Selector Foota Hype now have reasons to believe that his life may be in danger. This stems from an internal war that has been brewing between himself and the Alliance…more particularly David Brooks aka Mavado.
Indications are that it could lead to gun violence. According to reports last week Saturday Foota Hype said he was on his phone talking to his mother, Doreen, when gunshots rang out in the background. His mother screamed, and his blood ran cold.
The selector was quoted as saying “Me and her did a reason when it happen, pure gunshot. Mi lose 10 pound same time, mi shoes full a water, mi head swell up, mi tun eediat and mi drive go round de. Mi mother a bawl, mi just happy say she never got shot, mi mother house shot up and she no dead, mi just haffi thank God,” he said. Foota Hype said he knew who perpetrated the act, and that person is aligned to certain factions within the community.
“We know who do it and who that person is affiliated to. 50 persons say him no know bout it and 50 persons say he knows about it, but if that is the case, why not cut all ties to the people who give you a bad name.”
The selector vented his feelings on another website as he stressed that they were trying to intimidate him by getting to his mother. But according to him that tatics won’t work as he says “The Gully ah mine. I was born on the block. Me strengthen him, and mek him into a full grown giant. Now him want to crush who mek him ah eat. We ah go see if God ah allow that to happen.”
The stakes have been raised considerably especially in light of police reports that Mavado’s apartment uptown was shot up on Monday night.
“Somebody call me from foreign and tell me that it happened. Lastnight, I went to Uptown Mondayz and mi wrath. Mi talk mi mind, because my defence is music, I am not a gunman, I can’t afford to buy guns and bullets. Him call himself the Gully Gaad, but mi ah leave everything to God. If me live fi live, mi ah go live.”
