Published Nov 20, 2009In a stark contrast to the petty online sparring that makes up the Fiery Furnaces/Beck/Radiohead beef, the workers at Grand Hustle Records faced a life-threatening situation early Thursday morning (November 19) when two mysterious bottles were discovered in their parking lot. Upon further inspection, it was revealed that the bottles were explosive devises, crudely known as Molotov cocktails.
The label, which was founded by incarcerated rapper T.I., immediately called the police, who sent a SWAT team to clean up the dangerous bottles. Speaking with MTV News, Grand Hustle employee Jason Geter said the attack was likely related to an altercation the label had with someone a few days earlier.
"A kid came over there a couple of days ago that acted kind of crazy," Geter said. "I wasn't there, but some kid that was a little off was pretty much asking for somebody to come to his party. He got a little irate when he was in the office. We're kind of assuming it was him. He made a couple of threats when he was in the office. Two days later, this happens. You can't help but say, 'It must have been this idiot.'"
Geter also said that the employees at Grand Hustle are ready to move on from this incident, with 2010 releases planned from Young Dro, B.O.B, DJ Drama and 8ball & MJG.
