A two-day trial has been scheduled by a Henrico County judge for an upcoming rapper who, according to a prosecutor, apparently believed that he had to sacrifice his friend to reach stardom, Huffington Post reports.
Wafeeq Sabir El-Amin, 27, allegedly fired a shot towards his friend’s head back in December, stating he was his ‘Sacrifice’ to stardom.
According to the warrant, the bullet when fired hit the victim’s hand sending bone and skin fragments into his eye. But the victim was able to get hold of the gun and shoot El-Amin in the stomach before he ran off.
While the victim is not being charged, Henrico Circuit Judge L.A. Harris Jr. denied bond Thursday for Wafeeq Sabir El-Amin, after El-Amin was described as danger to the public and a man who was so overcome with marijuana.
El-Amin says he could not remember the events of the month in which he committed the alleged crime.
Attorney Thomas L. Johnson said in court Thursday that the trial will delve into the hip-hop music culture and the notion that a secret society called the Illuminati has control over the success of some performers.
Johnson said in court that a book about the role of the Illuminati in hip-hop music and especially in the career of rap star 50 Cent was an obsession for El-Amin.
