YG Reportedly Shot Three Times in Los Angeles

American rapper YG, whose real name Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson, was reportedly shot three times in Los Angeles on Friday night.


According to TMZ, the incident happened around 1:45 a.m. at Studio City. A friend of the Compton rapper drove him to a nearby hospital; when police arrived and attempted to interview YG, he was reportedly “very uncooperative.”

At the scene of the shooting, police reportedly found multiple shell casings and blood on the sidewalk. Reports added that the shooter has reportedly not been located.

His manager said the rapper “YG is fine. Shot three times but nothing life-threatening.”

On December 10, 2013, YG released the DJ Mustard-produced “Left, Right” as the album’s second single. The following day, Def Jam announced that My Krazy Life would be released on March 18, 2014 and that “Who Do You Love?” featuring Drake would be the album’s next single.

On February 18, 2014, YG revealed the cover artwork for his debut album My Krazy Life. The artwork features YG posing for a mugshot, with his name and album title detailed in the placard around his neck.
