Fivio Foreign reportedly “good” after news broke that he was shot
Hip hop journalist Rob Markman, as well as other industry figures, revealed that the rapper is fine.
On Saturday (Aug. 8) afternoon, hip hop fans across social media got some shocking news about rising Brooklyn, New York rapper Fivio Foreign. Rumors began to circulate that he was reportedly shot outside of the Elleven45 lounge in Atlanta, Georgia. However, hip hop figures are saying that he’s actually fine.
Though there weren’t too many details about the incident at first, fans were quick to worry. A Twitter user by the name of @benjifrmthewest said, “My sister in ATL tellin’ me she can’t get to her crib bc somebody shot Fivio Foreign down the street from where she live & the streets blocked off.”
Footage of the scene that many believed Foreign was shot at can be viewed below.
One person whose reaction to the news immediately raised eyebrows was hip hop producer Murda Beatz. The hitmaker who’s known for working with some of the biggest names in rap music today took to his Instagram Stories to share a couple messages that had people thinking the worst about Foreign’s condition. However, both of those messages have since been deleted and Beatz later tweeted, “Thank God.”
Producer Kenny Beats soon took to Twitter to reveal that he got confirmation that the rapper was not dead — which many people began to believe on social media — but, in fact, OK. You can see his tweet below, as well.
Other people posted that Foreign was fine, too.
Foreign — who’s still on the come-up — is already known for a number of singles that he’s released such as “Move Like A Boss,” “Issa Vibe,” “Fully Focused,” and many more. He’s also collaborated with several fellow artists such as DaBaby, DreamDoll, French Montana, Quavo, DaniLeigh, Young M.A., Famous Dex and others.
We’re glad he’s good. We don’t need anymore bad news in 2020.
