Yella Beezy closed out September with a video for “Favors,” but now he’s in the hospital after being shot over the weekend.
Dallas News reports that Beezy was driving down the Sam Rayburn Tollway in Lewisville, Texas early Sunday morning when another vehicle pulled up and sprayed over a dozen bullets into his car. Police later found the injured rapper on the side of the State Highway 121 Bypass with three gunshot wounds. He was rushed to a nearby hospital and is now recovering.
No suspects have been named at this time, however Beezy was involved in a beef with local comedian Roy Lee who passed away from a blood clot earlier that day. It has been speculated this attempt on his life was in retaliation.
Check back for more information on the case as it develops. Yella Beezy’s popular single “That’s On Me” is available via Apple Music, Spotify, and other digital services now.
We can now confirm that rapper Yella Beezy — whose "That's On Me" single has become one of the biggest songs of the year and one of the biggest rap hits ever out of Dallas — was hospitalized after being shot last night.
