Over the weekend, two alleged “best friends,” and struggle rappers, got into a heated argument about who was the better artist (seriously) at their video shoot, which left one of them shot multiple times and in the hospital. Footage of the incident has been released and to say that it’s shocking is an immense understatement.
In the footage, captured at the bodega in the Bronx where it went down, the still at large suspect is seen unloading a full clip into who witness Ali Abdul said was his “best friend.” The shooter never lets go of his drink, and when he runs out of bullets, proceeds to pistol whip the victim.
What may be worse is how calmly the multiple witnesses calmly step over the victim, who is seen writhing in pain on the floor. The 37-year-old victim is currently in critical condition at Lincoln Hospital but is expected to survive.
The struggle is very, very real.
