Former G-Unit member
Bang ‘Em Smurf is behind bars, jailed on charges from the incident that
he claims sparked his feud with 50 Cent.
Smurf is serving
a 3 ½ year term due to gun charges that stemmed from a neighborhood beef
that resulted in a shootout.
“I was in
my hood one day – that’s when 50 had kicked us off the road [from touring],”
Smurf revealed to AllHipHop.com. “That’s when I first started working
with Domination. I had a mixtape with Domination, and I’m on the block and my
homie got a situation, and this dude he had a problem with knocked him out.
Laid him flat out in front of me, and that’s my dude. So we did what we did.
Dudes we got in the conflict with kept it gutter. They got hit up, they didn’t
say nothing – they didn’t go to no hospital in Queens. I respect their gangsta.”
It was around this time that Smurf alleges 50 Cent stopped communicating
with him, resulting in a verbal feud between the two men.
The timing is bad
for Smurf, who signed his GF Records to a deal with Koch and was preparing to
release an album in September. That plan has been abandoned and Smurf said that
his album will not hit stores until October.
in jail is going to help us out even more,” Smurf said optimistically.
“That’s what I think. And I get to see who my real [friends] are. DJ Domination
is about his business – he’s gonna grind. I’m real confident.”
said that he would use his time behind bars wisely and would get his G.E.D.
I ain’t mad at that,” Smurf said. “I can do that. I can get my business
mind [right] for real, for real now. Read some books, get my GED, take some
other courses. People can write to me – it’s all good, but they gotta wait til
I get situated upstate. I’m still up here on the boat.”
