Over the weekend, Detroit rapper Peezy was reportedly shot while in his hometown.
Details on the shooting remain scarce, but at one point it was reported that Peezy was shot in the head, and was in critical condition. A local radio station has since revealed that the rapper was not shot in the head (but was still shot) and is currently recovering.
“UPDATE: #Peezy was not the victim shot in the head (there were two separate shooting incidents). Fortunately Peezy is currently recovering well,” tweeted Detroit’s HOT 107.5 radio station on Monday (February 5).
Following news this weekend’s shooting, a number people, including Detroit rhymer Royce Da 5’9, expressed their concern on social media.
“Damn Peezy smh,” Royce tweeted.
Affiliated with Detroit’s Team Eastside rap collective, Peezy garnered solo success thanks to a series records, including “Money Callin” and “Looking Crazy.” Both records have garnered millions views on YouTube.
