Finese 2 Tymes Has Had Gunfire And People Shot At One Memphis Club

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - The early evening crowd is small at 360 Sports Bar Grille in South Memphis. It will get busier.

People were already talking about a performer that once was on stage here.

"Yeah, Finese 2 Tymes was here," says Mary Trice.

It was on April 2nd of this year. Mary was managing 360 Sports Bar Grille that night.

She says there wasn't anything unusual about Finese 2 Tymes performance that night, so she went home.

At midnight, she says the bullets started flying into the building from the outside parking lot.

"And it wasn't just one bullet," she said. "Try twenty something bullets. Two people got hit. the bullets went to the elevator to the hotel. This is not a joke, They're killing and hurting people for real."

Finese is from Memphis, and is well known in the music business says the man known as D.J. care bear. "To me, he is a very talented and up and coming artist." 

DJ Care Bear's real name is Nathaniel Stewart.

He is part of the Underground Railroad Entertainment Group and helps local artists get into the business.

He is not really surprised at the Little Rock shootings.

"I'm more surprised that they want to blame the music on the environment," Stewart says. "I think that's just the environment..the music doesn't have anything to do with it. Rap artists are having a good time, pouring out their stories and their experiences of this hard core life, you know."

Mary Trice, however, thinks Finese needs to take some of the blame for the shootings at her club and in Little Rock.

"I can't say if it is Finese," Trice says, "... but I can say this. when you are affiliated into an organization, when you are affiliated,and you go some place the organization doesn't like you...disrespect their town or city, then they retaliate. That's when retaliation starts."

Finese has never said he was a gang member, and there is no evidence to suggest he is. Little Rock Police, however, say gangs were involved in the shootings at his concert.
