Just one month after the shooting, Gai admitted to popping off on his Hip-Hop Weekly running uncle in defense of himself and his family. 

“I shot at him; I was in fear for my wife and a baby,” he said during a hearing hearing in Plymouth District Court back in April 2014. “He’s been threatening my life.”

Apparently, Benzino had engaged in an on-going feud with his sister and her boy over their taking financial advantage of his mother before she died.   

Gai’s sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 26.

So far, no word on whether or not Benzino plans on being present in the courtroom when the judge hands his neph them years…
