NEW YORK - A Manhattan parking lot shooting early Tuesday left rapper Fabolous both wounded and under arrest after police found two loaded weapons in a car carrying him and his entourage, authorities said.

The 28-year-old rapper, whose legal name is John Jackson, was in stable condition at Bellevue Hospital after being shot in the thigh.

Jackson and his three unidentified companions told police that that they had just left Justin’s - a soul food restaurant owned by rap mogul Sean “P. Diddy” Combs - when they were accosted in a nearby lot by a lone gunman, who fired and ran away.

 

The foursome jumped into a 2005 Dodge Magnum and took off, attracting the attention of police when they ran a red light. Officers stopped them and discovered two semiautomatic pistols in the vehicle, both apparently unlicensed, police said.

 

All four men were arrested after denying ownership of the weapons. Charges were pending.

 

 

Police did not name the three men arrested with the rapper following the shooting in the Flatiron District, saying only that they are 18, 23 and 29 years old and from the same Brooklyn neighborhood as Jackson.

 

An e-mail and phone call seeking comment from a representative at Def Jam Recordings on Tuesday were not immediately returned. The label is producing the rapper’s upcoming solo album, due out in December, according to Fabolous’ Web page on MySpace.com.

 

 

The rapper’s hits have included, “Breathe” and “Can’t Deny It,” and his songs cover topics ranging from romance to street life and violence. He most recently took part in the taping of the VH1 Hip Hop Honors, which were to air Tuesday evening.

 

 

New York has been the site of several shootings involving hip-hop stars over the years, many unsolved.

 

 

Earlier this year, Busta Rhymes’ bodyguard was killed outside a music video shoot at a Brooklyn warehouse. In 2002, Run-DMC member Jam Master Jay was fatally shot in his recording studio in Queens, and in 2000, 50 Cent was shot nine times while in the passenger seat of a car, also in Queens.

Rapper Cassidy In Critical Condition After Car Accident

10.05.2006 7:07 PM EDT

 

MC injured by truck swerving into oncoming traffic.

 

Cassidy is recovering in an undisclosed hospital after being involved in a serious car accident on Wednesday night in New Jersey.

 

The rapper was a passenger in an SUV en route to a studio in Yonkers, New York, when a U-Haul truck swerved into oncoming traffic and struck the SUV. The truck crashed into the side of the vehicle that Cassidy was sitting in, according to a J Records spokesperson and members of Cassidy's camp.

 

Cassidy was rushed to the hospital, suffering a fractured skull. A large number of bones in the left side of his face were also broken, according to his people. Cassidy is in critical condition and is said to be breathing on his own. On Thursday afternoon (October 5) he underwent a CAT scan; his reps report Cassidy's doctors as saying his brain activity is normal, adding that the rapper is heavily sedated and his injuries are not life-threatening. None of the four other passengers in the vehicle were injured.

 

On Thursday evening, Cassidy's friend and collaborator Swizz Beatz e-mailed MTV News saying, "Cass is like my brother, and this has been such a rough year for him. We're all praying and staying positive during this time. Thanks to everyone for their continued support, and please keep Cassidy and his family in your prayers." He expressed similar sentiments on L.A. radio station Power 106 on Thursday afternoon. Cassidy has been working on his third album for Swizz's Full Surface label, which is affiliated with J Records, for the past several months.

 

The rapper was released from prison in March after serving eight months. He had been convicted of involuntary manslaughter and other charges stemming from the 2005 shooting death of Desmond Hawkins (see "Cassidy Released From Jail After Serving Eight Months").
