Fabolous Being Eyed by NYPD in Murder Case
The New York Daily News is reporting that Fabolous, whose real name is John Jackson, may be currently under investigation by the NYPD as a possible person of interest in the slaying of up and coming Brooklyn rapper G-Baby. While Fabolous has yet to be questioned in the March 13, 2010 murder of Greg "G-Baby" Brown, video evidence has surfaced that shows Fab leaving the nightclub just minutes before the 20-year-old was brutally gunned down.
G-Baby was the protégé of another Brooklyn rapper, Memphis Bleek, and was also signed to Bleek's Get Low Records. On the night of his murder, G-Baby entered the venue without his usual entourage to serve as the opening act for a scheduled performance by Fabolous at the Queen's nightclub Amazura. A police source told the NYDN, "[Fabolous] is about to get in the car as the shooting goes down."
Former hip-hop crime investigator Derrick Parker was present on the night of G-Baby's murder and says Fabolous made his exit around 4AM with no incidents or altercation during the night. Soon after, several blocks away, G-Baby was fatally shot in the back along with an innocent bystander who was hit in the groin and suffered non-life threatening injuries.
With no arrests or further leads in the case, G-Baby's mother also linked Fab to the murder, "My son was going to talk to Fab in a car and he got shot three times," Ms. Brown tells the New York Daily News. She added that she is only seeking justice for her son, "I don't want to talk to Fabolous," she said. "I want whoever did this to pay."
Fabolous' camp has yet to release a statement and his lawyers have not returned phone calls to the Daily News. Even with Derrick Parker confirming that G-Baby and Fabolous once shared a beef, Police have yet to name him as an official suspect in the case.
