eddie. That’s exactly how I see it too. You don’t pass on your mom’s funeral because you are in the right and your cuz is a dick. uh uh

          • This is crazy and I don’t know if everyone read the entire article and really thought about it. Now, the entire family is going to the funeral, YOUR MOMS FUNERAL, and you are her son, but you are the one hidding out. I say again, this was HIS MOTHER. Everyone else went, but everybody else there wasn’t her son, negro you were. I’m sorry but this shit stinks and where I’m from, the only people who hide out is the GUILTY……but I’m glad that you see the same picture I see, al least I’m no he only insane one.

      • When you mention albums that are classic based on the production, that brings to mind Nas’ “Illmatic” and much of Jay-Z’s discography. I’m sure others will disagree, but folks should know I can care less. Lol

    9. I won’t listen to Almighty RSO or Made Men because they were never really my style, but I’d be lying to say I don’t have the “Booty” remix on my phone. G. Dep’s verse >>>>>>>. Benzino could’ve been left off of the track but it is his song, so…

    10. Rock Da Party and Booty were hits for Zeno as a solo artist.That Made Man album with the killer HangMen3 production was Insane.
