As if attending his mother’s funeral wasn’t bad enough, rapper Benzino was also shot while paying his last respects to his mom, Mary Scott, who passed away on March 20.

According to reports, the Boston-based rapper and Love & Hip Hop star was shot multiple times by his nephew, 36-year-old Gai Scott, at the Duxbury, Boston funeral of his mother, held today.

While Benzino, aka Raymond Scott, was in his red Dodge SUV, Gai Scott allegedly pulled up next to him in a Bentley and began opening fire on the rapper. Benzino then got out of his vehicle and was given a ride to the Duxbury police station. He was later transported to South Shore Hospital by EMS.

Benzino is expected to survive the shooting and is in stable condition.

Gai Scott was arrested and charged with armed assault with intent to murder. He will be arraigned on Monday in the Plymouth District Court.

Police closed Route 3 because of the incident, causing massive backups and delays. After the shooting, the funeral procession continued to make its way to St. Peter’s Church in Plymouth while investigators searched the area.

The shooting was believed to be the result of a family feud between the two men.

    Let me begin by saying nobody really cares. I only came here to laugh about how someone living the “thug life” makes the news because he gets shot. Is it surprising to me that it happened at his mom’s funeral? Nope… That culture has no class, no morals, and they damn sure don’t have a reason to expect anything less than what this piece of trash got… If I had one wish, it would be that they would learn how to aim just a bit better…

      I feel sorry for you, the fact that you feel, live and think the way you do is one reason the world is so messed up. I pray for you as I pray for this victim, lets just hope someone out there does not hold you in the same regard this man’s nephew held him. Name calling and classifying is unwarranted, lets get back to a place of respect for all mankind.

  • dybnaps

    Probaly shot him to save the world from any more of his crappy rap music. Who would pay for his crappy music anyways?

    • CEllis

      Too bad the idiot did not die..

      Would have been nice to have this Black P.O.S off the street.

      Somebody needs to also shot that other idiot” Kanye West

  • God

    Hail Satan

    I don’t know who Benzino is, but I hope his nephew goes to prison for the rest of his sorry life. Shooting someone while they are attending their mother’s funeral should not only get you an extra fifty years, but a “Go directly to Hell” card as well.

  • john doe

    And uneducated ones at that.

    Benzino is one the guys who had beef with Eminem, Their war was escalating to that serious level. Look it up and also hear their diss songs to each other. Eminem killed this guy in the beef with that song “Nail in the Coffin”

    • Junebug

      Nail in the Coffin is such an awesome song!!! Love it!!

  • jackie

    Fuck Benzino, fuck his cousin, fuck rap music! God bless his poor mama for having to deal with his azz.

  • suave

    SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT! IGNORANT! THE MAN WAS SHOT WHILE PROBABLY IN THE WORST POSSIBLE EMOTIONAL STATE OF HIS LIFE, ALSO COULD HAVE DIED! SO WHO CARES IF YOU KNOW HIM OR NOT! IF YOU DON’T CARE DON’T POST AND SHOW A LITTLE RESPECT TO THE MAN AND HIS FAMILY!

    • Corny

      What the hell bro??!!! Go give respect all the kids that die in Africa because of warlords… Just because it hits the news you want to give your damn, respect

      • Rick Isaak

        At lest some respect for the poor lady that wasn’t even put in the ground yet. What the hell did she do? A tragic scene made even worse.

  • Rick Isaak

    I’m sure that’s what she would have wanted at her funeral, family shooting family. No respect!

  • Mia1990

    Right now it is not about the rap music that Benzino has created, or the people that he has hurt or so forth. It is about a human being fighting for his life while mourning over the loss of his mother. The negative comments that are said about him just goes to show that a lot of people have no compassion for another human being. As for all the people who are wishing him evil by wishing death upon him instead of speaking life, just remember what you wish, do, and say about others will come back on you or your loved ones. I pray for Benzino to be healed and comforted in this time of need and for God to have mercy upon the souls that have wished him evil.
