Crunchy Black isn’t letting getting shot slow him down. The former Three 6 Mafia member was shot in Las Vegas less than a week ago, but he’s already back to work.

In an interview with Too Real For TV, the bandaged up Memphis native spoke on his progress. “You already know, I’m already in the studio, ” he said. “Just trying to get some motherf-cking songs done. And just show [everyone] ain’t no stopping me.”

While some may take sustaining gunshot wounds to the face and the leg as a string of bad luck, Black sees the incident as a learning experience. “Every time I find out I got a new group of haters, it just helps me out a little more to keep on pushing and pushing and pushing. So yeah, it motivates me like a motherf-cker.”

He also likened the shooting to “Popeye eating some spinach.”

Black, born Darnell Carlton, hasn’t dropped a solo album since From Me To You in 2007.
