Former Three 6 Mafia Member Crunchy Black Shot In Las Vegas [PHOTOS]


Memphis rapper and former Three 6 Mafia member Crunchy Black was shot in Las Vegas late Sunday night and is currently under medical care while recovering from the wound, this according to a report from Vlad TV. Crunchy Black, born Darnell Carlton, was shown in a photo lying in a bed and looked to be in obvious pain.

Bandages around his torso covered where the wound may have taken place, but authorities have yet to release any official details surrounding the shooting. Black gamely flashes a random gang sign in the flick, while sitting propped up in the hospital bed. He is expected to make a full recovery.

Fans of Three 6 Mafia may remember Crunchy Black from his 2006 solo effort On My Own, which was released by DJ Paul and Juicy J without Black’s consent. Crunchy Black left Three 6 Mafia that same year to pursue his solo career. Check out the photos of Black in the hospital in the gallery.

Get well soon, Crunchy Black!
