Detroit police said a well-known rapper and his friend were shot outside of a Detroit nightclub early Monday morning. The two men were shot outside Esko Lounge On Michigan Avenue near Shelby Street around 1:15 a.m. Police identified one of the victims as Christian Mathis, who is better known as Trick-Trick, which is his stage name. The men got into a fight with rapper Jim Jones and shots were fired, said police. Local 4 confirmed Mathis was taken to the emergency room at Detroit Receiving Hospital. He is in serious condition. The other man’s condition is unknown. Police are looking for the gunman.
The rapper went on a popular radio show Monday morning and told them he had not been shot. However, the Detroit police and hospital representatives have confirmed Mathis was shot. Mathis told WKQI-FM (95.5) on Monday that he was at home “restin'” and chillin'” at the time of the shooting. He told the radio show that he received a concerned phone call from his mother after she saw a report of the television that he had been shot. He told “Mojo in the Morning” “I ain’t left this house since Saturday.”
Mathis is best known for his work with Eminem on his single “Welcome 2 Detroit.” His latest album, “The Villain” was released in November and features artist from Kid Rock to Ice Cube and more. Last year, Mathis was reportedly involved in the alleged beating of Chicago rapper Yung Berg at a Detroit club. A photo of his younger brother holding Yung Berg’s signature necklace later surfaced on the Internet.
This is the same thug that punked Yung Turd for his transformer chain. Well it looks like Trick-Trick may have found the beef he was looking for, oh yeah, and Jimmie too.
