First off, Beanie Sigel drives a white Impala with no rims or tints? That’s gangster with an ‘a’ at the end.
SOHH just put up a piece in which an anonymous source (don’t you love those guys?) states that a shooting of Beanie Sigel in Philly at 8 in the morning is downright inconceivable, and alledges that the whole thing may have been a publicity stunt:
"Police do not believe that it was a robbery — it’s looking like a publicity stunt," the source told SOHH. "No way Beans gets robbed and only gets hit in the arm… Not in South Philly. He’s like the mayor around there. No one even heard any commotion, and believe me when I tell you South Philly blocks are small, tight and dense."
You know, my initial post about the incident from this morning is currently about 137 comments deep, and I could be wrong but I don’t think the possibility of this being a publicity stunt was raised even once. This is Beans we’re talking about for crying out loud! I also don’t know how much credence I would put in a source who uses the term "murked out" but I guess only time will tell.
Anyway, The Philadelphia Inquirer has a pic of Beans sitting in a car outside the hospital in a gown looking all gully with a blanket on his head talking to reporters.
When his car was just about to head down 34th Street, Sigel lowered his right backseat window and proclaimed "I’m shot. I got shot. I’m cool."
Moments later when the car was stopped at a red light, Sigel said to reporters, "Do you want to see it?" and pulled his hospital gown aside and showed a bandage on his left shoulder. His left arm was in a sling and his left hand was bloody.
