Something smells fishy here…

Benzino’s Shooting Was Filmed For Love & Hip Hop Atlanta

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta reality star and rapper Benzino was shot three times this past weekend while en route to his mother’s funeral in Boston. As if the story couldn’t get any more bizzare, the latest rumors suggest the whole thing was filmed for the VH1 reality show.

Via All Hip Hop IllSeed reports:

Well, I am hearing that the cameras from “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” were right up in the mix. Now, I’m hearing different things. I heard they were there when the actually shooting occurred. But – more reasonably – I heard they were mostly there for the aftermath and were taping for the show. Either way, the drama is coming! Whew! Very vulture-like! Then again, Zino had a bunch of people there who were all on Instagram, posting pics.

Also, this apparently didn’t happen in Boston, where Benzino is from. This happened outside of the city, in a suburban regions. Zino got his mom out of the hood and gave her a better life I am told. So, where this shooting happened is what you call “lily white.” Now, I am getting the nephew that shot his Uncle Zino is going hell! The suburban cops are going to put him under the JAIL, I’m hearing.


Something in the water ain’t clean here! We would really hope Benzino wouldn’t have planned this shooting to drum up publicity for the show or any other attention slorin’ reasons. Stranger things have happened on reality TV…
