Never believe what you see on the Internets.

A video of rapper Maino circulated through the night of the “Hi Hater” rap star getting shot on stage.

According to, the entire clip was for show. Maino told Miss Info that the video actually shows a scene from the Benny Boom movie, “Dice City,” that he just filmed last week.

Someone on set apparently recorded the footage on a cellphone and started the rumor that Maino had gotten shot in real life. Maino performs himself, takes a shell and is equipped with some fake blood packets for a realer effect.

But Maino fans, have no fear. It was all in the name of cinema. Check the YouTube clip of the faux shooting below.
