Benzino Speaks After Being Shot By Nephew: 'Blood Doesn't Mean It's Love'

Despite having a bullet still lodged in his shoulder after being shot at on Friday, rapper Benzino says he's not upset about the accused shooter being his nephew.

Instead, the "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" star, 48, whose real name is Raymond Scott, told Boston's FOX 25 News that he is upset the incident happened on the way to his mother's funeral.

"My mother was good, my mother wasn't about this," Benzino said, in an interview from his South Shore Hospital bed.

A nephew of the rapper, identified as Gai Scott, 36, was arrested in connection to the gunfire that erupted as the funeral procession moved towards St. Peter's Church in Plymouth, Mass.

"Once I started getting to the beginning of the procession, gun shots, boom, boom, boom," Benzino said.

"I took a deep breath just to see if it was in my chest, but it wasn't. I didn't feel no pain, so I maneuvered the car jumped out the car and I'm running down the middle of the street to all the other cars in the procession throwing my hands up like I need help."

He was picked up by another relative and taken to a nearby police station before being taken to the hospital.

Benzino refused to talk about his family's feud or a possible motive for his nephew's attack, but suggested it might be a dispute about money and that he is not on good terms with the alleged shooter.

"Blood doesn't mean it's love," he told FOX 25.
