Rapper YFN Lucci facing murder charges after shooting in Atlanta

Rapper YFN Lucci facing murder charges after shooting in Atlanta

Rapper YFN Lucci is wanted in Atlanta on multiple charges — including murder — in connection with fatal shooting last month, Atlanta police said Tuesday.

Officers responding to calls of a person shot around 5:20 p.m. on December 10, found James Adams, 28, lying in the street with a gunshot wound to his face, the police incident report states. Adams was taken to a local hospital where he died.

A short time later, a second victim, Kevin Wright, 32, arrived at an area fire station by private vehicle with a gunshot wound to his abdomen, the report states. Homicide investigators determined the two shootings were likely related.

Three suspects were named in the investigation, including 29-year-old YFN Lucci, whose real name is Rayshawn Bennett, police said.

CNN was unable to reach Lucci or his representatives for comment.

He is wanted on charges of felony murder, aggravated assault, participation in street gang activity and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

The other two suspects were caught, police said.

An award of up to $5,000 is being offered through Crime Stoppers for the rapper’s arrest and prosecution.

YFN Lucci is an Atlanta-native who is known for his 2017 hit “Everyday We Lit” and 2020’s “Wet. (She got That …).”

Eddie Murphy wants to go back to stand-up when the pandemic is over

Eddie Murphy wants to go back to stand-up when the pandemic is over

After three decades and multiple blockbuster movies, Eddie Murphy is planning a return to the medium that helped launch his acting career.

The “Beverly Hills Cop” star has revealed that he wants to do new stand-up comedy performances once the pandemic ends.

Appearing on SiriusXM’s podcast “Comedy Gold Minds with Kevin Hart” on Thursday, the actor said had it not been for Covid-19 restrictions, he would have already made a comeback.

“My plan was to do ‘Dolemite,’ ‘Saturday Night Live,’ ‘Coming 2 America,’ and then do stand up. And then the pandemic hit, and it shut the whole sh*t down,” the “Saturday Night Live” alum explained.

“The whole time last year I would have been out working on my act, trying to get my sh*t right, and then the whole thing shut down.”

He added that “when the pandemic is over and it’s safe for everybody to go out and do it, then the plan is to do it.”

Murphy, who turns 60 next month, started making a name for himself on the comedy circuit in the early 1980s with his Richard Pryor-inspired stand-up and often polarizing shows.

His 1987 film “Raw” — which was filmed in New York City’s Madison Square Garden — received a wide release and remains the top-grossing stand-up comedy movie of all time, earning more than $50 billion.

Murphy can next be seen in “Coming 2 America,” the hotly anticipated sequel to the 1988 comedy classic, “Coming to America.”

The second installment, which premieres globally on Amazon Prime Video Friday will follow newly crowned King Akeem (Eddie Murphy) as he returns to Queens, New York with his trusted confidante Semmi (Arsenio Hall) in search of his previously unknown son and heir to the throne.
