Source Founder Benzino Shot While Attending Mother's Funeral
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.30.2014



Benzino is in critical condition after being shot while he was attending his mother's funeral. WHDH reports that the rapper and founder of landmark hip-hop magazine The Source was shot when his nephew Gai Scott allegedly pulled his Bentley up to Benzino's Dodge SUV and fired multiple shots into the vehicle.

Benzino is being held at a hospital with his family and friends keeping vigil. Scott has been charged with armed assault and attempted murder; he will be arraigned tomorrow.

Benzino founded the Source, which became one of the most influential journalism sources in the genre, in 1988. He notably had a series of disputes in the mid-00s that led to his departure from the magazine, including a well-publicized one with Eminem. He has released four solo LPs.

On behalf of 411, our best wishes for Benzino and his family and friends.
