Los Angeles rapper FrostyDaSnowmann, real name Maasai Lopez, was shot and is in critical condition after a double shooting in Inglewood.
According to local reports, two people were shot in Inglewood on Tuesday in the late afternoon. Local police officers responded to a call near North La Brea Avenue and Centinela Avenue.
The two individuals were taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. The responding officers noted that a damaged car was near the shooting scene, but its involvement in the incident is unclear.
FrostyDaSnowmann was not named in the report but has been identified on social media by several associates.
The Inglewood rapper is not dead despite the rumors on social media.
The double shooting that left the rapper in critical condition occurred around the Inglewood and Los Angeles border. Therefore, the incident is being investigated by the LAPD and Inglewood PD, according to a local CBS report.
Frosty updated his Instagram Story seemingly hours before the shooting in which he recorded himself driving an Audi.
No suspects have been named at the time of writing this report, as the investigation is ongoing.

In an interview, the rapper was asked to described his style of music and said the following:
“I would describe it as the new LA. The new LA wave was basically about getting on a beat and just being yourself, rapping about what you really doing. I’m a fly-ass n***a; that’s why I get on there and pop grease. Just wavy, it’s the new sound. There’s no describing it, you just have to be the first place. I’m so first place; it’s ridiculous.”
Frosty is an independent rapper and frequently releases music on his YouTube channel, SnowGurb. His independently released music often gets over 100,000 views.
Earlier this year, California rapper IndianRedBoy was shot in Inglewood.
