Benzino

I Don't Know Why I Got Shot

... But I DO Have Issues with My Nephew

3/31/2014 1:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Benzino Shot By Nephew"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Benzino says he has no idea why his nephew shot him ... even though it's very clear the beef between them is strong.

Benzino called into "TMZ Live" to tell us what he claims led up to Saturday's shooting during his mother's funeral procession -- and his explanation was, as they say ... tricky. 

The rapper -- and former owner of The Source magazine -- says 7-8 shots were fired and he was hit twice. 

We asked if it had anything to do with money issues around his mom's house -- and Benzino more than hints there's some bad blood.

The shooter, Gai Scott, was in court today -- and said he was acting in self-defense.

to happen to somebody else and not your family?

Never heard of this show. I guess it's another "reality" show. I guess shooting Mr. Uncle is pretty real.

It doesn't matter why because their is no good reason. This is not how civilized human beings solve problems. I still can't believe it was during the GrandMothers funeral, disgraceful, disrespectful and disgusting. Grow up.
