“I have changed, now I concentrate on music. I apologize to Vittorio Brumotti”. Simone Rizzuto, aka ‘Mr Rizzus’, doesn’t look like a good boy but neither does he look like someone who doesn’t learn from his mistakes. In April 2019 he inveighed against the correspondent of Striscia la Notizia, present in Monza for a report on drug dealing in the railway station area, and now he repents for those insults. “I was wrong to write those things to him in chat – he explains to Ruetir – I felt provoked by his answers, but this is no excuse. A written question and answer was born, but I did not threaten him or his girlfriend”.
The investigations into the episode have closed and now the 22-year-old from Monza together with Jordan Tinti, a 23-year-old trapper known as Jordan Jeffrey Baby (who on his Facebook profile had invited to pour acid on Brumotti), are risking trial in Milan. “I don’t want to blame others, but I just want to clarify that it is not correct to attribute the same blame to us. I was not in Monza, I do not appear in the television report, I have never made any mention of using acid against a person. I admit to have made a mistake in writing offensive words, which at that moment I was not lucid, but in two years I changed and I no longer hang out with those who ‘used’ my name to make a show “, explains the young man assisted by the lawyer Angelo Pariani.
Simone, whose lyrics are getting more and more acclaim, does not deny that he is a “hothead” – a month ago he was caught with a small amount of marijuana in the house – “but I’m trying to improve. No more heavy highs, now mine. the only goal is music: I work on two musical projects, an important label is making me release a record, and I’m trying to change. I’m more mature now, even if I’m still a guy with transgressive lyrics “. And who knows if Brumotti won’t be in the next video. “If I had the possibility of a confrontation I would be willing, even if I believe that the fight against drug dealing should be left to the police”, concludes rapper Simone Rizzuto.
