E-40: “I Had Nothing to do With the Denver Shooting”

E-40 says neither him, nor his crew have a clue about the shootings from the other day:

West Coast rap star E-40 is speaking out regarding his role in a recent shooting, following a sold-out performance at a Denver, Colorado nightclub.

According to his manager, Chaz Hayes, “E-40 and his camp were uninvolved in the unfortunate incident at Club Vinyl in Denver on Dec. 27, 2008.” “Neither E40 nor anyone traveling with him was in the venue at the time. In fact, E-40 had concluded his performance and been back in the hotel room,” Hayes told AllHipHop.com via a statement as he noted the reception the rapper received from his visit.

“During his time at the venue, and in fact during the trip to Denver as a whole, he encountered nothing but love and gave nothing but love back. E-40 had a crowd pleasing and peaceful show,” Hayes said. E-40’s statement is the latest development following Saturday’s shooting, which occurred at 1:45 a.m. in front of Club Vinyl, as concertgoers were leaving the venue.

One person is currently in critical condition following the shooting, while four other people were released from the hospital after being treated for minor wounds at the Denver Health Medical Center.

At this time, police are continuing to investigate the shooting.

We’re sure glad that E-40 was far away from all of the “thuggerization.” Perhaps hyphy-ness was the sole culprit responsible for this foolishness.

    E-40, hate to burst your bubble, but you were responsible. Anytime you throw a rap party, 90% of the time, violence will ensue.

    @ Opie you need to quit it. Where did you get your figures from? You Uncle Sell-Out’s continue to speak for your masters. How many violent scenes have happened at ROCK CONCERTS? Surely you have FACTS AND FIGURES. Stop it…YOu people always want to criminalize the BLACK race meanwhile screwing your cousin and your ex-girlfriend is dead in the freezer somewhere. Stop IT!

    I was out that night and people at a club 1/2 block away were tripping too. So, it’s a good chance that what jumped off didn’t even start at the location where he was performing. Broadway was pretty rowdy that night.

    E40 introduced the ‘izzle’ to MY generation…not Snoop…

  • kenya

    okay e40 doesn’t do “izzles” in the bay we don’t say for shizzle, we say for shizzie, and e40 has that twisted fast rap on lock, he did it before bone thugs or that twista dude from chicago. and because some ignorant crack babies want to shoot up crap, doesn’t mean 40 is responsible. while their dumb butts are engaging in this stupidity, e40 will be up in the hills of Livermore chilling. and the e in e40 is not for ezekiel, but for earl.
