First 50 Cent gets shot nine times, now it has come out that Murder Inc. associates and The Gotti brothers (Irv and Chris) were trying to have him killed in 2003. And no, this isn't a rumor, this is official, Court papers and everything.
The most eye-opening is that Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, a convicted drug dealer and longtime friend of Irv and Chris Gotti, had been keeping tabs on 50 Cent's whereabouts and plotting to kill him.
"The investigation has uncovered a conspiracy involving McGriff and others to murder a rap artist who has released songs containing lyrics regarding McGriff's criminal activities," the affidavit reads. "The rap artist was shot in 2000, survived and thereafter refused to cooperate with the law enforcement regarding the shooting. Messages transmitted over the Murder Inc. pager indicate that McGriff is involved in an ongoing plot to kill this rap artist and that he communicates with Murder Inc. employees concerning the target."
The document references specific two-way pages between McGriff and members of the Inc., including Chris Gotti. It also says when law-enforcement agents questioned 50 in 2002, he told them that he keeps a considerable amount of security around because he fears for his safety.I know Fat Joe likes to make jokes about 50 Cent and his security or whatever, but 50 Cent would be a fool to NOT have security with him at all times. I mean, Fat Joe, there isn't anybody trying to kill you, so you're cool without security. But 50 Cent has an excuse...
