 Oct 24 - "Hommo" 3 weeks later got shot down

October 24, 2005 -- THE mystery gunman who pumped the nine bullets into 50 Cent that helped make him a rap superstar was a Brooklyn stick-up artist named Darryl "Hommo" Baum, a new book reveals.
New York magazine music editor Ethan Brown's "Queens Reigns Supreme: Fat Cat, 50 Cent, and the Rise of the Hip-Hop Hustler" (AnchorBooks) reports that Baum — whose nickname was short for "Homicide" — was himself fatally gunned down three weeks after he shot 50 in June 2000.

While 50 has implied in interviews that his a$sailant was k!lled in retaliation for shooting him, Brown reports that Baum, 34, was actually offed because one of his street thug pals had k!lled a member of Brooklyn's notorious Cash Money Brothers crew.

50 may have cheered the news of Baum's violent demise, but Mike Tyson, a close friend of Baum, was so despondent that he stopped training for his f!ght against Lou Savarese. Baum's [rip] proved not to be too much of a distraction: Tyson scored a knockout after 12 seconds of the first round.

Among the other highlights of Brown's look at the connection between hip-hop and the criminal underbelly:

* Jam Master Jay — the legendary Run DMC deejay who was fatally shot in the head in a Queens recording studio in 2002 — turned to dealing drugs when he fell on hard times. "By the mid-'90s, Jay had become so desperate that he began running small amounts of cocaine — two or three kilos at a time — down Interstate 95 from New York to Baltimore to one of the city's most well-connected distributors, according to a source who worked closely with the distributor in Baltimore," Brown writes.

* In his first public statement about the federal investigation into Irv Gotti's murk Inc. hip-hop empire, Russell Simmons refuses to support his former friend, imprisoned Queens crack kingpin Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, whose ties to murk Inc. are at the center of the probe.

Don't believe everything you read. Jam Master Jay had a sub-label out under Def Jam called JML, where he had acts like Onyx, Redman & Warren G under his wing. Onyx went Platinum in 1993-94... Redman sold Gold twice and Warren G sold 2 million units... how then would Jam Master Jay have fallen on hard times?

You decide...

2-3 kilos is small amount I know he was making at least, a minum of 5 of each key he sold, so 15,000 profit for a run isn't really that bad, or small.
my roommate caught an 5 year bid for getting bagged with one re-rocked key, so it can't be that small.
