German Rapper In Shooting Stunt?

German hip-hop star MASSIV has been accused of staging a street shooting in a bid to boost album sales. The gangster rapper was strolling the streets of tough Berlin neighbourhood Neukolln when a man pulled up and fired four bullets at Massiv, one passing straight through his right shoulder, according to a statement released by his record label No Limits Music. A spokesman added, "Massiv is totally shocked. He lost a lot of blood and was near death." However, police have cast doubt on the scale of the incident - while they accept bullets were fired, they describe Massiv's injury as a mere graze to the skin. Cops are also flummoxed by reports of his brush with death, which began to appear on Massiv's website just minutes after the attack. A police spokesman says, "Several shots are supposed to have been fired at the singer from close range, so we are rather surprised that only one bullet grazed his arm. However, there is no doubt that there was an incident." Massiv has vehemently denied allegations the incident was a publicity stunt to promote his new album One Man One Word, due out next month (Feb08).
