DISCLAIMER: I DON BLEEK WILL LIKE TO SAY THAT I HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE WRITING OR EDITING OF THE STORY BELOW. PLEASE DO NOT E-MAIL ME ABOUT THIS STORY BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION BESIDES WHAT’S POSTED. I GOT THIS STORY FROM THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS.
MY DEEPEST PRAYERS AND CONDOLENCES GOES OUT TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF G-BABY. GOD BLESS THE FAMILY.
Police are investigating a possible link between hip-hop star Fabolous and the murder of an upstart rapper near a Queens nightclub, the Daily News has learned.
NYPD detectives aren’t sure what role, if any, the Brooklyn rapper might have played in the March killing, but a surveillance video shows Fabolous leaving Club Amazura seconds before a mystery gunman blasted Greg (G-Baby) Brown in the back.
“[Fabolous] is about to get in the car as the shooting goes down,” said a police source who watched the video.
Police and G-Baby’s relatives say the rappers – both from Bedford-Stuyvesant – had a longstanding beef, though a source said they’d put it behind them.
“My son was going to talk to Fab in a car, and he got shot three times,” grieving mother Roxanne Brown said. “I don’t know what’s going on. I just want to know who killed my son.”
Homicide investigators have yet to interview Fabolous, whose real name is John Jackson, and won’t until they get more information on his possible connection to the slaying. Police haven’t made an arrest in the March 13 shooting, and Fabolous hasn’t been named as a suspect.
Fabolous’ spokeswoman, Tammy Brook, declined comment. His lawyer, Alberto Ebanks, didn’t return calls.
G-Baby, 22, was a protégé of rapper Memphis Bleek, a Brooklyn artist who rose to stardom in the 1990s. Memphis Bleek signed G-Baby to his record label, Get Low Records. G-Baby used his ties to Memphis Bleek to schmooze with the likes of Spike Lee and Jay-Z.
