YG Speaks Out After Shooting: I’m hard to kill.



YG (real name Keenon Daequan Ray Jackson) is speaking out for the first time, since he was shot on June 12th outside of a recording studio in LA. Since the incident, the details have remained vague but in his first interview since the incident, the 25-year-old rapper (who is said to be affiliated with the Bloods) tells Billboard what he remembers from that night and how he’s moving forward. Peep a few excerpts.


On what happened the night he was shot: 

A little incident. I got shot in my hip, but I’m all right.

On who shot him:

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.

Reports stating he was 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.

If he really did not see who shot you, what their motivation was and if he believes it was 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.
