Rapper NBA Youngboy was in the midst of a hellfire of bullets outside of the Trump hotel outside of Miami in Sunny Isle, Florida where he was staying to perform at the Rolling Loud Festival tonight. There’s no word on whether he’s performing still as reports have come in that his girlfriend Kay Marie was shot and one person was left dead. It’s also been reported that his security gunned down the shooter. It isn’t clear if that is the case, but someone can be seen in the footage being taken away in a stretcher. Youngboy’s vehicle is the black SUV shown prominently in the video. As to why he would be targeted, it isn’t clear but just a day ago he was feuding with rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine‘s baby mother, Sara Molina, and podcaster, Adam22. On top of that, he does have a bit of a record himself including a suspended 10 year sentence and 3 years probation for a shootout he was in in 2016.
Two of the three suspects in the shooting have been taken into custody. Suspects were armed with AK-47s and several other handguns according to police. Sunny Isle, Florida’s police department received calls of a shooting, which the Aventura department has now taken over the investigation of what happened. “An incident happened in Sunny Isles. We are working with investigators to see if they are related. Neither indicates a hate crime or terrorist event,” the Aventura police stated.
This shooting comes after a week where rapper Offset had his studio shot up in Atlanta and Young Thug had two of his party buses shot up. Whatever it is that’s going on needs to stop. There have been one too many close calls in hiphop lately.
