According to All Hip Hop, over the weekend a shooting took place at a CIAA basketball tournament in Charlotte featuring Diddy, Future, and Fabolous. Details remained unknown at the time of the report, but footage was uploaded to Youtube after the shooting went down.

The video shows panicked party-goers leaving the Sheraton Hotel after shots were fired about 2 a.m. Two men were shot.

Police have yet to announce any arrests or suspects.

According to reports, Diddy’s event wasn’t sanctioned by the CIAA Tournament. This is reportedly the first major act of violence during the CIAA’s 9 years in Charlotte.

On a lighter note Rick Ross’s 6th studio Album, ‘Mastermind,’ which was available for streaming only on last week, is now available for purchase a day early, today (March 3) on iTunes.

‘Mastermind’ boasts appearances from Jay Z, Jeezy, French Montana, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and more. If you purchase the 19 track deluxe edition, Z-Ro & Scarface are featured on the album as well, and there is also a 29-track super deluxe edition as well.

50 Cent and Steve Stoute met face-to-face at a New York Knicks game over the weekend. Of course there have been issues between the two men for over a decade now, but things quickly got heated between the rapper and the author of ‘The Tanning of America,’

Steve Stoute made comments about 50 Cent during a recent interview with Angie Martinez. Stout was quoted saying,

“[50 Cent] hasn’t had a hit in a really long time. He has not made anything musically that has changed anything in a very long time,” says Stoute. “I feel like he’s always gearing up for something that never happens. Hopefully, now that he’s independent and there’s no record company to blame, his aggressive content can get on the air. The last great song he made was ‘I Get Money. Kanye’s put out three, four albums since then.”

Check out the video below 50 cent posted in response to Steve Stoute’s interview.

Let’s hope 50 and Stoute can work out their differences like men.

Tune in tomorrow for more with, ‘Tha Wire.’
