There’s not a day that goes by that a new rap star isn’t making waves in the HipHop scene. Despite the success of these rap stars, violence often surrounds them. The rap scene, unfortunately, caters to crime and gang violence. Several emcees have either walked away from fatal gun wounds or were killed in an organized hit. The latest crime story unfolded this weekend on the set of Roddy Ricch and 42 Drugg’s Atlanta video shoot.
A Video Shoot Goes Up In Gunfire
Most rap stars don’t come from the right side of the tracks. Emcees like Roddy Ricch and 42 Druggs grew up in the Hood and encountered daily hardships, sometimes even life-threatening instances. Unfortunately, the two rappers faced gun violence this past weekend. According to HipHopDX, gunshot fires were heard from the set of their video shoot in Atlanta.
Incoming details reveal that officers responded to gunshot fires at a local scrap yard at 4pm on Sunday. Authorities found three victims injured in the gunfire; one man grazed by a bullet and the other two men drove themselves to Grady Memorial Hospital. No word yet on whether or not the victim’s conditions have improved but hopefully they’re okay.
Roddy Ricch & 42 Drugg Avoided The Gunfire
The victims fate remains uncertain for now. Though, Roddy Ricch and 42 Druggs were safe from harm’s way. Reporter Steve Gehlbach noted that neither rapper showed up on set at the time of the shooting. They picked a good time not to go into work. Nonetheless, Gehlbach did confirm that the shooting took place at the scrap yard. Additionally, the reporter tweeted a short blurb about the mass shooting. The post also included pictures from the video shoot showing the crime scene unfold. Luckily, Roddy Ricch and 42 Druggs didn’t show up to the video shoot that day.
