Dallas rapper Yella Beezy was shot eight times early Sunday morning, according to reports.
The That’s On Me rapper was said to have been traveling in a vehicle on a highway when the incident took place.
At least twelve shots were reported to have been fired, with Yella Beezy said to have been hit eight times.
Yella is said to have survived the attack before being taken to hospital. His current condition is unknown.
