YG speaks for the first time about being shot in the hip earlier this month, as well as announcing the title of his second album.
YG gave us quite a scare a few weeks back when he was reportedly shot three times outside of a recording studio in Studio City, L.A. Today, he's spoken about the incident for the first time in an interview with Billboard.
The rapper revealed that he was not actually shot three times as previously reported (though we're still wrapping our heads around his explanation), and revealed that his sophomore album would be titled Still Krazy. He also played the publication eight new songs from the upcoming effort, which makes hopeful it could arrive later this year.
According to the rapper, he went back to the studio the next night on crutches, but he's now able to walk without them, and is on his way toward a full recovery.
Read an excerpt from the interview below, and read the full piece here.
What happened the night you got shot?
A little incident. I got shot in my hip, but I’m all right.
Who shot you?
I don’t know, and it don’t matter. I got lucky because a main artery is right there, right around the groin. The bullet didn’t go that deep, and it didn’t hit any bones.
Bullet? Reports said you were shot three times.
Nah, I got shot one time. It was three bullet holes because it went in, went out and went back in again.
Did you really not see who shot you? What do you think their motivation was? Was it gang-related?
It was not gang-related at all. It just happened out of the blue. We don’t know who did it, we don’t know why. We don’t know nothing.
How are you feeling now?
I’m good. I left the hospital that night, and the next day I went back to the studio. Nobody wanted me to go. My mama tells me, “What are you talking about ‘going to the studio?’” But you know, I got shit to do -- this shit don’t stop for nobody. I came straight to the studio on my little crutches.
