Yung Mal & Lil Quill were the target of a highway drive-by shooting.
The young duo signed to 1017 records played a gig at DMG Studios for the Plugged in Nashville concert issues, reserved for industry types and up and coming artists. According to 1017 Eskimo Records' Instagram account, two cars pulled after their performance and began spraying Yung Mal & Lil Quill's tour bus with gunfire for unknown reasons. The driver of their bus was also hit in the process.
1017 Eskimo reported that both rappers suffered lacerations in their legs, with bullets luckily going in and out of the body. Yung Mal also suffered gun wounds to his back. Yung Mal had the presence of mind to update his fans on his condition. He posted a message along with a photo of him appearing in good spirits. He also takes a moment to thank God and the hospital staff for keeping his morale up during the intervention. Yung Mal's middle finger pose boasts a moral victory over his shooters.
XXL reached out the parent company of 1017 Eskimo Records for comment to no avail. The motives of attack are still unknown. Yung Mal's cheeky grin suggest he has more insight onto the situation than he's letting on. We at HotNewHipHop wish the dynamic duo a speedy recovery, regardless of the fact.
