Skull Gang affiliate Hynief has stepped forward to clear up confusion and speculation surrounding his attack on rapper JoJo Simmons last weekend in New York.
While Santana had nothing to do with setting up the confrontation, Hynief did admit he reacted out of loyalty toward the Skull Gang leader.
“I don’t want people to get the JoJo sh*t twisted,” Hy said in an interview. “I did that sh*t because it’s the principals, it’s just the principals behind the fact. You run your mouth, you call n*ggas out [by] they name and then you out here running around these streets that’s active and you know, I caught you n*gga. I ain’t even take advantage of you. I ain’t punch you or nothing. Basically, n*gga, I just roughed the little n*gga up a little bit. Stop running your mouth. If you ain’t about that life, my G, don’t be out here running your mouth, my n*gga. … Another thing, I ain’t Juelz goon neither — people are like, ‘Yeah, he was attacked by Juelz Santana’s goon.’ First of all, Juelz ain’t know nothing about the situation, my n*gga. Like, I caught the n*gga on my own. … Juelz is my brother. … He got an unexpected call from me like, ‘Yo Elz, what’s up? What’s up? I got this n*gga right here in a headlock. Like, what you want me to do?’ It ain’t like he made that call and he made that happen and I followd the order or some sh*t.” (Underground Tunnel TV)
This week, Santana stayed mum and denied having any active issues when asked about the JoJo incident.
“[JoJo?] Nothing, nothing. It’s just, you know? It’s cool, he’s cool, we cool. It’s cool. Nothing happened, nothing’s going on.” (Power 99)
A couple days ago, JoJo addressed making weekend headlines after being attacked by Hynief.
“I mean, I ain’t got no comment towards it. I’m not really into the violence, I’m not really into the thug life sh*t. I’m not gonna sit here and talk about the thug sh*t,” JoJo said in a video. “I grew up a very good kid and all that other sh*t so they can stick to that violent stuff, but me? I’ma stick to getting money. All I’ve been around is money all my life. I ain’t been around all that — gun sh*t, that’s not what I do. What I do is I count money and I f*ck b*tches and I travel the world. That’s all I do. I’m not on that violent sh*t.” (Crave)
Rumors of the alleged confrontation started circulating after a photo leaked online last weekend.
OH DAMN! I thought being the son of Run of Run DMC would give somebody in Hip-Hop some sort of protection from the streets. But, no. It is being rumored that one of Juelz Santana’s goon’s took it to JoJo Simmons for their silly beef a few months ago. But, maybe it wasn’t so silly. The dude that did it said the following: “Guess who I caught y’all Lil punk a$$ Jo Jo that made the diss track look at his face when he ace! #facts shouldn’t pop shit if u not bout that life real n***as don’t care who u related too fuck n***a.” So much for being related to Russ or Run.
