According to NBC 10, Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel has been shot after an apparent fight outside a Jersey Shore home. His attorney believes the rapper was not the intended target.
The shooting happened around 9:45 a.m. outside Sigel’s home along the 800 block of Spruce Avenue in Pleasantville, New Jersey, police said. Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, was hit in the back, according to his attorney Fortunato Perri, Jr. He was taken to a hospital in critical condition and is currently in surgery.
The 40-year-old rapper was released from federal prison in August after serving a two-year sentence for tax evasion. Sigel was formerly signed to Jay-Z’s Roc-A-Fella Records before the two rappers broke ties.
