A trial date of June 26 has been set for a man who prosecutors say attempted to sacrifice his friend last year, in hopes of joining the Illuminati, an act he believed would’ve launched his rap career.
27-year-old Wafeeq Sabir El-Amin of Richmond, Virginia was charged with malicious wounding after the aspiring rapper fired a shot towards the head of his friend after declaring him “as his sacrifice.” The bullet luckily ricocheted off the victim’s hand but sent bone and skin fragments into his eye.
Prosecutors say El-Amin was obsessed with the Illuminati, especially as it related to the rap career of 50 Cent. An executed search warrant on the home of where the incident occurred turned up a book about the secret society and a pound of marijuana. By his own admission, the rapper confessed that he was high at the time and doesn’t recall the December attack.
