Brooklyn Rapper Gravy “Treached” Outside Hot97

Brooklyn rapper Gravy who, unless you live in NY or are a SMACK DVD aficionado, you’ve probably never heard of, was "Treached" (my Urban Dictionary entry is pending) last night outside the Hot 97 building. From the reports I’m reading about the incident, his fat ass kept it extra gully and still went upstairs to go through with his interview:

The 28-year-old MC (born Jamal Wollar) was struck by a single bullet as he got to the station around 9:30 p.m. Word is Gravy went to the station with an entourage of approximately 30 people sporting T-shirts with his moniker on it.

According to sources, while people began scattering upon shots being fired, Gravy kept his cool and walked upstairs to conduct his interview as scheduled.

Cops later sealed off the station, looking for victims. After finding Gravy hobbling inside the station, authorities asked the rapper what happened. Sources say he told cops he had fallen. Cops then noticed blood and Gravy was taken to St.VincentsHospital in stable condition.

Man, I went to sleep last night after posting the Snoop arrest story thinking I had the jump on today’s news cycle, and then I wake up and see this. Let this be a lesson to any of you kids thinking about getting into the hip hop blogging business, you have to stay on your grizzly, because you never know when a C-List rapper can wind up shot in the ass.

    […] The planned Notorious B.I.G. biopic Notorious has found its star after an open call audition. Brooklyn-based rapper Jamal Woolard, who performs under the nom de MC Gravy, has been cast to star as the B.I.G., beating out more than a hundred other Biggies who tried out for the part. Like the man he will be playing, Woolard segued from his job as a drug dealer into that of a rapper. Gravy also earned instant street cred two years ago, when he was shot in the buttocks before a radio appearance outside NY hip-hop station Hot 97’s studios, and then proceeded to brush off his wound and go inside for his interview. Gravy joins a cast that includes Derek Luke (who will play Sean “Diddy” Combs), Anthony Mackie (as Tupac Shakur) and Angela Bassett in the role of Biggie’s mother Violetta Wallace. In casting Jamal to play her son, Wallace said, “He is a talented and charismatic actor, and I am excited that he will bring Christopher’s character to life” and that Gravy’s “charming personality, warm spirit, wonderful sense of humor and beautiful smile” captured the essence of B.I.G. The film, which will be directed by George Tillman Jr. (Men of Honor, Soul Food), is due out January 2009. […]

The blog also promoted Woolard’s photo in character as B.I.G. (pictured above). Just last year, Woolard was shot outside of New York’s Hot 97, and his music was later banned from the station by Funkmaster Flex. […]

  8. Jamal “Gravy” Woolard, who made headlines … [Casting Couch] | weeklyexaminer.com Says:

    […] Jamal “Gravy” Woolard, who made headlines in the spring of 2006 when he was shot in the butt outside the Hot 97 building, has been tapped to play the Notorious B.I.G. in Notorious, the Biggie Smalls biopic scheduled to hit theaters in 2009; the movie will also feature Angela Bassett as Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace. According to Nah Right, Gravy has been at the front of the casting line since the Hot 97 incident, so all those open casting calls that even got the New York Times interested may have been nothing more than publicity stunts to drum up excitement about the movie.
