Big Scarr ‘involved in shooting’ in 2020

In 2020, Big Scarr was apparently involved in a near-fatal shooting where the rapper was shot in the hip, according to his website.

He also claimed how once he was shot, and the bullet then traveled to his chest, saying, “I was moving, so the bullet kept moving too.”

“The doctors had to split me down the middle to save me. My insides got messed up, and they had to remove my appendix, so I could walk again. I recovered and bounced back way quicker than I thought though.”

Big Scarr came up with his stage name after he was involved in a car crash at 16, The Sun reports.

The rapper was allegedly thrown out of a car following a crash and, as a result, was left with several scars.
