Rapper Kafani Says He Wasn’t Involved In Shooting That Left Eight Wounded


(AllHipHop News) A one-year-old boy was among the victims of gunfire that broke out in West Oakland yesterday (November 28), that sent eight people to the hospital.

The child and his father were both shot during an incident on an Oakland Street yesterday, when unknown gunmen opened fire on the crowd for motives that are not known.

A KTVU-TV news showed a van owned by rapper Kafani, that has been riddled with bullets.

According to a local news report, he was allegedly shooting a music video at the time of the gunfire, which occurred in a liquor store parking lot.

“I was not shot. News reports wrong I did not shoot a video today,” Kafani tweeted earlier this morning.

The one-year-old child is currently at Children’s Hospital in Oakland, where he underwent surgery, in an attempt to remove swelling from his brain.

Police are seeking motives as well as up to six suspects in the shootings.

The other seven victims’ injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening.

Kafani is an Oakland-based artist who hit big with the single “Fast (Like A Nascar.”

He has recorded tracks with rappers like Too $hort, Yukmouth, Freeway and others.

In August, Kafani, who was on house arrest, made headlines for issuing a series of threats to fellow Oakland native, Lil B.
