During an interview with TheNeHipHop, rapper and reality star Benzino spoke in-depth on a shooting he was involved in, which took place as he was in route to his mother’s funeral procession in Duxbury, Massachusetts over the weekend.
It’s currently unclear when Benzino is expected to leave the hospital. His nephew, Gai Scott, was reportedly taken into custody and was charged with assault with intent to murder, according to 7 Newsreporter Adam Harding.
During the interview Benzino explains that
Boston’s been hard on me…It’s funny because people don’t understand really that Boston kinda suppresses Hip Hop,” Benzino said. “I mean, it really does. And it’s been doing that—I mean, we went through hell just trying to get our groups popping…There’s no real radio station up here representing Hip Hop. There’s no real clubs up here that people can go and get their stuff played. It’s just the vibe here is just, it’s just a weird vibe. And I don’t want people of Boston to get mad when I say that, but it’s not their fault. You know what I’m saying? It’s the people that run this city.
