Hip-Hop Rumors: Will Text Messages Bury Benzino?

Benzino is one lucky man. He got hit with a couple of bullets that were meant to take that life of his. But, his nephew has made some serious claims that may bury Zino Grigio! The nephew said that he and Zine exchanged text messages where Zino had threatened his life so badly that he didn’t even roll to Zino’s funeral with his family. He said he was scared so he dumped bullets in Zino ON SIGHT. Now, he’s totally registered to carry that gun and he also is apparently in security. So, this may be in his favor. I don’t know, BUT…the text messages are what may cause a unique situation for Zino. If there are these threats, they could be damning information on some level or another. And with the state of laws like Stand You Ground, dude’s state of mind could truly come into play.

The nephew, Gai Scott, is held in jail without bail.

    Nice defense if he still has said text messages.

    • Carlos

      doesn’t need to keep them, just needs to get a copy of his phone records.

    • ZUBU

      Most cell carriers store text messages, for a lengthy period of time. Not certain if it will take a court order to release the texts, but they are there for the viewing.

      • Brick Soulja

        Oh yeah, the authorities can get a warrant to see them. I forgot about that.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      sorry Babe – even tho your good looking, you wrong again – if that was a good defense – then shooitings will be legal everytime someone said or looked at someone crazy – that’s more threatening than a text, because its immediately there

      • Brick Soulja

        You do have a point.

  • Interesting.



    • Mec-One

      Word, I’m pretty sure the text messages was heated from both of them ……. but that doesn’t mean to dump on sight …… he didn’t even give zino the chance to make a fist! lol

    • Thats what i was thinking…a half decent lawyer can argue if he thought the threats were serious he wouldve went to the authorities…and to my knowledge Stand Your Ground Law isnt up North in Mass.

  • premo

    The shooting happened in Massachusetts. This is not Florida, so the Stand Your Ground law does not apply.

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      stand your ground isnt just in FL

      • lovecraft

        There is no version of stand your ground on the books in massachusetts, one of the most fiercely pro gun control and anti individual armed self defense states in the nation.

      • Brooklyn Stoop

        i stand corrected. mass only have castle doctrine not stand your ground

  • JimJames29

    I didn’t pass the bar but I know a little bit, enough that text messages are not an excuse to go bust your sh*t.

    • Carlos

      exactly, I also doubt that will hold up in court. But if such texts do exist then Zino is a dumb mo fo.

    • Blaq_Boi

      Only if Zino had confronted him on some level he coulda claimed that. Not when Zino wasn’t even moving in his direction.

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      rap lyrics can be used as a reason to convict but “threatening” text cant lead to someone bussin at you?

  • Carlos

    crazy that a dude named Benzino was riding in a Ford, and his nephew who shot him ran up on him driving a Bentley. Should call nephew Bentzino.

    • Dontoure Smith

      …………………. Boooooooooooooooo

  • Brindle

    stand “YOU” ground? Come on AHH!!

    • Brooklyn Stoop

      maybe illseed is Haitian lol

      • Brindle

        sometimes I have to read sentences on here 2-3 times or the worst, you read the whole thing without realizing the mistakes and it seems like you just read something in another language

    Niccas so gangsta but then when they get caught, they got the excuses. Take the L for trying to be a G and Benzino is official tissue so he slowed down these last few years but best believe he might get this nicca stankin somewhere…..

    • PhilTheGreat

      Man he didn’t make any excuses… He lying in the bed. Everything being told is from outside observers point of view. Plus 9 times out of 10 if you threaten a member of your bloodline you don’t really want them dead. Nigga shot his uncle bro. Lol, because he was afraid of a “so called” text message?

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Im talking about the nephew makings excuses. How is outside point of view when the nephew is making statements and police are releasing this info? We are getting first hand view so far. How do you know who wants who dead because they are family? FOH!

      • PhilTheGreat

        Oh haha when you said caught, I was thinking you were talking bout Benzino gettin “caught” like “got”. Lmao my bad.

      • Where did the police released a statement or that he even gave one?

        You reaching, just because you the type to give a statement b4 they put you in the squad car, doesn’t mean everyone else is.

        The article is too confusing, was the shooting even at the Funeral, because it says the nephew didn’t go.

        This is the RUMORS section dip’chet!

  • digitallife

    You clap at a moving car and homie you’ve got some reckless endangerment charges headed your way…legal gun or not legal. Hell they even advise cops to not shoot from their cars in most situations. He didn’t even know if there was a kid in the car with the man.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      yeah – that shit ain’t gonna work

    • Nah, extenuating & mitigating circumstances apply.

      IE: You walking home, legally (or illegally*?) strapped, with a yankee fitted & some out of town drug dealers from the Bloods mistake you for a potential rival & do a drive by, complete with bussing, kicking up dust and smoke from the rubber the driver is cooking & you defend yourself, that isn’t reckless endangerment, and if you hit some innocent bystander by mistake….well, the Bloods have to eat that too.

      If Benzino made a threat:
      “Next time I see you, I’m gonna do you like everyone would do Butchcraig & his fellow stiff necked, B’ish Ninjette* sister in butt piracy, Inmadpuroz,…” etc, then pull up on you at the funeral, in an agressive and threatening manner,…then Benzino created that atmosphere, and since Zino left the scene, who’s to say, he didn’t pull out a whammer and point at ‘ole Boy, who then merely wounded an emotionally distraught Benzino, to save himself and the lives of family members in mourning, etc.

      >>Throwing in plenty of eyewitnesses, for good measure, knowing Zino probably won’t take the stand due to the code of the streets.

      • Immortal

        “Next time I see you, I’m gonna do you like everyone would do Butchcraig & his fellow stiff necked, B’ish Ninjaz sister in butt piracy, Inmadpuroz,…” etc”….you’re a DAMN fool for that one lolz

      • Had to think of a serious threat to bodily injury, etc.

  • Papi Peligro

    Might have worked if he was white.

  • MrNoName2K

    lol man niggas be gettin killed and catching cases over txt msgs…wtf

    just because someone makes threats through text messages doesnt give anyone grounds to dump on sight!!!!! dumb ass reporting!!!! as usual

    • TruthSerum

      Maybe not legally but I was always told never to shoot my mouth off unless I intended to follow through with it, a lesson that seems to be lost on the Troll generation. You tell somebody what your planning, don’t act surprised if they take your word for it and move first.

      • Arrie Mental Woodard

        fam, you are exactly right… and i totally agree, i just meant from the legal standpoint… he cant go in the court room like “your honor he sent me threats on my phone, so i didnt attend the actual funeral services but i waited til it was over and dumped on him” Judge will be like “SECURITY get this dumbass outta here”

  • Joan

    Benzine rolled up to the side of the procession…that was threatening . He wasn’t even planning on attending the funeral of his mother . His siblings do not speak to him

  • Super_Villain

    Old ass nigga! *Game voice*

    • afroking

      game aint young

      • JLAWES


  • Nemesis_Enforcer

    Threatening texts don’t mean dump bullets at someone on sight. That’s not going to hold up. Sorry Pal. Imagine if that WAS legal though lol.

  • SlapAddict1986

    dude looks like a midget

  • AK

    has anyone ever heard any music from this guy…

    • TruthSerum

        Trinidad James wack ass…


      “ALMIGHTY RSO” and “MADE MEN” were the groups he belonged to, but I don’t know any of his cuts!!! I did hear that “RSO” was a wild crew back in the day, and was under investigation by the feds.

      • ChocolateGirlWondah

        “Black hoodie, black sweatshirt, black pants, bad boys don’t dance, always in court with a new case, pumping on the block with a mean face.” – That’s that RSO “Bad Boys” shit. I hate to say it, but that shit was hard.

    “roll to Zino’s funeral”??? Did the nigga die or is this another phukk up???

  • king

    His name is gai !!

  • Sleep

    Please, you know Benzino’s wack ass was talking to old girl before the pic was taken. He closed his eyes to increase the drama factor.

  • Sleep

    Anyone remember that dope song Benzino did? Me neither, never happened.

    • lol

    • JLAWES

      Do you remember the BIBLE of HIP HOP… he was not really a Rapper young buck…. The Source something like that… your jokeeee back fired you looking dumb.

      • Sleep

        Sorry, but he was a rapper. I also remember that he completely ruined The Source, giving his own garbage shit high ratings. Made a joke out of a once respectable magazine. He killed The Source with his bullshit.

      • Splatter

        Yup. Facts.

      • Splatter

        Na he was a rapper first part of that lame group that never made it. So that joke made sense. Dude is horrible. Source lost all credibility when they played favoritism and bias. Then once he went at shady records and gave his own album 4 stars it was a rap.

  • richard_b_hard

    Benzino banned from Boston! A lot of people want to murk him.
    Bet that nigga gonna make a song about this event in a feeble attempt to stay relevant.

  • ChocolateGirlWondah

    They don’t have the “Stand Your Ground Law” in Massachusetts. Black, White, Green, everybody gets smoked out here.
