Various stories are flooding the web, claiming that Nipsey Hu$$le was involved in a shoot-out over the weekend. An incident involving Nipsey and former manager, Eugene “Big U” Henley, took place on Friday when the two came to a standstill at a gas station near the intersection of Crenshaw and Slauson in Compton. AllHipHop reports that a heated argument between the former business partners quickly turned into physical brawl. Nipsey’s brother, Samiel Asghedom, reportedly fired shots in the air after the altercation escalated, prompting police to show up and begin firing shots at the rapper’s brother, all of which missed. Following the encounter, cops apprehended all three men. Conflicting sources dispelled reports that Nipsey nor Henley were involved in any brawl.
Although initial reports suggested that no one was formally charged with a crime stemming from the incident, XXL now reports that they spoke with a rep from the LAPD who confirmed that Nipsey’s brother, Samiel, is in police custody and being held on $100,000 bail.
Nipsey provided this cryptic message via Twitter, but has yet to elaborate on the situation
