Hot 97 gets evicted...

Published by Warren Dell under on Wednesday, May 03, 2006
The landlords of New York based Hip-Hop radio station Hot 97 have filed a lawsuit fighting for the eviction of the company. The lawsuit comes after last weeks episode with the rapper Jamol 'Gravy' Wollard being the last straw of years worth of infamous incidents involving rap stars.

First it was the scene of the 2001 incident which led to Lil Kim going on an iron vacation for covering up what she saw of the shooting where a friend of the rapper Capone got hit.

It also played host to the beginnings of 2005's feud between The Game and 50 Cent when while on air Fiddy mentioned The Game was out of G-Unit. A member of the LA rappers entourage was shot at when they tried to get inside the studio to Fiddy.

Other incidents have included P.Diddy, Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Cam'ron and DMX. The latter called a security guard an "$8.50 an hour f**wit" after his refusal of entry to the building. The current lease with the landlord ends in 2012. This is another blow for the station who has been involved in a ratings war with Power 105, home to Marley Marl and Tony Touch.

Thank god this doesn't happen at 1Xtra!
