BAY AREA RAPPER SPICE-1 SHOT, CRITICAL CONDITION

Posted by Billyjam, December 3, 2007 08:05pm | Post a Comment

According to a report posted on the website Baller Status dot com, longtime Bay Area Rapper Spice 1 was shot earlier today (Monday, December 3rd) and is reportedly in critical condition. The legendary East Bay rapper is originally from Texas. He was discovered by Too $hort when he went by the name MC Spice and was part of The Dangerous Crew. Apparently he was shot in Hayward during the early hours of this morning but so far specific details of the exact attack are sketchy and incomplete.
       
According to the website, the rapper's manager, Six, confirmed the shooting but said that despite rumors, the rapper is still alive but in critical condition at an unspecified area hospital. According to the manager, two shots hit the rapper -- one in the chin and another in the chest, missing his heart by only inches. Ironically the attack on Spice-1, who refers to himself in lyrics as the "East Bay Gangsta," mirrors the lyrical content of many of his popular gangsta-themed tracks like the classic '93 "Trigga Gots No Heart" from the Menace II Society soundtrack.

       

AMOEBITE PROFILE: MARTY DOWERS, BERKELEY

MARTY DOWERS
AMOEBA MUSIC, BERKELEY:

AMOEBLOG: How did you end up working at Amoeba Music, Berkeley and what is your job there?

MARTY: I was working at a record store in Hawaii and wanting to move back to the Bay. My sister inquired as to if Amoeba or Rasputin were hiring. Turned out they both were. I never heard back from Rasputin, but Marc (Weinstein) said come on out for an interview. This was just as the San Francisco store was opening -- so some of the Berkeley buyers moved over there, and there was a spot for me.

AMOEBLOG: What makes working at Amoeba different from other jobs you've had?                          

MARTY: I've been in the 'industry' since 1980, but always wholesale -- one stops, rack jobbers. The store in Hawaii was the first retail job. Going from that little store front shop to Amoeba was quite an experience. Amoeba has become an institution!

AMOEBLOG: Best place to  grab a bite nearby Amoeba Berkeley?

MARTY: Good luck. Where's the Japanese ramen?

AMOEBLOG: What's the best record of all time?

MARTY: (laughing) Obviously, that's a very difficult question. It depends on mood, genre, etc. But how about this: "Who's santana abraxasThat Lady" (from '64) by the Isley Brothers -- a perfect single!
