Police: 13 hurt in shooting at Tempe, Ariz., club (http://azstarnet.com/news/state-and-regional/police-hurt-in-shooting-at-tempe-ariz-club/article_ee19e8d6-9d47-5c8d-9a1e-5791f3058640.html - broken link)
Hmm, I wonder if this has anything to do with it.

"The shooting occurred during a rap concert by Los Angeles artist Nipsey Hussle, who broke onto the rap scene in 2009 and is a self-proclaimed Crips gang member, according to a New York Times article two years ago."

Note to self: Avoid going to Rap concerts- actually, never go to a Rap concert- it's pretty obvious what's gonna happen.

I'm sure Nipsey Russell would have SO appreciated the play on his name.

LOL! I was thinking the same thing. This is a far cry from Hollywood Squares!

Note to The Clubhouse:

In the future, please refrain from booking anyone that brags about gang affiliations. Ever notice how all of the rappers that end up shot always fall into that boat.

Hey, there's an awesome band made up of guys from the Mongols biker club. Lets book 'em! What? The Hell's Angels rode in and shot the place up? We didn't think that would happen!

Idiots.

I wonder when the last time in Phoenix there was a gang shooting at the Phoenix Symphony. Or at any country music show? What does this tell you about rap? Why the young people don't get it is beyond me.

The "music" is not the main problem- when the "artist" is a self proclaimed gang member (not all rap performers are) the stage is pretty much set (pardon the pun) for what happened.
