Chaka Zulu, Music Exec And Manager Of Ludacris, Shot And Wounded In Atlanta
The manager of rapper Ludacris was injured in a shooting last weekend but is currently in “stable condition.”
The shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. Sunday night outside a restaurant in the Buckhead district of Atlanta. According to police, two other men were also hospitalized after the incident and one has since died.
The identities of the other victims have not been released, and police say they are still attempting to determine a motive for the shooting and openly investigating the matter. No other arrests have been made.
Zulu founded Disturbing Tha Peace records in 1998 with his brother and Ludacris because Ludacris failed to get a major record deal, so they decided to build an independent label for other southern artists.
The executive is still co-president of the label, which is now a subsidiary of Def Jam South Recordings. He also represents artists like Chingy, Shawnna, Young Jeezy, Big K.R.I.T. and Swizz Beatz through Disturbing Tha Peace.
A representative for Ludacris was asked for comment, but no reply was received at the time of publication.
