Investigators say the rap group’s talk of viοlence in lyrics blεd over into real life when members of rap group “2G” burst into a hotel to interrupt a celebration being sponsored by rival group “Migos.”
“When you become a victim of a crime like this, there’s no glory, there’s no stardom for what these guys are rapping about. This is reality. Someone lost a life,” Cpl. Deon Washington of the Gwinnett County Police Department said, according to myfoxatlanta.com
Surveillance video from the Quality Inn hotel on June 11 shows two men running into the hotel and then running out only moments later while brandishing guns.
Washington was taken aback by how calm the assailants were.
“Very casually as if this is a game and a big joke, but it’s not because someone lost their life,” Washington said.
Paris Brown, 23, was one of approximately 30 people gathered at the celebration when the rival rappers opened fire. Brown was gunned down at the scene when he was struck by a bullet that police believe was intended for Migos member Kiara Cephus.
“He was just a supporter of the rap group Migos and essentially caught a stray bullet,” Cpl. Washington said.
Washington says Cephus was interviewed but seemed more concerned about how talking to police would impact his image than actually helping to find the person who gunned down Brown.
“We know he was there, however he would not cooperate with the police investigation,” Washington said.
Corey Marzette, an affiliate of the rap group 2G, has been arrested.
