Bet you all didn’t know that incarcerated dancehall artiste Ninjaman had a son who has made the big leagues. Well Corey Ballentine son of Desmond Ballentine aka Ninjaman was drafted by the New York Giants and what do you know, less just a few hours after his big break, he was shot.
The shooting which took place two Saturdays ago also saw another male being killed in the same incident.
Ballentine was playing football at a low-profile Division II school until he finally got his big break.
“I’ve been waiting on this opportunity for a lifetime really,” Corey told Giants coach Pat Shurmur after hearing the news.
But in a tragic turn just hours later, Ballentine was injured in an off-campus shooting in Topeka, Kansas, that killed one of his Washburn University teammates.
