Compton Rapper Shares Cringeworthy Video After He Was Shot in the Head

Tariq Royal posts bloody footage online.

There is such thing as sharing too much information online. 

An aspiring rapper from Compton posted a selfie video to Facebook immediately after getting shot in the head last week, which was just too TMI.

Tariq Royal, who goes by “The Kid Spitta,” looks dazed in the video as blood rushes down his face and he manages to put together a coherent sentence. “I guess I’m really a rap n***a now, I just got shot.” Royal says breathing heavily.

According to Complex, Royal was hit by a bullet fragment from an AK-47. Not only does he record himself (with a second phone on his hear, hopefully to call 911), he pans over to a friend who also has blood trickling down his face.

The clip is extremely disturbing, yet Royal didn’t stop there. Just in case no one believed the story, he posted X-ray proof of the bullet fragment that stopped before penetrating his skull.

Royal admitted to being “in shock” when he recorded the now viral video. “GOD IS REAL AND GOD LOVES YOU,” he wrote before mentioning the shooter. “We living in some dark days, we wasn't even his targets, he was just trigger happy.”

Added Royal, “I’m just blessed to see another day and RAP ABOUT IT I just want yall to know.”
