DJ Wounded After Shooting At Rick Ross & Diddy Album Release Party In Atlanta

atl shooting

Diddy has now witnessed/had his name attached to two shootings in two nights.


After experiencing violence at his CIAA party on Saturday night/Sunday morning in Charlotte, Diddy along with Rick Ross ran into bad luck the very next night, this time in Atlanta.

The incident took place at the Velvet Room club, a popular nightclub located in Chamblee Tucker Road in DeKalb County, Georgia which was hosting the album release party for Rick Ross’ Mastermind (album is out a day early today). The DJ at the club got into an altercation with another person at back of the club and shots were fired. That’s when uniformed, off duty Police officers responded and went after the DJ. They identified themselves to him but according to the Police, that’s when the DJ started shooting back at the Police officers.

DeKalb Public Safety Director Cedric Alexander said “one subject turned toward them, firing shots. They returned fire, hitting the subject in the leg.” The wounded DJ then got up and went back inside the club, where he was arrested and shifted to Grady Memorial Hospital.

The DJ’s name has not been released and Alexander claimed that there was “no reason to believe” that any of the celebrities at the club for the album release party were involved in the shooting.

    Damn, I ain’t the biggest fan of him but I fuck w/ Diddy enough to hope this shit stops because he’s a strong face for Hip-Hop and this type of shit can hurt his brand/businesses if it happens to often.

    off topic: it’s crazy how a few commenters and twitter MFs say HHNM hates on Ross because they see HHNM refuses to discount what 50 (or any artist) does and did but they won’t count the fact yall plugged the nigga Ross’ album date being pushed up in a post that has nothing to do with that (it happen at a release party but release parties were gonna happen this Fri-Sun regardless of if the release was released early this week or not). That’s just words from a fan of unbiased hip hop coverage. Yall don’t discredit what anybody does but because the biggest bad guy ever in Rap got turned on and ya’ll didn’t turn on em too yall get a little hate for it. Lol, crazy.
