Dont worry 'bout Diddy, ya'll. He lost the "P." along with his violence.

If I was going to shoot someone, I would definite fire multiple rounds into the target. One shot. Missed. Why are gang members slash rappers such LOUSY shots? The guy is the size of a polar bear, you'd have to be a real palsy victim not to hit him in the torso.

they should change the "news" headline to "obvious"

In other news, submitter was found floating in Long Beach harbor for insinuating that Suge Knight has anything to do with crime.

MTV didn't have this problem back when they played lots of Huey Lewis.
 
2005-08-28 03:13:42 AM  
Hmmmm...I wonder who pissed who off this time. It doesn't seem to take much these days.

You do not shoot and disturb the sexy.

I've always said stereotypes have an element of truth in them. Sure they don't apply to 100% of people, but nothing does. As generalizations they are often accurate. Somehow you don't hear about pop stars getting in gun fights as much as hip hop stars.

Hey now, those shooters have just given dozens of fake thug rappers some street cred now.

The article doesn't mention anything about Suge Knight. Or Kurt Loder screaming like a little girl. Though I will admit that would be funny as hell (Kurt Loder screaming like a girl, that is).

"Rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight was shot in the leg today during a party hosted by Grammy-winning hip hop artist Kanye West, police said."

The_Bob_Talbot: farkING attractive and successful African-AmericanS

For somebody who lives in Jonesboro, Arkansas, seems like you shouldn't really be criticizing others about shootings. I mean fark, even your grade-schoolers are popping each other like it was open season on little kids.

Good thing that MTV was there for the coverage of this breaking news story. Granted they did cut over to their VJ's and then 20 minutes of commercials while it was happening...
 
2005-08-28 03:20:11 AM  
Kurt Loder is still alive?
 
2005-08-28 03:20:47 AM  
Kelquin, thanks for explaining that half of the headline to me. Now if I could just figure out who the fark Kurt Loder is...
 
2005-08-28 03:21:01 AM  
It was really bound to happen really soon

/shocked it doesn't happen more often

did ashlee simpson bear the brunt of it? if not, did the dude from coldplay?
 
2005-08-28 03:21:39 AM  
That's the best thing about the rap industry...it's like a self-cleaning oven.

/Somebody said that but I can't remember who.

That's how he rolls...bustin' caps in dat ass...or something.
 
2005-08-28 03:22:01 AM  
Kurt Loder was farking old when he covered Guns N' Roses 3/4th albums.

Kanye West upset he only won three Grammys out of 10, unaware that people whose music sucks as bad as his aren't really supposed to win any
Flame war gold, and my first infinity greenlight :D

In other news, Suge Knight is still alive, unfortunately.

If you wonder if it's worth paying 5 dollars a month, that's the answer!

Is he dead? If there was ever a scummier figure in the music world I wouldn't know who it would be.

Well, Michael Jackson, so maybe second scum...Oh wait, I forgot about Phil Spector. And Courtney Love. And Ted Nugent.

Ok, he's at least in the top ten.
 
2005-08-28 03:23:03 AM  
Does this mean he will win every Grammy nomination and MTV music award for the next couple years? Or do you actually have to die for that?
 
2005-08-28 03:23:33 AM  
...Patiently awaits the unmoderated racist comments always found on fark... oops, too late, The_Bob_Talbot already started the slinging

No problem. :) As for Kurt Loder, he's a 'veteran' MTV News reporter. And veteran in that he's been on it since the late... eighties I think and he was born in 1945.

Won't this give Puff Diddy Daddy another hit? He is famous for singing about his friends who've been shot.

/don't care in the least
 
2005-08-28 03:24:07 AM  
I'm going to recommend we start a 24-hour prayer vigil for Omarion. He might have actually been invited and thought about coming, and stuff.
 
2005-08-28 03:24:09 AM  
Suge Knight has shot like 100 people, and now its a news story when he takes one in that big gravy filled turkey leg attached to his blobular frame.

Hunting bears is illegal yes, but he probably couldve just caught the bullet in those oven mits for hands and not even broken a sweat.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Rap mogul Marion Suge Knight was shot in the leg early Sunday during a party hosted by Grammy-winning hip hop artist Kanye West, police said.

Knight, 40, was hospitalized in good condition, police said. He was shot during a celebrity-studded party at the Shore Club, one of the many celebrations in Miami Beach ahead of the MTV Video Music Awards scheduled Sunday night, said Miami Beach Police Officer Bobby Hernandez.

Sonja Mauro, a guest at the club, said a shot in the partys VIP section rang out shortly before 1 a.m.

I was in there and I heard a pop and I ran out and got trampled, she said.

People attending the party began screaming and running for the doors, she said.

Knight co-founded the pioneering rap label Death Row Records and hit the charts in the 1990s with West Coast stars including Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur.

The label struggled when Knight was sent to prison for assault and weapons violations. He was released in 2001, then served 10 more months for violating parole and striking a Hollywood nightclub valet. Relatives of slain rapper Notorious B.I.G. have also accused him of involvement in his death, though police have never named Knight as a suspect.

Knight continues to operate his label, now called Tha Row.

It was their own fault. The party gift bags they were giving out to the celebrities contained a free iPod and a 20mm fully loaded gun.


It's not the fact that there are a lot of shootings at rap - linked events, but the fact that (like in the bad neighborhood I moved from) they always shoot and seem to miss their targets.


Personally, I wouldn't have moved from my neighborhood, if I was confident the kids could handle a gun properly, and hit who they were trying to. But with me staying out late/ working late, was not gonna risk walking into a firefight.

Submitter deserved to be shot in the leg for linking to the one article that DOESN'T mention Suge Knight, even though he clearly read an article that did, considering his choice of headline.

Maybe because the sort of people that are most heavily promoted/encouraged in the rap world are thugs. So it shouldn't surprise anyone when these guys don't play so nice, because some of them are actual criminals. It's like asking why so many female popstars are attractive. Because that's what sells in that genre, same way a tough image and "street cred" sell records for hip hop artists. So don't think just because rappers are always shooting/stabbing each other, that it's indicative of how all black people behave, or that it somehow lends credence to any stereotype about black people in general. Because if it did, then all those black jazz/R&B/gospel singers would be shooting each other just as frequently.

His cred will be way up in pre-morning trading.

/got nothing
/don't care.
 
2005-08-28 03:28:58 AM  
Or maybe he actually saw the live coverage on MTV, gweilo. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.
 
2005-08-28 03:29:03 AM  
20mm gun?
Holy cow.
 
2005-08-28 03:29:23 AM  
BOOM! HEADSHOT!

errr.... legshot?

Suge Knight would be a real loss to the music world.
Sure thing.

"Kurt Loder too busy screaming like a woman to figure out Suge Knight got shot"

That was because he thought an actual girl, touched his pee pee.

How come rappers always have their "mad face" on?
It's hilarious.

Has anyone ever seen LL Cool J smile?
the closest I've ever seen, was a look resembling a perplexed King Kong, looking through Fay Wray's window.

Unfortunatly, he isn't...

Well, Michael Jackson, so maybe second scum...Oh wait, I forgot about Phil Spector. And Courtney Love. And Ted Nugent.

Michael Jackson, he's up there... although, well, like OJ, he's.. not guilty, right?

Phil Spector... he ain't as bas as Suge... and not guilty of murder, right?

Courtney Love, well she might or might not have a hand in the death of Kurt Cobain (if she didn't put a contract on his head, she surely helped him kill himself by being, well, Courtney Love). Because of Cobain's death, a third-grade grunge act became a legend.That would put her number 1 in my book, stop it with the overrated rubbish already

Don't even need to comment on Ted.


I think Suge would most likely be number two, with a first position to Courtney Love, third to Michael Jackson and fourth to Sharon Osbourne

Ok, he's at least in the top ten.

Top 5, even
 
2005-08-28 03:31:24 AM  
Moral of the story is don't go a blastin if ya been a drinking cause you won't be a killin' the guy that causes horrible music to be produced. Guy is a criminal, should be killed for the good of society.
 
2005-08-28 03:31:59 AM  
Omarion would like his fans to pray that he has a safe trip and a safe return home....

He wasn't hurt or anything, but just the fact that he has been on MTV and all that.

ekdikeo4: Care to explain how Uncle Ted qualifies as scum?

Well, in addition to being a general pr*ck, the whole "become the legal guardiwn of a 17 year old girl to have sex with her" thing is pretty damn scummy.
 
2005-08-28 03:32:40 AM  
I thought that getting shot is some kind of mandatory initiation ceremony for rappers.
 
2005-08-28 03:33:14 AM  
Who?

Oh thats right, MTV, meaning that nobody cares.
