Music executive and aspiring rapper Tony Austin aka “Mr. Make it Happen” has filed suit against hip-hop mogul Diddy over a 2010 shooting that occurred outside of his Atlanta, Ga. restaurant Justin’s.

Though neither were critically injured in the incident, Austin was rushed to the hospital, along with an associate, after having been shot in the parking lot outside of Diddy’s restaurant in the Buckhead district of Atlanta, in November 2010.

Austin, who is respected industry vet Kevin Liles‘ cousin, and has served as president of Russell Simmons Music Group and A&R for Def Jam, filed suit in the U.S. District Court of Northern Georgia on Friday (July 15), accusing Diddy of failing to maintain a safe environment for his restaurant’s customers. Austin, who is now an aspiring MC, claims that the restaurant’s management was aware of “dangerous and hazardous conditions” around the location, yet failed to provide adequate security for their guests.

Diddy and his legal team have yet to respond to media inquiries regarding the shooting.

Tony Austin released a ‘Gangsta Grillz’ mixtape with DJ Drama in 2010, and has worked with Atlanta rappers Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka Flame.
