Hours after assuring fans she was doing OK, City Girls rapper Yung Miami said that she’s not really doing as well as she first led people to believe after surviving a violent attack earlier this week. 


  1. Early Tuesday morning (August 6), the 25-year-old was leaving a recording studio in North Miami in her red Mercedes G-Wagon when she was suddenly shot at from behind multiple times.

    Thankfully, no one was injured during the shooting, but the frightening reality of the situation has probably left a few nerves more than frazzled.

  2. Immediately following the incident, Yung Miami promised fans and supporters that she was fine and thanked them for their prayers and kind words. "Thank you everyone for your expression of sympathy, prayers & condolences. Me and baby summer is perfectly fine," she penned.  

    While she made it out unscathed, it seems that the 25-year-old is still emotionally healing from her close brush with death. Her first update following the shooting has now been scrubbed from her Instagram page and, on Wednesday (August 6), social media blog The Shade Room shared a screengrab of another heart-rending update from Miami’s IG stories that has fans concerned after she promised she was coping just fine after the shooting. 


  3. In the post, Miami laid bare that she is still coming to terms with the reality that the incident could have ended with a tragically different outcome. "I keep looking at my pictures & all my mentions like it really could've been R.I.P.," she wrote with a broken heart and sad face emoji. "I'm really not okay!"

    Some of her rap sisters came through to let Miami, who is pregnant with her second child, know they got her back and left uplifting messages on social media. Cardi B wrote in her IG stories “God got you. You are destined for greatness, period.” Rico Nasty also penned a message of support for Miami when the news first broke.

    As of now, Miami hasn’t posted any further updates to her Instagram, save for a post promoting her latest magazine cover.
