Chaka Zulu, a longtime manager of Ludacris, was one of three people shot in Atlanta’s Buckhead district back in June. One person did not make it and died while being treated in the hospital.
Chaka Zulu, the longtime manager of rapper Ludacris, has been charged with felony and attacks for an incident that happened in June this year. However, a new video from the incident shows Zulu getting beaten by a group of men before he fired.
As revealed by TMZ, a group of men, including Artez Benton, who was killed in the melee, arrive to Apt4B, park in the valet area and make their way inside. 10 minutes later, the men leave the restaurant, owned by Zulu, after some sort of dispute.
During the argument, a man named Corey Crawford is seen retrieving something out of a vehicle. Robinson motions to his friends to come over and then appears to chest bump Zulu, after which things turn out for the worse.
Chaka grabs Robinson, but Crawford and Benton jump in and they all begin pummeling Chaka. At one point, Chaka’s female assistant (in the orange shirt) attempts to help Chaka, but Robinson punches her in the face, knocking her to the ground.
Crawford ducks for cover behind two vehicles, and that’s when shots ring out. It appears Chaka is the first to fire, striking Benton, a plume of smoke is visible from Chaka’s gun. Another plume of smoke appears to emanate from Crawford’s gun. It seemed that he fired several shots and one hits Chaka in the back.
Benton was hit in the chest and eventually died of his injuries. It is being maintained that Chaka shot in self-defence. We’ll keep you updated on this ongoing story.
