Jermaine Shute, more widely known by his rap moniker, surrendered Thursday morning in connection to the shooting at Batter'd & Fried at 1008 Woodland St. in East Nashville, according to police spokesman Don Aaron.

Last night, reports surfaced about Starlito's alleged involvement in a restaurant shooting.
Metro police said it happened around 8:30 p.m. when James Fletcher, 36, entered the restaurant and "had words" with the rapper and another man. Police say surveillance video shows Fletcher punch the other man, prompting a fight to break out. The fight moved out of view of surveillance cameras, but Shute is accused of pulling out a gun and shooting Fletcher one time in the leg. (WKRN)
Earlier this week, fellow Tennessee rapper Young Buck blasted Starlito with a diss song following a physical altercation.
Buck initially appeared to fall back and not discuss the Lito feud.
"Swear to God, listen, one day I woke up and didn't give a f*ck about nothing. Nothing. I said, 'Oh, sh*t. I don't give a f*ck.' And the more I didn't give a f*ck, the more better I started feeling about myself. You understand what I'm talking about? When I ain't give a f*ck about what another n*gga was thinking or what another n*gga had to say about me. Because I don't put that much emphasis on another n*gga. I don't need no validation from another man, you feel what I'm talking about? So the more I didn't give a f*ck, I was practicing not giving a f*ck. I jumped down on my knees one morning and was like, 'God, thank-you please. Please, for not making me a h*e a** n*gga that give a f*ck about what other h*e a** n*ggas be talking about.' So the more I didn't give a f*ck the better I started to be for myself. You understand? The less I care about other people and how other people feel, is the best that I ever been.' You feel what I'm talking about? Straight up."
