(AllHipHop News) As a result El-Amin has been sentenced to eight years in prison.
The two-day trial in Henrico County centered around conflicting stories from El-Amin and his best friend and music partner Curtis Brown who alleged that he was the target of El-Amin’s sacrificial offering.
On the day of the incident last December, both men reportedly smoked marijuana, meditated, and drank a sleep-inducing substance called “God juice” together. The two also got into a conversation about the power of the sun, mind voyages, and the secret society known as the Illuminati.
At that point the two versions of events began to separate. El-Amin and Brown both ended up shooting at each other with El-Amin taking a bullet to the abdomen and Brown being shot in the hand.
El-Amin testified that Brown was the aggressor. Brown said the El-Amin tried to kill him for a $50 million dollar record deal. According to Brown, El-Amin told him “you are my sacrifice” before firing at his head.
Evidence presented at trial showed that El-Amin shot first. Jurors convicted the 27-year-old of malicious wounding, use of a firearm in commission of a felony, possession of marijuana, and possession with intent to distribute marijuana. He was sentenced to eight years in prison and a $200 fine for the drug possession charge.
Henrico County Deputy Attorney Thomas L. Johnson described the case as “strange, bizarre, eccentric.”
