Shortly after, reportedly because Benny and his friends were moving too slow, one of the five assailants fired a round into the rapper’s leg. The attempted robbers fled the scene shortly after, and Benny’s team called the police.
Benny was taken to the hospital, and an investigation is currently underway.
It appears that the rapper is okay, according to HotNewHipHop. In a clip obtained by the platform via No Jumper, Benny is reportedly shown entering a jet while wearing crutches.
Benny isn’t the only rapper that has been a victim of gun violence recently.
