New Jersey Rapper Slain In Barbershop Dispute

(AllHipHop News) Rapper E9 was supposed to be performing at New York’s famous club SOB’s on Tuesday.

The opportunity was snatched from him after he was shot dead at a New Brunswick, NJ barbershop called Nu Trendz.

Eric Andrews Jr., 28, was involved in an argument that resulted in him getting shot. Sources with AllHipHop said that he was arguing with two brothers. One brother allegedly took out a gun, gave it to the other and commanded him to kill Andrews. Sources say, he complied. Police investigators have not made any formal announcement on the circumstances surrounding the rapper’s death.

All of this happened last Sunday about 5:53pm.

After he was shot, Andrews was taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Trauma Center, where he was pronounced dead.

At press time, police sought help in finding the suspects.

Below is E9 and 6FO’s song “Homeland,” about life in New Jersey and “M.O.N.E.Y.,” which features Waka Flocka.

    Damn, sad when is this gonna stop? In all honesty what goes on in the hip hop world is essentially a reflection of what goes on in society in general. I’m sick of brothas getting killed over trivial stuff.

    • 84stickupkid

      It is sad but this nu gen have degenerated they have not evolved into something better. They have not learned from the message that was portrayed by greats like PE, 2 PAC (the revolutionary), Paris, Kam, Krs 1 and Brand Nubian. All the tattoos, big bootys, bling and guns cannot save you. Pick up a book not a gun and most of all JUST BE YO SELF…R.I.P brotha.

      • ZUBU

        Well spoken my brotha! I love the book not a gun statement.

    Damn man…long live

  • Executive

    Pulled out a gun, handed it to someone else and demanded him to shoot him??

  • don’t these fools know the consequences for killing someone,your life will be hell forever.

    • Dubz

      They don’t care….because to them pride is bigger than freedom. In that moment, the satisfaction of revenge out weighs the consequences. Its when you miss that first holiday, or your kids first accomplishment do you realize what you threw away…all for a moment of satisfying your pride. Guys been using bullets when fist would suffice.

  • 7yoyo7

    This is a death festival. Doe-B, this dude, and also waka flocka’s brother (which AHH has not reported yet).
    This is a bad way to start the new year…

    • people die everyday man

      • 7yoyo7

        Really? Thanks for the info!
        But I’m talking about the rap industry here, not people in general.

        Nice input though, really useful comment! Let me give you a thumb up. THERE YOU GO…. *sarcasm*

  • Elayorx El

    Wow, this is right in my backyard, but it is rather alarming regarding the amount of death, and negativity, that is promoted on this site. Like others have stated, I have followed this site for many years, and the negative, to positive ratio, that has built up over those said years, has been staggering. Where is all of the positive Hip-Hop has to offer, every single day? Blood money is never good man, but much respect to the brother who passed on, and condolences to his family. You promote “other news”, from different sites, so reporting the violence that goes on in other genres would make sense, if it came from a caring space, that is.

  • Ryan

    Another black man dead from stupid bullshit. I know im white but as humans i just don’t understand why we gotta shoot instead of throwing hands up and settling shit after the fight to live another day. RIP

  • bigdoe6

    Nobody in the barbershop stepped up to diffuse the situation knowing things was going to get out of hand. Seems to me everybody else in the barbershop wanted to see something go down. Bunch of losers.

    • Product of Da Reagan Era

      Sometimes you got to mind your business and not get involved. We don’t know the whole story but that’s how people get caught up in stuff that had nothing to do with them.

      • Gliffix

        That is one of the main issues in urban American communities now. If you are amongst a situation like this one, it is YOUR BUSINESS! People seem to go through life nowadays as if they are in a television show or movie. Get involved. The Matrix was a warning.

      • Calico Joe

        Believe that if you want to. I seen a dude get put in a coma for trying to break up a fight. He didn’t know those cats or the reason they was fighting, tried to step in between them and got hit across the head with a Grey Goose bottle. If it don’t involve you it’s best to mind your business.

      • Gliffix

        That is a shame, but your post proves my point. If more people were involved in life instead of watching it play out, I doubt that man would have been hit with a bottle.

      • Judah Nazayar

        thats okay.. These foreign trioops here will remove all these niggas.. And thats good.. id love to see a bunch of ganmg banging demons in a fema camp

      When guns come in to the picture matters change quickly, but I feel you…

  • bigdoe6

    Pulled out a pistol and told his brother to kill him. I will never give my brother a pistol and tell him to shoot anyone. That goes to show how much loves his brother. “Here u go bro, shoot this nigga for me, do this time for me i will hold you down” SMH.

    • InTheNightKitchen

      Uh nah b, they both gonna be doing time.

      • $18592567

        The brother who gave him the gun catching at least 10-15 years for that…

  • Jared

    How do they know they were brothers and one commanded the other to destroy but don’t know the alleged suspects? Not saying that can’t happen just unlikely.

  • Rapist on BAIL

    You know dead rappers get better promotion

  • brotha_man

    death and taxes.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      3 kinds of death doe – natural, accidental and murder

    Such a shame. But respect to AHH for paying respect. Didn’t know E-9 too well personally, but he was friends and fam to my friends and fam and he was on the right track locally so it definitely hit close to home hearing the news. R.I.P. bro, I’m sure 6FO and everybody from Exit 9 gonna make sure your memory is not lost in transition.

  • 10timesovaG

    No disrespect to bro but niggas die for a reason…Rwg though I hate to see a nigga get murked but where im from and probably anywhere else its for a reason and 9 times outta 10 it be something that can be resolved

  • i’mreloaded!

    I’m so tired of niggas I don’t know what to say anymore.

  • Gabernasher

    Good thing you’re keeping up with how random dudes look.

  • i’mreloaded!

    Maybe if rappers wouldn’t pose like they’re holding pistols and mean mugging, stupid niggas wouldn’t try to test their street credibility.

  • $18592567

    A rapper gets killed every 2.5 days… Crazy.

  • Ike’s Mood

    doe b, this lame-ass nigga…CHEEF KEEF IS NEXT!!! please, if there is a god out there…

  • Them 2 tracks sounded good to me, peace be with that mans soul.

  • W.E.B. Du Bois

    Rapist — look at the subject we on — its amazing how people like you don’t tire of being stupid and useless

  • Tha Colony

    Its really hard out there for a rapper, niggas be fiending for that street cred hard. cFuck the white slavers, black people would be the end of us black people in not so distant future. RIP

    • johnblacksad

      “they say it’s the white man I should fear, but it’s my own kind doin all the killin here”

      • Tha Colony

        Thats for True J, i think im getting to understand what would get Michael Jackson to bleach his skin, if i need to live the rest of my natural life, i might consider turning my self white, damn that line rhymed i might be mistaken to be a rapper, and get killed.

      • Kevin

        Michael Jackson skin has nothing to do with black folks killing each other that is like saying people in sandy hook want to be black because that fool killed those babies.

      • Tha Colony

        Nah no beef homey, i was using that in reference to me wanting to be white to duck the bullshit. I wont know why Mike wanted his skin to look like that of a white man. But in my case i would like to look white to get that respect from other black people plus get that white mans salary level at work. You kno?

    • AlbertoRipRon

      You weren’t there bruh. You don’t know the ins and outs. And black folks won’t be the end of black folks.
