Rapper Krumbsnatcha of the
Gang Starr Foundation was wounded in a hit and run following a dispute at a club
outside his native Boston and is now filing a civil lawsuit against police present
at the scene.
According to Krumb, born Sharief Haqquani, the episode occurred in front of
state troopers and the Leominster Police Department. Krumb alleges that police
were of no assistance.
“They witnessed this [hit and run] happen and they didn’t call
the ambulance to the scene,” Krumb told AllHipHop.com. “They pretty
much made me get up and escorted me out of the city.”
Krumb has already obtained attorneys to investigate the situation. “I
feel my civil rights were violated,” he continued. “These guys have
arrested me before on fake warrants, towed my car and everything. I [went] to
court and there wasn’t even a warrant.”
Krumb had been involved in other incidents with the same police department
in the past and alleged that they wanted him out of town. “It’s
not even about not being allowed [back]. I’m not going period anyway,
just because it’s too much tension,” Krumb said. “I’ve
been having altercations with police in the Boston area for numerous events.”
The rapper further explained that a song on the Training Day soundtrack called
“W.O.L.V.E.S,” where he lyrically attacked law enforcement, may
have added to the friction.
According to Krumb, the hit and run incident on Oct. 28 occurred about 1: 30
a.m. during a listening party for his latest album Let the Truth Be Told,
released earlier this month. Krumb said an altercation broke out between partygoers
and Prynya Sommola, an owner of Krumb’s label Golden Eyes Entertainment.
As the fight intensified and spilled outside the club, Krumb said, he was hit
with a car by the party crew and driven down the road on the car’s hood.
The rapper injured both knees and slightly fractured the lower part of his right
leg, hampering his ability to walk.
Krumb, who lives in Miami, said his mother is currently caring for him and
his condition is improving.
As of now, Krumb’s upcoming projects include a mixtape album and a collaboration
album titled Experience with Florida producer Stix. The duo, called
The Experiment, expects to release the album next summer.
“It’s a whole different style. I’m experimenting more on
different sounds and maybe even more commercial records,” Krumb said.
“I’m just trying to go all out with this one.”
Krumb is also finishing up a new mixtape called "Reverse the Curse,"
hosted by DJ Chubby Chubbs, with material that didn’t make Let the
Truth Be Told.
The mixtape is expected to release in late December, early January.
