As of this morning, we thought housekeeping was the most dangerous businesses in the world. But, more violence against Source employees reminds us that producing a hip-hop magazine totally increases your chances of getting your ass kicked.
Busta Rhymes, who went on raging spree, in Miami last Sunday reportedly screamed at a gay guy after brawling with Source editor David Mays at the city's hotspot Opium.
Many of the artists on Busta's management company, Violator, including 50 Cent and Eminem, have had a problem with Mays over his coverage of them in The Source.
Rhymes allegedly cracked a champagne bottle over Mays' head, sending him to the hospital for a gash. (According to a tip we got the other day, "someone left Opium Sunday night seriously gushing blood all over the place." Until Gatcrasher cracked the case, however, we weren't sure who it was.)
50 stitches later, Mays is all right, but we think he should consider leaving the mag ... what about Giant? That seems to be the place for editors who were once beat up by members of the hip-hop community.
