California rapper Crooked I was not shot last week, after weekend rumors ran rampant that the rapper was wounded or killed. The Long Beach, CA artist was involved in an altercation, but did not endure a physical blow from gunfire. “My client was not physically shot last week. Crooked I was involved in a situation, but was not physically harmed,” a representative for Crooked I told AllHipHop.com exclusively.Over the weekend, rumors virally spread that Crooked I had been the victim of a shooting, according to several sources. Crooked I was vague in an interview with vladtv.com."Some crazy s**t just went on. I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Right now I'm just trying to get to the bottom of it," Crooked said. "Physically, I'm good, but mentally, I'm kind of in a f**ked up place."Rapper G. Malone wrote about the incident with Crooked I, but stopped shy of confirming that gunfire struck his peer. "Something happened ... which they ain't explaining, but Crooked is ok. He is at his home in fine condition," G. Malone said on his Twitter page. "Once again, I'm not saying Crooked did or didn't get shot, n***as don't know. I'm just saying he isn't dead nor is he dying. Someone had media saying he was fatally wounded. That's not true."The rumors and speculation surrounding Crooked I had his friends and family extremely concerned. His Myspace page was inundated with comments. The 28-year-old rapper, born Dominic Wickliffe, is currently in the studio recording an as-yet-untitled independent project that will likely be released early next year.
