"That's On Me" rapper Yella Beezy was shot multiple times early this morning in his hometown of Dallas, Texas.
The 26-year old was driving on the Sam Rayburn Tollway around 3:30 a.m when a car pulled up beside him and fired off a dozen shots. Beezy was rushed to a local hospital and is expected to recover from his injuries.
We can now confirm that rapper Yella Beezy -- whose "That's On Me" single has become one of the biggest songs of the year and one of the biggest rap hits ever out of Dallas -- was hospitalized after being shot last night.— Central Track (@Central_Track) October 14, 2018
The good news: Our sources say he is expected to be OK. pic.twitter.com/KGEa96qP7o
There is some speculation that the shooting may be related to the death of Dallas comedian Roylee Pate, who passed away of a blood clot Friday, two weeks after being shot himself. Pate and Beezy had had issues in the past, and some had connected Beezy to Pate's shooting tow week ago.
So far the authorities haven't announced any suspects.
