Rapper Webbie

I'm Not a Murderer!

1/23/2012 4:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Webbie -- I am Not a Murderer!
Rapper Webbie is adamant ... he had nothing to do with an Alabama nightclub shooting that left one man dead -- telling TMZ, he was just there to perform ... and that's what he did.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, cops rushed to Webbie's show at Primetime nightclub in Dothan around 3am Sunday -- responding to a call of shots fired. When they arrived, they discovered a man lying face down on the pavement outside the club with a gunshot wound to the chest. He died later at the hospital.

Webbie -- real name Webster Gradney -- was taken in for questioning following the incident, and there were Internet reports he was being investigated for murder. Webbie insists that's not true.

Webbie's manager tells us, the rapper was questioned simply because the shooting occurred at his concert -- and police thought he might have some info about what went down.

But according to law enforcement sources, Webbie didn't know jack ...so they let him go -- no arrest, no charges filed.

Nothing like going to a hip hop concert just to get killed. Black people need to learn to tone it down.

Does TMZ get paid for putting posts about these unknown rappers on your web site? I'm not joking, do you?

You ppl clearly know nothing about rap. What have you been living under a rock? Everyone who listens to rap knows who Webbie is as an artist. Try commenting on someting you know about. @NobodySpecial and haskel420 it's not a black and white thing. All people are ignorant! You two are perfect examples. Thanks for the laughs! #FREEBOOSIE

He looks like a clown, and considering NO ONE knows who he is, this is FREE publicity for him.

ArtOfWar - That is truly the most moronic statement I've read for quite a while on this site, and this site has some real pea brains who comment.
I'm sorry I can't relate to your dopey looking rap icon - and no, I'm not going to smoke on it, I let you suck on it instead.

I'm not mad at ppl for not being a Webbie fan. I'm not a huge fan. What kills me is that ppl read this article and started to talk about black ppl. STFU! All black ppl are not the same. I listen to EVERYTHING from Alanis Morissette, Portishead, to Gucci.
