(AllHipHop News) The story of local Virginia rapper Wafeeq Sabir El-Amin’s attempt to offer his friend as a blood sacrifice to the Illuminati almost seemed to wild to be true, but the jury in his malicious wounding case believed his victim’s version of the situation as the truth. As a result El-Amin has been sentenced to eight years in prison.
The two-day trial in Henrico County centered around conflicting stories from El-Amin and his best friend and music partner Curtis Brown who alleged that he was the target of El-Amin’s sacrificial offering.
On the day of the incident last December, both men reportedly smoked marijuana, meditated, and drank a sleep-inducing substance called “God juice” together. The two also got into a conversation about the power of the sun, mind voyages, and the secret society known as the Illuminati.
At that point the two versions of events began to separate. El-Amin and Brown both ended up shooting at each other with El-Amin taking a bullet to the abdomen and Brown being shot in the hand.
El-Amin testified that Brown was the aggressor. Brown said the El-Amin tried to kill him for a $50 million dollar record deal. According to Brown, El-Amin told him “you are my sacrifice” before firing at his head.
Evidence presented at trial showed that El-Amin shot first. Jurors convicted the 27-year-old of malicious wounding, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, possession of marijuana, and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. He was sentenced to eight years in prison and a $200 fine for the drug possession charge.
Henrico County Deputy Attorney Thomas L. Johnson described the case as “strange, bizarre, eccentric.”
