A body was found in the parking lot around 11:15 pm and a second body was found in a car nearby. One victim has been identified as 25-year-old Deron Hitchens. The second man’s name has not been released. He was 28.
An hour earlier a 25-year-old man was shot in the shoulder when someone opened fire inside Mardi Gras World. Police do not believe the two shootings were related.
On last year year two separate incidents happened at the rappers concert. One man was killed at a Columbus, Ohio concert, as well as two people who were shot a Cape Girardeau, Missouri concert.
According to T-Pain,
“My management came to me and said Baby, Wayne, and Slim got together, they talked and they don’t want to sign you because you’re a liability… ‘You drink too much. Sometimes you make a fool of yourself. Sometimes you tell the truth about things that shouldn’t be told,” Pain tells VladTV. “I thought we are all real n***as. I thought we were ‘real motherf**kers.’ You don’t hide nothing. That’s what we do.”
Pain later spoke with Cash Money label heads, Baby and Slim about their decision not to sign him. The brothers informed him that it was because they did not like his management. They claim his management lied to him about the 'liability' statements.
T-Pain also explained why the joint album with Lil Wayne was never released. The singer says he went through a dark phase where he would drink until he blacked out.
